Garbled transmissions.


Air Boss: And Hornet, this is Air Boss.

Photo 1: This is Photo 1.

Air boss: Air Boss. Stand - Stand by, Hornet.

Photo 1: This is Photo 1. [Garble].

Hornet: Roger.

Hornet: Hornet, Roger.

Swim: Swim 1 has [garble] contact, bearing 150, holding [garble] 190.

Swim: Swim 1 has [garble] contact, bearing 150, holding [garble] 190. [Garble]. This is Swim One, Apollo 11.

Armstrong: What?

Duke: Roger. Stand by one, Buzz. Over.

Aldrin: You want to end up with that window - opposite his right window so you don't want to roll right.

Duke: That's affirmative. And with that situation, the DAP - the vehicle will roll - will maneuver, rather, at a rate that is loaded in, which was three-tenths plus four-tenths rate, and it will limit at four-tenths above the desired rate, so - that is if we have a large enough angle between the desired and the actual, which we did. [Pause.] Stand by, Buzz.

Aldrin: Okay. ... Rotation Control Power, Direct, two of them, Off?

Evans: Eagle, Houston. Over.

Evans: Eagle, Houston. The computer is yours, you can go to Block anytime.

Armstrong: Burn time is 05:20.

McCandless: Roger, Columbia. We're showing you...

Collins: Sure. Can you explain that?

Armstrong: Go ahead.

Aldrin: Not where the waste management's concerned.

Armstrong: (Garbled) PGNS radar circuit breaker's open. That right?

PAO: Network controller says we have Acquisition Of Signal from the Command Module.

Aldrin: Yes, you've done that. You didn't touch this lighting? Whew! Yes.

onboard): Pitching over. No flags. DPS (Descent Propulsion System, pronounced 'dips') is good. Master Arm coming on.

onboard): Okay.

Evans: Roger. We copy. Standing by. (Pause)

Aldrin: Verify GPI returns to zero, zero.

Aldrin: Okay.

Duke: Roger. We were seeing some - believe it or not, we were seeing some funnies on the Eagle's rendezvous radar...

Collins: What?

Aldrin: What - what'd it say...

Collins: Okay.

Collins: Okay.

Collins: It's out this way.

PAO: Hornet reports spacecraft right on target point. And we are starting to get a picture back again. The Hornet now estimates they are 4 and three-quarters miles away from the spacecraft.

Aldrin: EDS Power, you got On?

Collins: Okay. It looks like that LM just wants to head down towards the surface, is all.

Duke: Roger. Over. Over.

Collins: Okay. We appreciate it.

McCandless: Houston.

Armstrong: I think those are the tunnel lights.

Duke: The system really looks good to us.

Aldrin: [Inaudible on air-ground] Houston, Eagle.

Aldrin: Okay.

Armstrong: X and - 0.2.

Duke: 11, Houston. Please give us a count. Over. We want 10254.

Duke: Thank you, sir. Repeat, do not do the gimbal trim. PDI PAD: TIG 102:33:04.36; 09:50, minus 00021; 182, 287, 000; plus 56919. Roger.

Collins: Roger.

Armstrong: Okay? They said that Borman's... I thought I made it pretty clear.

Aldrin: Mike, let us know how you're coming up there now and then.

Collins: Okay, Houston. Okay.

McCandless: Okay. Over.

Collins: You were going to make me do that in another 45 minutes anyway.

Duke: Roger.

Collins: Roger.

Aldrin: I caught up - I caught up for a short while, but [garble]. Yes, it's coming down beautifully.

Collins: Is this Ken? How's everything going?

McCandless: Roger.

Collins: Thank you. Thank you. Looks like the setting on the Auto thing is such that it just runs a little cold.

Collins: Okay, lights went out - except for all those radioactive ones in there. This crapping thing - [garble] set on f:4 or 5.6; that's probably about right. Glad to hear it.

Collins: Okay. Thank you.

Armstrong: Copy.

Aldrin: Roger. It got more - more brown - with increasing Sun angle.

Aldrin: Okay, now...

Aldrin: Rog.

Aldrin: Good to hear it.

McCandless: Stand by a minute.

Collins: Hello, Moon. Houston, Apollo 11.

Collins: Did you get any usable pictures out of MILA on that first pass? [Garble].

Armstrong: That'll be fine.

McCandless: Roger. This is with the new REFSMMAT, Buzz.

McCandless: Roger. Roger.

Collins: Understand, and note has been made in my checklist. Okay...

Collins: Yes. We recalled the program.

Armstrong: Okay.

Collins: Mark it. Delta-V Thrust A and B are Off... When you get everything you need off the downlink, let me know and I'll proceed.

Armstrong: Okay, that should be gray...

Collins: Okay, I'm going to [garble] camera out of its way.

McCandless: Okay. Roger.

Collins: Yes. Yes.

Armstrong: Coming up on 04:30.

Aldrin: Man, I'm not going to look at them. Over.

Armstrong: Not much. Roger.

Collins: I didn't know [garble] radio. And in just a second here, I'll go to Enter and get a 51 and mark on it. Okay. (Long Pause) Okay. I was just wondering how everything is going at the home front. [Pause.] Nice ride.

Armstrong: Go ahead. Okay, and I got PADs, need to extend the probe, and do an SM RCS hotfire.

Aldrin: Okay. Over. EMS Function to Off, we got that [garble]? I'm in the center now. And we'd like you in - CSM in mid-deadband Att Hold. (Garbled) In other words, you have to cross your foot over to stay underneath where your center-of-mass is. That window's no good, I'm afraid. Thank you.

Armstrong: No, we aren't that - confident.

Collins: Well, Mattingly assured me that I was going to have a circular velocity versus altitude, you know, when they get me at 100 miles on the other side? Is anybody missing a ballpoint pen?

Duke: Hello, Apollo 11.

Duke: Go ahead, 11. Next three lines are NA. SPAN is concerned that our present procedure as shown in the checklist does not really flow glycol through the radiator, and it - They want to verify that we do not have a plugged secondary radiator. [Long pause.]

Duke: Hello, Apollo 11. Over. We're working on it. Over.

Armstrong: Go ahead.

Collins: Roger, Houston. I just want to get my... ] Roger. [Garble].

Collins: Mark, Logic 1. You got it. You mean after I went to all this work of cranking those numbers in you're going to drive back to zero?

Armstrong: Okay.

Collins: Okay.

Collins: It is now. Then in the meantime I'll just go ahead and maneuver to yours. How do you read? We're about to torque them. Is that the one I just completed or do you want a pair of them back to back?

Armstrong: Right - that's [garble]. It's too late for sunrise, anyway.

McCandless: Roger. (Long Pause) Buzz, this is Houston. Over.
