Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Good show. You ready to copy?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. CSM coarse aline angles: ROLL, plus 298.95; PITCH, plus 271.30; YAW, plus 000.20.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. The command module angles will be: ROLL, 298.95; PITCH, 271.30; and YAW, 000.20.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, and that's for his VERB 41 NOUN 20 when he gets there.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Go ahead, Houston; Aquarius here.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. We're getting about 9 minutes from the commencement of command module powerup, and we wanted to just mention to you for Jack's benefit that, although the batteries are looking real good, in case they're cool and have a little difficulty hacking the load just at first, we'd like him to monitor main bus voltage to 24 volts or above during the powerup procedure and, if it falls below, we'll have a couple of circuit breakers for him that—that will solve the problem.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. And I take it you're also monitoring main bus voltage.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Negative. Not in the command module at this time, because we don't call up telemetry until a little bit later on.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Ah so. That's right; I forgot. Okay. I will tell him.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. You're GO to start powering up the command module.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Right-o. We're starting now.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. We have LM power breakers.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Houston, you're looking at it.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. That's—That's it, Joe.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. We have command module AOS. Request OMNI Charlie in the CM. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

OMNI Charlie. Okay. Standby.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

That was sent through a new onboard communication system known as yelling through the tunnel.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I've got Fred up there with Jack now helping to power up the CM, and I'm staying down in good old Aquarius.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Just to inform you. We've got data from the—from Odyssey, and it looks good.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Houston, Aquarius. Odyssey is trying to call. Can you read them?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Negative. Don't read Odyssey yet; has he got his intercom panel configured?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I'll doublecheck. They're hearing you.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Good deal. I don't hear them, yet.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Are you ready for an E-MEMORY dump, VERB 74?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Stand by for just 1 minute, Jim.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We've got a lot of things to do, Houston.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

I know it. Okay, Aquarius; Houston. Recommend in Odyssey that he switch the POWER AMPLIFIER to LOW. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

POWER AMPLIFIER to LOW.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

It's been switched to LOW, Houston.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. Okay. Verify the POWER AMP talkback is gray, Jim.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. That's verified.
