Apo11o ll

Garbled transmissions.

Aldrin: Roger.

Armstrong: We're - we're willing to let him go but he hasn't come up with the price of the ticket yet.

Collins: [Garble] O2 fuel cell's [garble]. I tried it already. Huh? Over and out.

Armstrong: Stabilization Control circuit breakers are Closed.

McCandless: (Guffaws over the "3/4") Tranquility, this is Houston. Out.

Armstrong: Okay. Should I be going [garble]?

Aldrin: Want me to check it? I keep getting mostly black and blue. 90, okay, Off, 50. Hey, Mike, what would you recommend as a good setting on the 16 millimeter?

Duke: Roger. I'll get the straight story for you. Rog.

Duke: Rog. Say again. We recommend you accept the Noun 49. [Long pause.]

Collins: Okay, that ought to almost get it there and, damn, I don't want to see any more than that. [Garble] we got 15 [garble].

Armstrong: Go ahead.

Collins: No, we're not Orb-rate.

Aldrin: How long do we want to run this film?

Armstrong: Mike, what are you transmitting on up there?

Aldrin: ...

Duke: Rog, Neil. [Pause.]

Armstrong: Cable? [Garble] star check [garble] I don't care about [garble]. Oh, you got about 30 degrees to go.

Aldrin: Where do we have to go to get a tissue? Translation Controller, clockwise.

Collins: And, if you'll excuse me a minute, I'm going to have a cup of coffee. [Long pause.]

Aldrin: Yes, we sure do, Houston.

Armstrong: Okay, we've gone by that, however, quite a ways.

McCandless: Neil, this is Houston.

Collins: I'll tell you what we ought to do, [garble].

McCandless: On your next pass, Columbia, rather than performing a P22 as such, we would like you to look in the vicinity of the coordinates that we gave you, which is our best analysis based on math/physics and the trajectory. Over. [Long pause.]

Aldrin: About 2 degrees off in the pitch...

Duke: All right. If you'll turn to page F2-20. We were seeing some - believe it or not, we were seeing some funnies on the Eagle's rendezvous radar...

Collins: Charlie, we're going to rotate about pitch 270 degrees on the way home vice 1 - or 090 on the way out.

Duke: Rog. Thirty-seven minutes 'til T3.

Collins: How many? Delta-V Thrust A and B are Off...

Duke: Okay. [Long pause.]

PAO: And we have data right on schedule.

Collins: Houston, Apollo 11.

Duke: Rog. Over. [Pause.]

Aldrin: Shaking at 3 minutes.

Armstrong: Just from the APS firing, you think?

Collins: The Sun bounces off the LM structure.

Armstrong: Okay.

Collins: Okay.

Aldrin: Okay. TEI-4: 38658, minus 0.54, plus 0.65, 084:29:50.59, plus 3137.3, plus 0376.0, minus 0096.8; roll NA, pitch 034; two jets, 19 seconds; undocked; assumes no LOI-2. How's that going to affect...

Aldrin: ...what stuck to the spacecraft, I think you can see afterwards... (Pause) (Pause) Armstrong: Looking good here. (Do) you want this bag?

Evans: Columbia, Houston.

Aldrin: Okay. Ready to copy the Flight Plan update and P37.

Armstrong: You're a little less. Main Bus Ties: AC, Off; DC, Off.

Aldrin: I like the neat way he's got his - safety belt on - [garble] should be about in the right place. Alright, let's go to - pitch to 180, 285, and zero.

Collins: Thank you.

Aldrin: I guess we leave this here or do you want to take it up?

Armstrong: Yes, we can...

Collins: Okay.

Collins: We'll - We'll put up a couple of hoses in the Command Module here and get a little circulation going. How many minutes we got - to AOS?

Aldrin: I believe that.

McCandless: Tranquility Base, this is Houston. [Long pause.]

Armstrong: Do you have any idea where the S-IVB is with respect to us? Throttle down on time.

McCandless: Roger. Readback. (Long Pause)

Collins: Batt bus B is 37.

Armstrong: I could sure get the stop watch, huh?

Aldrin: Got it.

Duke: That's affirmative. We'll have some word for you in a minute how everything looks.

Aldrin: And you got Verb 76 in? Probably ... telephoto.

Armstrong: I think you probably want sort of a wide angle...

Duke: Okay, Apollo 11, Houston. [Pause.] Over. You can go step 5 now. Over.

Collins: Okay.

McCandless: Roger. Are you having any difficulties with gas in the food bags like the 10 crew reported? Mark.

Armstrong: Yes.

McCandless: Roger. Good morning, Apollo 11.

McCandless: This is with the new REFSMMAT, Buzz.

PAO: The BIG swimmer has reported communicating with the astronauts by visual hand signals through the hatch window. We'll continue to stand by. They sat down for the normal astronaut fare on launch day, as far as breakfast is concerned; orange juice, steaks, scrambled eggs, toast and coffee. 35,000 feet per second.

McCandless: Roger.

Armstrong: It's going straight out there through. 6 plus 25.

Aldrin: [As if] it's not bad enough, not finding the right landing spot...

Armstrong: Now, look.

Collins: Delta-VI - going to be... High Gain Antenna; pitch, plus 14 and yaw, 263.

Duke: Columbia, Houston, with the PDI plus 12 Noun 84, if you're ready to copy.

Armstrong: Roger.

Aldrin: , Egress).

Collins: Roger. Auto verified.

Aldrin: I turned it on.

Collins: Accept this with a Proceed. Roger. The last one - you know when all the plumbing was warmed up, the hydrogen gun and everything, was warmest of the three. ...so you can - enter on this one.

Aldrin: Hey, Mike. Rog. Yes, I'll get right to it.

Armstrong: See the monocular... Okay.

McCandless: Roger. And could you verify that your waste compartment valve is in Vent, there?

McCandless: Mode IV capability. Over.

Collins: Alright.

McCandless: Roger, Columbia. Did you copy my P22 PAD?

McCandless: Roger. Tranquility Base. Out.

Aldrin: [Garble] correction on that last [garble].

Armstrong: I don't know, I think we'd almost be better just by looking at the monitor, Buzz.

Collins: [Garble].

Armstrong: What state vector is in the LM slot? We got it; thank you.

Duke: Roger. It looks like it's going to be real nice for recovery.

Aldrin: Go ahead. [Garble] VHF [garble] circuit breaker [garble].

Armstrong: Houston, CDR. That's rugged country.

McCandless: Okay. GDC align stars; Vega and Deneb. Over.

McCandless: Okay, 11. Over.

Armstrong: Houston, Eagle.

McCandless: Apollo 11, this is Houston.

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

Collins: Ball number 1 and ball number 2 both right on value.

Evans: Eagle, Houston. Apollo 11, Houston. Say again.

Collins: No, the data should go to the log [garble].
