McCandless: Roger. Couple of quick flight plan updates here. Over.

Collins: Halfway through it, it looks like I have [garble] degrees in roll is about all. TVC Servo Power 1 and 2, Off. [Long pause.]

Collins: It just so happens that's what we were talking about now. I'm supposed to be doing VHF marks only, and it's for the next 6 or 7 minutes.

SC: (Yawn)

McCandless: Okay.

Armstrong: (Garbled)

PAO: Lt. Hatleberg putting on his Biological Isolation Garment. T minus 25 seconds.

Collins: Could I have that map that y'all were looking at before, that lunar map? ] [Long pause.] Standing by for your Mark.

McCandless: 11, Houston. Reading you loud and clear. The data that we're receiving looks good and we are receiving Sync pulses and a black signal on TV.

Aldrin: Okay.

Duke: Roger, 11. [Long pause.] Over. [Pause.] We're really amazed at the quality of the picture up in the tunnel. [Pause.] Over.

Duke: 11, Houston.

Armstrong: We're up to 6...

Aldrin: Wide.

Duke: Roger.

Collins: Sounds like there's a story behind that one, too. [Garble] is up.

Aldrin: I'll let you know for sure when it goes to either 12 or 18. Going to Omni Charlie. I'm going to put the R in the reserve camera.

McCandless: 11, this is Houston. We concur, and we certainly wish we could see it first hand, also.

Aldrin: 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, Abort Stage, Engine Arm, Ascent, Proceed.

Aldrin: No.

Armstrong: Okay.

Aldrin: EMS Mode, Stand by. I've been thinking maybe they ought to stay sealed up. Here's one.

McCandless: Columbia. Standing by for your readback. We're still not receiving Buzz's audio. Over.

Armstrong: [Garble.]

McCandless: [Laughter] Ruby Graham, an astrologer here in Houston. Ron Evans is getting... You're coming in very weakly there. ] Roll zero.

Collins: Go ahead.

Collins: Roger.

Duke: Eagle, Houston.

Duke: Apollo 11, Houston. [Pause.]

Collins: Okay. [Garble] your window.

Aldrin: Main Bus Tie A coming On.

Collins: Apollo 11. I tried it already.

Aldrin: Okay, check it again.

Collins: They're trying.

Collins: Roger. Okay. I have no indication of it.

Collins: You got it on infinity for one thing.

Armstrong: [Garble.] I'm going to go to...Run my cooling up a little bit. We're over Mount Marilyn at the present time, and it's ignition point.

Aldrin: Okay. Probably GDC's off a lot more than that.

Armstrong: In Block. Don't want to do that until... A good bit lighter than the tunnel was earlier. Mike?

Duke: Roger. Rog.

Duke: Aww, that's enough you guys. Thank you very much.

Collins: Roger, Houston. Good gravy! Give them some scientific name.

Aldrin: Well, we don't want them. Okay.

Armstrong: The next rev around, that is.

Aldrin: Okay. What was the time we got on it?

Evans: Good. [Long pause.] Over.

Aldrin: Well, that's going to be...

Armstrong: ...look at the Moon ahead of us, coming out the window right now.

Aldrin: I don't understand.

McCandless: ...11, this is Houston. We've been looking at your consumables, and you're in good shape. Over.

McCandless: [Inadvertent keying] CapCom. [Long pause.] Over.

Armstrong: What's your altitude? 8, 8 and 8.5. Go ahead.

Aldrin: That affirmative. I got two balls...

McCandless: Apollo 11, this is Houston. Over. Good night.

McCandless: Apollo 11, this is Houston. We've completed the uplink; the computer is yours. Did you copy my P22 PAD? Over.

Collins: What else? It looks okay, I fire the bottle right away.

Aldrin: We're burning ours, Mike.

Duke: Rog. You guys have been making most of it and I'm sure we couldn't fill you in on any of the details that you don't already know. Houston. Roger.

PAO: The elapsed time for end of blackout; 195 hours, 7 minutes even. It did appear it might have been Mike Collins.

PAO: Have a good view here of the computer and display and keyboard assembly with the green lights flashing.

Duke: Roger. Over. [Pause.] Don't try to chase it, just hold what you've got.

Aldrin: Okay.

Duke: That's affirmative. Over (Pause; static clears)

Collins: Well, we're almost at sleep attitude.

Armstrong: Isn't that something?

Duke: Roger, 11.

Collins: I'm not sure we should be shooting this - what we're shooting at or one point set. No, I just got through aligning it a little while ago.

Aldrin: But you want to get it before TLC. (Garbled) Over.

Duke: We've - 11, we've lost our picture here, now. Over. Your angles are 270 in yaw, pitch minus 50. [Pause.]

Aldrin: How far are - out are we now, Charlie? [Long pause.]
