Apo11o ll

Garbled transmissions.

Aldrin: And mine's about 5,800, also.

Armstrong: That was a beautiful burn. Can't ever tell on B - We're standing by for a Go for sequence logic On.

Comm: CapCom, Goldstone. I read you loud and clear.

Comm: The TV people do not have access to Net 1 in that area. Go ahead.

Network: Roger. Over.

Comm: CapCom, Goldstone. Read you the same.

Aldrin: Roger. Ready to copy.

Aldrin: Hell, that must be lightning.

Duke: 11, Houston. Say again.

Aldrin: Roger. Mark.

Armstrong: Did you get a secondary radiator leak check?

Aldrin: Rog. Houston, Apollo 11.

Armstrong: I've got to - look at the...

McCandless: In sports, the Houston Oilers are showing plenty of enthusiasm in their early pre-season workouts at Kerrville, and Coach Wally Lemm says he is impressed with the fine group of rookies. Over. Make that for the next orbit. Out.

Aldrin: But I can't see [garble] - I see the Earth, but it's a lousy picture.

Collins: It's getting appreciably larger now.

Aldrin: This pitch angle is quite a bit off nominal; 196 instead of 212. You're not going to fool around with that camera any more, are you?

onboard): Ignition.

Aldrin: Houston, Apollo 11.

Aldrin: We're on the back side now, right?

Armstrong: The next rev around, that is.

Collins: 6½.

Aldrin: Now the crater that's in the center of the screen now is Webb. Good show.

Collins: [Inaudible on air-ground] Roger. It came out to be 247. I'm rolling.

Duke: Roger. [Long pause.]

Collins: Okay. Stand by one.

Armstrong: Okay - What's the AOS time? What's that?

Armstrong: Yes, I think we're about ready.

Collins: Okay, looks pretty good to me now. CMC, Auto.

Armstrong: (Push-to-Talk) Roger.

Collins: It's [garble]. Forgot to memorize John Mayer's views out the window well enough to say that's Venus or not, but it's sure bright. Thank you. Just checking the radios, and how is the thruster activity coming?

Aldrin: Huh? Over. Over.

Armstrong: Okay.

Duke: Rog. Stand by. How me? And, 11, the angles for you are 1978 for roll, 1285 pitch, 3400 yaw.

Armstrong: Yes.

McCandless: Roger, 11. [No answer.]

McCandless: Apollo 11, this is Houston through Carnarvon. [Long pause.] We concur.

Aldrin: Can you see us underneath the LM over at the SEQ bay, Houston?

Armstrong: 180, if you don't mind. Glad I got my card up.

Armstrong: Okay, Delta-V Thrust, Normal, A, is Off. (Pause) (onboard) Okay, 2000 at 50. Whoops - Sorry.

Collins: Roger. [Long pause.]

Collins: Okay. You are. It's within 5 degrees tolerance. Over.

Aldrin: Okay.

Evans: Affirmative. (Long Pause) Columbia, Houston. [Pause.]

onboard): Okay.

Aldrin: Allow probe to damp spacecraft oscillations?

Garriott: Roger. Over.

Collins: Now, let's see...

McCandless: Roger. They're all smiles down here, even the trench.

Armstrong: [Garble] pressures are Go. Sounds like wind whipping around the trees.

Collins: So I guess the comm's pretty well taken care of?

Armstrong: Burning. EMS Function, Off. Yes.

Collins: Rog.

Aldrin: Roger.

McCandless: (Laughter) Okay. Loud and clear now, Mike, and we understand that you are docked.

Collins: Neil, do you recall the highest rate you saw during this recent thruster activity?

Armstrong: I said, this is my field geology [garble].

Duke: Roger. We're Go. We were swapping antennas on you down here. Out.

Armstrong: And I'm ready to get a time hack from you.

Collins: Yeah.

Duke: Roger. ...You're very scratchy.

Aldrin: Okay.

Collins: Okay.

Aldrin: Roger. Houston, we'll give it a try if we have the opportunity on next rev, when we're not in the middle of lunch, and trying to find the monocular.

Armstrong: [Garble.]

Armstrong: Okay.

Collins: Sounds good to me.

McCandless: Roger. Go ahead.

Collins: Stand by one. Thank you a lot. Ready. You're going to let me land closer to Hawaii too, aren't you?

Duke: That's affirmative, Buzz.

Duke: Roger, Mike.

Armstrong: Those guys down there in the trench did a pretty good job this flight.

Aldrin: The only trouble is, it's towards - towards 90, isn't it?

Armstrong: Now, look.

Armstrong: Let's see how the DSKY thinks it looks.

Collins: Everybody happy with that?

Aldrin: It's coming across now from right to left. Here comes the old Sun.

Aldrin: Houston, Tranquility.

Collins: Houston, Apollo 11. [Long pause.] [Long pause.]

Armstrong: Let's get your clock first and then we'll get TEphem.

Collins: DSKY blanks.

Duke: Roger. [Long pause.] [Long pause.]

Duke: Hallelujah! It might take you a couple of minutes to integrate these vectors that we gave you and if you don't make TIG, it's pretty insensitive. Houston. Over. Stand by. Stand by. Looks like you need a wine skin up there, Mike.

Collins: This 16-millimeter camera, Buzz, with the 18-millimeter lens...you got it shoved all the way up toward the window.

Duke: Apollo 11, Houston. Over. FIDOs are looking at the data. ] Buzz, we're on low bit rate. LM weight, 33627; CSM weight, 36651; pitch trim, 00470; roll trim, 00589. We're standing by for your burn report. Over. Over.

Collins: Five minutes.

Duke: Roger. Over.

Collins: Standby one, Charlie.

Armstrong: (Chuckling) You can really throw things a long way up here! Yes.

Aldrin: Right on (meaning that their vertical velocity is exactly as expected).. Coming up to...This is H-dot Max now.

Armstrong: Thank you, Jim. I'll move this (LEC) over the handrail. That far?

Aldrin: ... Service Module RCS propellant, verify eight of them grey.

Armstrong: Okay.

McCandless: Roger. [Long pause.]

Aldrin: Roger. The last one was - stand by. Shades of Gemini retrofire, are you sure we're - (laughter) - No, let's see - the motors point this way and the gases escape that way, therefore imparting a thrust that-a-way.

Duke: Eagle, Houston. Over.

Aldrin: As we are looking at it through the scanning telescope, it would be about a - oh, maybe a third of an Earth radii high and to the left.

Armstrong: Go ahead, Houston.

Aldrin: 403 I think we [garble].
