McCandless: Apollo 11, this is Houston.
Collins: Good. Thank you. Is that affirmative? 2 minutes prior, 100-degree line.
McCandless: Roger. Reading you the same. We're still working on the problem, and we'll let you have a more complete diagnosis on it in a little while.
Aldrin: About half. I think you'll agree that some of these craters that you're seeing in the picture now are really accentuated by the lengthening of the shadows as they approach the terminator.
Evans: Roger. Midcourse number 4 is not required. [Long pause.] [Pause.]
Aldrin: Roger. I - I thought maybe that Noun 20 was one of those that you could never load from the DSKY, and that still may be. Are you picking up our signals okay?
McCandless: Apollo 11, this is Houston. Over.
Armstrong: We had a lot of help down there.
Collins: All I'm doing is waiting for - the time.
Collins: Right. So, there isn't any point in saving the other one.
Collins: Yes. Over.
Collins: I'll bet you [garble] likes this. A geologist up here would just go crazy.
Duke: 11, Houston. [Long pause.]
Armstrong: Okay. Pitch 165, yaw 68.
McCandless: Are you wide open on the f-stop at this time? Over.
Collins: Mark it. Why in the hell didn't I do that? I've got it in the sextant now, and I'm about to split the image and Mark.
Aldrin: No, I'm not Auto. Not at this point, no.
Collins: We did that.
McCandless: Roger. Ullage two jets, 16 seconds, undocked. You're way down in the noise level. [Long pause.]
Armstrong: Isn't it fine? Should I be going [garble]?
Collins: Okay. I assume Houston didn't play yesterday.
Aldrin: Okay. It's coming across now from right to left.
Collins: Okay. [Pause.]
Evans: Roger, Columbia. And, Tranquility, I have a LM consumables update for you.
Evans: Roger. We copy. Midcourse number 4 is not required. The computer is yours, you can go to Block anytime. That's correct.
Aldrin: And the radiation is as follows: CDR, 11012; CMP, 10013; LMP, 09015. ... it's, I think, working okay.
Duke: Stand by. We need to terminate Battery B charge at this time, and also, the weather is clobbering in at our targeted landing point due to scattered thunderstorms. We haven't picked him up yet. [Long pause.]
Collins: Rotational Hand Controller, number 2, is Armed. Let's invent a new home for it because that old home is full of that smelly old urine bag.
Garriot: 11, Roger. Go ahead.
Collins: I'm staying in P22 here a second just to record the Noun 89 and then I'll Verb 34. Mode, Standby...EMS Mode, Standby.
Collins: It's on the - it's printed - - [Pause.] I think the reason is in having 16 20 on the DSKY during the subsequent entries, or at least that's one possibility.
Aldrin: (Laughter) [Garble]
Collins: Oh, at about 5½ minutes. You're broken up.
Armstrong: Loud and clear.
Collins: Houston, Apollo 11.
Duke: That is negative. Over. We don't see anybody staring back at us, though. [Long pause.]
onboard): Okay, we went by the three-minute point early.
onboard): Pretty rocky area.
Aldrin: No. Standing by to copy.
McCandless: Roger. And we're through with the uplink; the computer is yours. [No answer.] Over.
Collins: Think it's the PU shift?
Aldrin: Houston, Eagle.
Collins: Armstrong says it's the hatch and - if we leave the probe and drogue there, we'll save us some time tomorrow. How about right now? That'll keep those geologists jumping for years.
Collins/Aldrin: Go ahead, Houston.
Armstrong: I've got to - look at the... Go ahead.
Collins: Delta-V Thrust, Normal, A, is On. Bring the [garble] back.
Aldrin: Okay. Over.
Armstrong: Mark it. We may...
Duke: That's affirmative. Stand by.
Aldrin: Okay. Thank you [Long pause.]
Armstrong: I get - You get 11154, 20792, 00230. Main Bus Ties: AC, Off; DC, Off.
Aldrin: Okay. We're pretty close to 000. Got it.
Collins: That'd be nice. Number 4.
Armstrong: How far would you say I am, Buzz?
Duke: Seven minutes. Over. Noun 81: 32 - correction, plus 3201.1, plus 0681.8, minus 0265.0; 181, 054, 014. Over.
Armstrong: Oh, I got them.
Aldrin: What are your dosimeters reading?
Collins: Of what? 80:11... And after you get it all set up, check that f-stop again because it slides and slips off with very little twist. ] Eagle, Tell them [garble] loud and clear since AOS [garble]. Auto verified.
Evans: Columbia, Houston. We copy and we agree. Go.
Collins: EMS Function, Off, verify. This data is increasing toward my desired of 315; and I'll let the hand controller alone here, and I'll bet you it reverses itself. Charge Battery A, huh?
Duke: 11, Houston. (Long Pause)
Collins: Hey, how about holding this for just a little bit? Okay.
Duke: We think you might have some more chlorine up in A1. [Pause.]
Duke: Roger. Over. Over.
Armstrong: That wasn't - bad at all. That yaw 270 and pitch 3 - What was the pitch?
Evans: Roger. The will lock on at about 25 degrees elevation above the horizon. We copy. Looks like you're really sawing them away.
Collins: Houston, Apollo 11.
McCandless: Yes, it did.
Armstrong: Can you give us a couple of pointing angles? How do you read on VHF-A?
Collins: Limit Cycle, Off.
Duke: We can still see the Earth through the left window, and it appears that we can see a floodlight off to the left, either that or some Sun shafting through the hatch window. We'd like you to select aft Omni now. Over. Over.
Collins: Come on now, Buzz, don't refer to them as big mothers. We're rolling over at a very slow rate.
Aldrin: Roger. Over. Neil, what did you do with the - [garble] camera back sight ?
Armstrong: Yes, I guess it'll take us another - 6 minutes or something like that. Okay.
Aldrin: I had them out, kind of floating around back here.
Aldrin: (Garbled) Plus 6 seconds, plus 6.
Duke: That's affirmative.
Aldrin: Moving in. Over. Understand Alpha and Bravo. And, also, I noticed when I took the bit off that the material was quite well packed, a good bit darker, and the way it adhered to the core tube gave me the distinct impression of being moist. It's screwed up in here anyway.
Collins: You're in pretty good.
Duke: Roger. [Pause.]
Aldrin: A valves only.
Collins: Go ahead.
Armstrong: It flies good, though.
Collins: Okay, now I - I'm going to verify with the third star, and let's see what that star's going to be.
McCandless: Okay. Over.
Collins: It's off.
