Apo11o ll

Garbled transmissions.


Collins: EMS Function, Delta-V; set range VHF A. Soon as I get around here, I'll start it. That's going to waste a hell of a lot of gas. Oh, that checks. You're loud and clear in Simplex B, Neil.

McCandless: Roger. Out. (Long Pause)

Aldrin: That wall of that crater looks pasty through the sextant. We haven't got P20 going yet, have we?

Collins: Yes, sir.

Duke: Looking at the world of sports, let's see here. It looks like it's going to be real nice for recovery. [Long pause.]

Aldrin: Yes, 02:25:30. That's it - going to AGS?

Collins: Not in your way?

Armstrong: Roger.

Armstrong: We have - the configuration we have now is, Hydrogen heaters: we got 1 Auto, 2 Off.

Aldrin: We can see it if we look through that thing you have. Over.

Duke: Rog. We copy. Over. Houston. Over.

Collins: Okay.

Aldrin: Hey, Charlie, what's the preliminary outlook for the weather in our recovery area?

Aldrin: Go ahead.

Duke: Roger. Stand by on the angles. [Long pause.]

Collins: Coming on right now.

Aldrin: Okay.

Armstrong: Houston, Apollo 11. [Garble.]

Collins: Mark it. Looks good up here too, Bruce. [Long pause.] You're going to let me land closer to Hawaii too, aren't you? I'm going to go ahead with the tunnel leak check. Thank you, sir.

Armstrong: Well, yes.

Aldrin: Look at that trash. Noun 81 was plus 0.1, plus 1.2, plus 0.5. Even though we're going to use them the other way.

Duke: Roger.

Aldrin: Houston, Apollo 11.

Armstrong: T4, 106:38:07.

Aldrin: Okay. SPS, I love you! Yes.

Aldrin: ROT Control Power, Normal, two of them, AC/DC? " [Long pause.] Take [garble].

PAO: That was Neil Armstrong praising the launch vehicle.

Collins: (Relaying) Eagle, this is Columbia. We're pressing on with the procedure. Rougher than a cob, but I didn't see [garble].

Collins: Go ahead.

Aldrin: Roger. Have you got the - got to the tunnel vent step yet?

Duke: Copy, Apollo 11. Over.

Collins: Beautiful.

Evans: Apollo 11, Houston. Sounds real fine. However, we want the rendezvous radar mode switch in LGC, just as it is on Surface-59. You can go ahead and arm your logic anytime you want to, and we'll give you a Go so that you can get your Pyro Arm at your convenience.

Armstrong: Alright. How about that?

Aldrin: Okay. You didn't touch this lighting?

Armstrong: Okay. 2 feet per second.

Slayton: Roger.

Armstrong: And, Houston, Eagle.

Collins: I'll check Window 3. You want to go back to 229 or what?

Collins: Boy, you're really waiting for that one, aren't you?

Armstrong: Go to Auto Track?

Evans: Roger. Copy that, 11.

Aldrin: [Garble] looking down there [garble] sure looked like it was convex [garble] Neil walked back a little later and it was right smack in the middle [garble]... ...

Armstrong: Is it holding it this time? How do you read (garble)?

Duke: Rog. You're five-by now.

Collins: Thank you, Charlie. All the wives and kids in one piece? For the Earth coming up?

Armstrong: CMC. (Sneeze)

Aldrin: Okay.

PAO: This is Apollo Control.

McCandless: Good. Did you copy my Mark at 114:31?

McCandless: Apollo 11, this is Houston. AOS Carnarvon is at 52:15. Roger. We're not trying to get you all wrapped up in a procedure here. And could you verify that your waste compartment valve is in Vent, there?

Aldrin: What for?

Collins: Yaw 2... Over. TVC Gimbal Drive, Pitch and Yaw to Auto.

Armstrong: Did you get a secondary radiator leak check? You want one?

Duke: Go ahead, 11. Have you deployed the landing gear yet? We copy it. Over. (Pause)

Collins: Go ahead, Houston.

Aldrin: It's coming across now from right to left.

McCandless: Roger. [Pause.] It's supposed to start at 5 plus 03 plus 07, and stop at 5 plus 04 plus 55. You're cutting out. Over. We'll have a look at it.

McCandless: Roger, 11. Over. We have an LOS here. I guess it's turned into night up there really, hasn't it?

Collins: Okay, that ought to almost get it there and, damn, I don't want to see any more than that.

McCandless: I say, I have one for you. Over.

Collins: Okay. Okay.

McCandless: Roger.

Aldrin: Roger. Did you hear that?

Armstrong: Yeah.

McCandless: Okay, 11. Do not monitor Verb 16, Noun 20. Over. Do you have a counter reading for us. They look a little large right now.

McCandless: Go ahead, Columbia. [Pause.]

Armstrong: Okay.

PAO: Mark.

Duke: Hello, Eagle. That's fine. Over.

Duke: Roger. That's a good view of the eight-ball. The new coordinates are 13 degrees, 19 minutes North; 169, 10 minutes West. Over. Houston. [Long pause.] Out.

Aldrin: 8 seconds. Okay.

Aldrin: Roger.

Collins: Okay.

Duke: Hello, Apollo 11. Go. We got you coming home. Over.

Duke: Eagle, Houston. [Long pause.] [Long pause.]

Collins: I've looked... The hatch is installed. Okay.

Duke: Roger, 11. Coming at you with the 130. [Long pause.]

Aldrin: Rog.

Armstrong: Okay. I have to roll.

Armstrong: Okay, at 49,000 feet [15,000 metres], we're supposed to be 65 feet per second [20 m/s] - our little old chart says.

Duke: Rog, Neil. (Long Pause; with intermittent static)

Aldrin: Well, I propose to give myself a little bit of a - a bath, but not to put that damn LCG on tonight.

Aldrin: Roger. (Pause)

Collins: Say again that last? Yes.

Duke: Rog. Correction - Roger, Columbia. [Pause.]

Aldrin: Don't tell that to poor [garble], though (laughter).

Collins: Houston, Columbia. Thank you very much.

Armstrong: Yes, we've lost it.

Aldrin: 100:16.

Aldrin: We got 5337.3 (feet per second horizontal velocity), 32.8 feet per second (vertical velocity), 60,666 (feet altitude). Well, when you compare it with the surrounding areas, why it's - it's pretty reasonable.

McCandless: Apollo 11, Apollo 11, this is Houston. Out. You are Go at 4 minutes.

Armstrong: Roger. 166 - and let me see - and minus 0.81.

Collins: Mark.

Armstrong: That was - That was me picking up some particles of paint that were floating through the air in front of the camera, there. Yaw 2...

Evans: Columbia, Houston. You're Go for Pyro Arm. [Pause.]

Collins: Houston, be advised the visual is Go today.

Armstrong: Stand by.

Duke: Stand by. [Long pause.]
