Aldrin: It's hard to tell at this density and pressure of gas, but comfort level is about the - about the same as the Command Module.
Armstrong: Just from the APS firing, you think?
Aldrin: And, Houston, you have high bit rate with us now, I believe?
Aldrin: Here's this LCG check.
Garriott: 11, Houston. Over.
Aldrin: Okay. (Pause) 1201
Collins: Columbia reading you loud and clear, Houston.
Armstrong: They're at the over [garble]. Apollo 11.
PAO: Two minor problems have been encountered during the count.
Aldrin: Yes, we're through with that now.
Armstrong: [Garble.] Think of Bobby [garble]. You cut out when you were talking about the platform, at something about 52 hours, and after that, we never heard you again. Standby a second. ] Zoom in - it does have a central peak in Schubert Y. Understand. [Pause.] [Pause.] What that change of pitch may mean. Go ahead, Houston. This is equivalent to 13 minutes before ignition, and we're at about 80 degrees east, I guess - 83 degrees east. I don't blame you a bit.
McCandless: Roger. Say again, 11?
Armstrong: We'll have to - have to turn the heaters on tomorrow.
Evans: Roger. Stand by one. Mike, you can go ahead and get as many VHF and sextant marks as you can here in this period of time.
Aldrin: Alright, now.
Evans: Columbia, Houston. Over. [Long pause.]
Evans: Tranquility, Houston. It's got a lot of gas there to burn out, too. Looking great.
Aldrin: Let me record them...
Evans: Apollo 11, Houston. Over. Over. We concur. Copy, Buzz. [Pause.] (Pause)
Collins: AC/DC. This operation is somewhat like the periscope of a submarine. I'll just - I'll just turn this one over and get rid of the water and start all over again. So let's mark on it. 357, okay.
McCandless: Apollo 11 CDR, this is Houston. Over.
Aldrin: Launch Vehicle indicators: GPI to S-II/S-IVB.
Duke: We can read the markings on the instruments for the glycol pressure, quantity, PCO2. One minute to LOS.
Duke: Okay, Mike, what happened is, you know, you were sitting there monitoring Verb 16, Noun 20, and at step 7 you went into Verb 24, Noun 01, and keyed in the address and then Information, Information. It's a magnificent picture. Right after LOS. Over.
Aldrin: Go ahead, Houston. [Long pause.]
Duke: Go ahead, 11. We just decided to delete the O2 fuel cell purge. Over.
Aldrin: (To Houston) (As per ), I'd like to evaluate the various paces that a person can (garbled) traveling on the lunar surface.
Duke: The light is superb! Over.
Aldrin: ...Apollo 11.
Armstrong: We got signal strength.
Duke: Rog. How do you read - normal voice? Rog.
Duke: Roger. [Long pause.]
Aldrin: [Inaudible on air-ground] Houston, Eagle. We're still ahead of the timeline, so take your time.
Aldrin: Let me have a camera.
Aldrin: Let's burn.
Armstrong: (You) got it! Yes, yes.
Aldrin: Okay. What's that PAD say about horizon on the 100-degree...
McCandless: Roger, 11. When you have a free minute, could you give us your onboard readout of N2 tank Bravo, please. Reading you loud and clear. Out.
Collins: All right. Rog.
McCandless: Oh, we were wondering what was new with you up there. Magazine M as in Mike. ) Over.
McCandless: Roger. Out.
Evans: Ah; roger.
Armstrong: Yes, here we go - [garble] doesn't look bad.
Armstrong: The Delta-VC on the EMS - 3.3.
Collins: God damn, that's pretty!
Aldrin: You've got plenty.
Armstrong: The entire surface is getting considerably darker than the surface that we looked at previously when the Sun was quite high above us.
Collins: No, no. Houston, Columbia.
Duke: Hello, Apollo 11. It appears that the...
Armstrong: You could. I'm rolling right.
Collins: How's the weather down there? Go ahead, Houston.
Aldrin: How far out are you, Mike?
Aldrin: All right, let it (garbled)
Duke: Roger. Looks like we're going to have to reinitialate [sic] - reinitialize this PTC. We'd like - The rates are looking pretty good right now on the PTC, but we'd like you to continue holding. Stand by. (Pause)
Armstrong: What's that?
Collins: Verify Spacecraft Control, CMC.
Duke: 11, Houston. Over. I say again that we do not have any lunar surface update - book updates at this time. [Long pause.] Over. The lights are there and the flags because we haven't closed the breakers yet. (Pause)
Duke: Roger, Buzz.
Aldrin: Roger. Go ahead.
Aldrin: That's right. Thank you. ...
Duke: Stand by. Roger.
Collins: [Garble] going right down the [garble] and it sure has been nice.
Collins: We think you're close, but no cigar.
Armstrong: Yes, but I hate to [garble]; will you get [garble]?
Armstrong: We might make it in time.
Aldrin: Can't go any further. Over. As a matter of fact, I'll put yours on the right.
Collins: Think it's the PU shift? Is that for Columbia?
Armstrong: No, wait.
Collins: It doesn't matter, they're all good. I don't mind a bit. [Pause.] Are you ready to go on with this PTC? [Long pause.]
Armstrong: Roger. Go ahead, Houston.
Lovell: I understand that it got a little warm during the day and cooled down a little bit when you put the shades up, but you're still a little bit warm.
PAO: This is Apollo Control, Houston.
Collins: Thank you.
Duke: Roger, Eagle. Correction, the Direct O2.
Aldrin: Got them both? Affirmative.
McCandless: Apollo 11, this is Houston. And that puts it in the light side? Over.
Collins: Okay. Okay.
Aldrin: Hey, Mike.
Armstrong: Okay, it's at Standby.
Duke: Roger. Can't quite make out who that head is.
Duke: Is that Buzz holding your cue cards for you? Out.
Duke: Roger. Over. Over.
Aldrin: Sounds good, Mike.
Collins: Every flight has to have some disadvantages, I guess. I'm on Omni Charlie. I don't know who had that one - Neil, did you have that one? Copy down a bunch of PADs and then you got your RCS hot-fire.
Armstrong: Now, look. (Pause) Houston, this is Tranquility. (Long Pause)
Collins: Ready to copy. AOS is going to be - well, let's see - 82:30 - about 15 minutes from now.
Armstrong: That's the wrong time, right?
