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.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

We have high bit rate; we are standing by for the VERB 74 ENTER and the E-MOD dump.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Loud and clear. VERB 74 coming down.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

And I'll be ready for your P27 update.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Understand you are in P00 and ACCEPT. Verify OMNI Charlie.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Joe, we are OMNI Charlie. We have little bit better signal strength on another OMNI.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Odyssey; Houston. Select your own best OMNI and then repeat VERB 74 ENTER. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Odyssey; Houston. We are locked on solid high bit rate now; repeat the VERB 74 ENTER. Over. Delay that; hold the VERB 74 1 minute. Wait.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

You're too late, Joe; it's coming down.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Odyssey, Houston.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. We are going to skip the E-MOD dump for right now and get the uplink in.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. P00 and ACCEPT.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. P00 and ACCEPT. And, Jack, you can go ahead with the IMU and optics powerup. Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

… unable to read any BAT B voltage. We do have current, though, on BAT B.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

You're looking good on the ground, Odyssey.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And I think the reason you don't read voltage is it's a circuit breaker that we have called as being out.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Odyssey, Houston. The uplink is going well. We have one more load to get in.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Is the computer mine now, Joe?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack. We'd like the VERB 74 ENTER, and it'll take less than a minute for E-MOD dump.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And, Jack, Houston. It'll be 100 seconds on that.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Can I go to BLOCK on the UP TELEMETRY?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Odyssey, Houston. You can go to UP TEL BLOCK. Over,

Jack Swigert (CMP)

UP TEL BLOCK and the computer is mine.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Not yet, Jack. We're still in the E-MOD dump. And, Aquarius, Houston.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. We're coming up on time for the coarse aline, Jim, so you can hold your attitude real good.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And, Odyssey, Houston. The computer is yours. You can press on.
