Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And AGS PULSE is the recommendation.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We're having trouble maneuvering, Joe, without getting it in gimbal lock.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

You picked a lousy attitude, though, to separate.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Well, we apologize. Just take your time. Jim, we've got time now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Houston, why can't I stay in PGNS ATT HOLD for the LM attitude hold?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Our recommendation is that you stay in AGS for the LM JETT simply because we've thought it through. We've got the right deadbands and all set up. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. It's a lot easier for me to maneuver in PGNS, Joe, than it is AGS.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Yes. You can maneuver in PGNS, Jim. I'm sorry, I thought you were talking about the ATT HOLD and the LM JETT afterward. You can maneuver in PGNS if you want to.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I want to get way over here, Joe. To prevent him into gimbal lock, I have the yaw at about—I'd say about almost 50 degrees.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger that. Just stay out of gimbal lock and that 45-degree isn't critical—the out of plane, that is.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Odyssey, Houston. Request OMNI Charlie.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Going OMNI Charlie.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. That's VERB 46. Roger. Aquarius, Houston.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. The particular DAP configuration we have set up now is using more fuel than we'd like out of system B. We'd like you to reconfigure the DAP to 30021. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

We'd like to have you turn the optics power off until you need them again, and we would like to have you check the RCS ring 1 and 2 temps for us. Over.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Joe. Our ring 1 is 50; ring 2 is plus 42.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Ring 1 is 50; copy. What was the other?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston; Aquarius. I am at the LM SEP attitude and I'm planning on bailing out.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. I can't think of a better idea, Jim.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I'll go to AGS ATT HOLD, if you want me to.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

We recommend that, Jim.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Aquarius; Houston. In AGS ATT HOLD, we recommend WIDE DEADBAND. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I'm in the AGS DEADBAND.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Don't forget the …

Fred Haise (LMP)

You need to relay something downstairs, Jim?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Our troops would like to have you go to the SYSTEMS TEST METER and read out the injector temps on RCS for us.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Houston. Let me read out the injector temperatures for you.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

5 Charlie, 4.2; 5 Dog, 4.6; 6 Alfa, 4.3; 6 Bravo, 4.3; 6 Charlie, 3.6; 6 Dog, 3.6.
