Apo11o ll

Garbled transmissions.

McCandless: Okay, Columbia. And that's for star 01?

Armstrong: Okay, that should be gray...

Aldrin: Would you like us to pick another antenna?

Armstrong: [Garble.]

PAO: Mark.

Recovery: Roger.

Photo 1: This is Photo One. Over.

Armstrong: ...shut down a little early.

Armstrong: Yes? Apollo 11.

Armstrong: Focus is on infinity. Get the [garble], Buzz.

McCandless: Roger. We've successfully re-acquired high-gain antenna. Out.

Aldrin: Okay.

Evans: Roger. And this will be...In other words, P57, P22, and then to press on with the checklist.

onboard): And I have the window. Looks good!

onboard): (Garbled)'s holding.

Aldrin: Copy. Two-jet ullage, 16 seconds. Can you hand me that purse and the - that bag of mine - and the checklist?

Collins: Oh, I don't know. High Gain Antenna; pitch, plus 14 and yaw, 263. Far as I'm concerned, one's like another. ATT Deadband, Max.

Duke: Roger.

Collins: I guess what I'm doing, I should do with the paper towels. Go ahead with the 130 update.

Collins: You mean after I went to all this work of cranking those numbers in you're going to drive back to zero? 11.

Duke: Rog. Over.

Duke: You need more practice. I can imagine.

Collins: Okay, stand by.

Aldrin: Okay. You'll have to pay out all the LEC. Incidentally, those shafts and trunnions just missed pointing at the world.

Collins: Okay.

Aldrin: Okay. We're still 0.2 behind.

Armstrong: Mark it.

Collins: Well, don't blame the 11-point drop on us, anyway.

McCandless: Apollo 11, this is Houston. Following the President's stay aboard the Hornet, he will depart for his tour of Asia and scheduled visit to Romania. [Pause.]

Collins: Set GPI trim.

Lovell: Have the water temperatures been good? [Long pause.] Roll for the Comm situation: have S-band antenna Omni A in Bravo, S-band antenna Omni to Omni, High Gain Track to Manual, and the pitch is minus 50 and yaw is 270. 11, Houston.

Collins: They daily post us.

McCandless: Not that we've seen.

Collins: Neil, when you get a hand, would you push that little god damn valve down to Dump? Would you say again, please? We do likewise.

Aldrin: Roger. Hear that, too, huh?

Collins: Buzz, you don't see the Hasselblad anywhere down below?

Collins: I'm not sure we should be shooting this - what we're shooting at or one point set.

Armstrong: Those guys down there in the trench did a pretty good job this flight. You got it.

Aldrin: S what?

Armstrong: ... Roger, Houston.

Armstrong: Okay. Roger.

Duke: Stand by.

Duke: Houston copies. Over. Go ahead.

Duke: Roger, Mike. [Pause.] [Pause.]

Aldrin: I was going to mark on 37, and that's Nunki; 30 and 37?

Armstrong: We don't want them to give up yet, though.

Aldrin: [Garble] take that. Yes, I think... would be something...

Armstrong: Ah yeah.

Collins: Yeah.

Armstrong: Hey, Mike, you transmitting on B?

Duke: Rog, 11. Stand by. We're reading you about three-by. Over. Over. With you. Roger.

Collins: Rog. ] [Garbled. Understand plus 00523 and plus 11710. It'd be nice to have company. I'm not sure Eagle sent it or not.

Armstrong: Going to A. I'm in A.

Aldrin: Let's see, what's tearing me up is we're going to orb-rate on this damn booster, and the rate is very evident. [Long pause.]

Collins: Roger.

Armstrong: [Garble.] Yes, yes.

Armstrong: Okay, Buzz, we ready to bring down the ( ) camera?

Aldrin: Okay.

Armstrong: That's more than we've ever had in the simulator, isn't it? I'm going to dump the waste water. I've got nothing but static.

Collins: Say, you guys, [Garble] anything you want to do? Could you explain that one?

Armstrong: All set.

Comm: Goldstone, Houston.

Aldrin: (Garbled) This one's in.

Duke: Rog. AOS, 102:16. Over. We'll have them look into it, and see if they can suggest anything. Over. We're ready to spin it up. [Pause.]

Aldrin: Go ahead, Houston. Don't forget to remind me of that.

onboard): Roger, about 3 seconds long.

Aldrin: Okay. (Pause) Yes.

Aldrin: Okay, how about cranking the event timer to 51:00, then? Maybe it was loaded just for the short period of time, and then when the counters read the - the gimbal angles, why they changed it back to what they actually are. Over. You still got him?

Collins: Another Master Alarm coming.

Aldrin: No. And we're looking forward to Midcourse Correction 5 at about 5 feet per second at the nominal time. Thank you.

Armstrong: You got double lines?

Collins: You better believe.

Evans: And this is your friendly backup CMP. [Pause.]

Aldrin: I hope I took the thing apart correctly.

SC: (Sound of train)

Collins: Well, we haven't even done it yet.

Armstrong: Okay, I'm at the...(Listens)

McCandless: Tranquility, this is Houston. We're recommending an f-stop of 2.8, and we'd like to get a sequence of time exposures. If you're still up, AOS next time around will be 114:04. Have you used the monocular on this? [Pause.]

Collins: Yes. I'll yell cut-off at that time.

Duke: Sounds like Plastic Man to me. (Long Pause) Say again your T4 copy. We're wondering who's on horn. Over.

Aldrin: Watch it.

McCandless: Roger. [Long pause.] As we understand you, you were looking in the vicinity of Papa 7 to November 8. They'll hang in there for about another 47 hours or so.

Armstrong: Mark it.

Aldrin: It's coming down, but it's... The is closed and latched, (pause) and verified secured. Are those angles for after the maneuver that Columbia is going to make or are they for right now? Over.

Aldrin: Okay.

Armstrong: Okay. If you get too far over here, we may have to watch our pitch angle. Yes, I do.

Armstrong: About to get started on the P52 here pretty soon.

Collins: Okay. This is... Rog. Radiation 100 point 16. [Long pause.] [Long pause.] [Pause.]

Duke: Roger. [Pause.] You can exit P47.

Duke: Roger. [Pause.] Stand by for my Mark.

Aldrin: Okay.

Armstrong: It went to Rate - Okay, I see an SLA panel going out.

Aldrin: There it is, it's coming up! (Pause)

Collins: Here we go... We just shut all four off, and we got a questionable indication on the ECS on pitch 1. Disregard. I - I think, just as long it looks like it's out and - the window, that's the main thing. You through in the LM?

Collins: SPS, 12 of them.

Collins: Roger, Charlie.

McCandless: Let's see. [Long pause.]

Aldrin: Ready?

Armstrong: My 's out.
