[We will maintain separate transcripts for CM and LM during this frontside pass on Rev 12. The CM transcript with Ken Mattingly in Casper and Henry Hartsfield as CapCom comes first. The LM transcript starts here.]

096 17 24 Hartsfield: Casper, Houston. How do you read?

096 17 32 Mattingly: Loud and clear, and let me clean up some things, Hank, and I'll be with you in just a minute.

096 17 35 Hartsfield: Okay.

096 18 49 Duke (LM comm): Hey, Ken.

096 18 52 Mattingly: Go ahead, Orion.

096 18 53 Duke (LM comm): Okay, look up over my - our right side and look at that antenna, the - the steerable, and see how it - it's moving. I'm going to move it in pitch, then in yaw. Over.

096 19 05 Mattingly: Okay, on your right side. Okay: I got it, and it's moving in - It looks like a combination now. It's moving though. It's oscillating at this time.

096 19 17 Duke (LM): Okay, it should be stable

096 19 XX Mattingly: Now it's steady.

096 23 53 Hartsfield: Ken, your T2 time is good.

096 23 58 Mattingly: Okay, Hank. I'm trying to get things all straightened up.

096 30 36 Hartsfield: Casper, Omni Charlie.

096 33 20 Mattingly: Okay. Did you read?

096 33 23 Hartsfield: Casper, did you call?

096 34 56 Mattingly: Houston, can you read Casper?

096 34 59 Hartsfield: Hello, Casper, this is Houston. I'm reading you. There is a little bit of noise in the background, Ken, but I'm reading you okay.

096 35 08 Mattingly: Okay. I understand that my T2 time is good.

096 35 17 Hartsfield: That is affirmative.

096 35 21 Mattingly: Okay. It looks like my maneuver is going to get me there about - right now.

096 35 31 Hartsfield: Just as predicted, huh?

096 35 41 Mattingly: Amazing machine, isn't it?

096 35 43 Hartsfield: That's pretty neat.

096 38 52 Hartsfield: Casper, R-3 should be minus 00014.

096 39 00 Mattingly: Yeah, I got out of here roll, 15; pitch, 296; 000. Is that not correct?

096 39 08 Hartsfield: Roger. I was looking at your Noun 89 there and comparing it with the value in the pad there.

096 39 20 Mattingly: Oh! Thank you very much. Thank you. You've got good eyes.

096 42 40 Mattingly: It's surprising, Hank, how great things are just looking through the telescope and I can't spend much time over here with the naked eye [garble].

096 42 51 Hartsfield: Roger.

096 42 52 Mattingly: The things I'm looking at now are really not that far from the terminator.

096 43 46 Hartsfield: Casper, you're coming on ten seconds to T1 .

096 43 54 Mattingly: Thank you, sir.

096 44 12 Mattingly: And we're back in the running.

096 44 19 Hartsfield: Roger. Coming up on T2.

096 44 25 Mattingly: Okay.

096 44 42 Hartsfield: I told you wrong on that, Ken. It's a little while to go yet.

096 45 20 Hartsfield: Okay, Casper, you're coming up on T2 now in about ten seconds.

096 48 24 Mattingly: Orion, Casper. Are you ready for rendezvous radar VHF range check?

096 49 58 Hartsfield: Casper, Houston. If you'll give us Accept, we'll up-link your state vector and target load.

096 50 48 Mattingly: Okay. You've got it.

096 51 12 Hartsfield: Casper, Houston. We'd like to go on and get the Circ Pad up to you.

096 51 24 Mattingly: Give me about 30 seconds, Hank, and I'll give you a call.

096 51 27 Hartsfield: Wilco.

096 52 25 Mattingly: Okay, Hank. I'm ready.

096 52 28 Hartsfield: Roger. Circ, SPS/G&N; 39293; plus 0.49, plus 1.22; 097:40:17.16; plus 0068.1, minus all zips, minus 0058.0; 000, 142, 358; Noun 44, 0067.4, plus 0051.6; 0089.5, 0:05, 0078.0. The rest of the pad is NA. Set stars, Sirius, Rigel; 131, 071, 014. Two jets, 16 seconds; quads Bravo and Delta. End of pad, and the computer is yours.

096 54 12 Mattingly: Okay. Thank you very much, Hank. I'll read it back to you in just a second. Okay, and circ, SPS/G&N; 39293; plus 0.49, plus 1.22; 097:40:17.16; plus 0068.1, all zips, minus 0058.0; 000, 142, 358; 0067.4, plus 0051.6; 0089.5, 0:05, 0078.0. Sirius and Rigel; 131, 071, 014. Two jets, 16 seconds; quads Bravo and Delta. Over.

096 55 00 Hartsfield: Good readback, Ken, and I'll give you the abort pads after you do your P52.

096 55 07 Mattingly: Okay. Yeah, let's get to work on these first. Thank you.

096 55 43 Mattingly: Hank, it looks like we made a little discrepancy here in the way it is now. It shows we crossed out the Verb 48 at 97:15 to get us a 10101 because we were all ready there, I thought. And that doesn't look like the case. I guess we're gonna catch it up here after the burn. It is probably okay in its present form? Is that correct?

096 56 08 Hartsfield: That's affirmative. We went to 10102 back at 96:34, and we crossed out the one at 97:15, and we figured that same DAP, and it would hold you through the burn, and then we'll go to the new DAP after the burn.

096 56 29 Mattingly: Okay. Thank you.

096 56 30 Hartsfield: The reason is being - is because we do have 509 in there. We can't do another DAP with it running.

096 56 39 Mattingly: Roger. Understand that. Thank you, sir.

096 56 43 Mattingly: Just want to make sure with all the changes around in this 509 that we hadn't overlooked one.

096 56 47 Hartsfield: Roger.

097 00 19 Mattingly: Houston, what do you say we pass the GDC align for the COAS calibration maneuver and get back on the time line?

097 00 46 Hartsfield: That's a good plan, Ken. We concur.

097 00 53 Mattingly: Okay. Thank you.

097 04 35 Hartsfield: Casper, while you're maneuvering there, would you want to copy the Abort Pad?

097 04 46 Mattingly: All set.

097 04 49 Hartsfield: Okay. Echo, 098:47 all zips; Foxtrot, plus 0102.3, all zips, minus 0050.0; Golf, 099:35 all zips; Hotel, 101:22:15.00; India, 098:35:04.68; Juliet, 101:22:15.00; Kilo 103:21 all zips; Lima, 098:59:29.03; Mike, 105:19:45.00; November, 100:42:42.86. End of pad.

097 06 30 Mattingly: That was a super reading, Hank. I'll read back. Echo, 098:47:0.00; plus 0102.3, all zips, minus 0050.0; Golf, 099:35 all zips; Hotel, 101:22:15.00; India, 098:35:04.68; 101:22:15.00; Kilo, 103:21 all zips; Lima, 098:59:29.03; 105:19:45.00; 100:42:42.86. Over.

097 07 12 Hartsfield: Good readback, Ken.

097 08 33 Hartsfield: And, Casper, for your information, PIPAs and AGS look good.

097 08 42 Mattingly: All righty.

097 12 18 Mattingly: Orion, Casper.

097 12 45 Mattingly: Orion, Casper. Orion, Casper.

097 12 57 Mattingly: Roger. I take it we've deleted the rendezvous radar check. Is that good? I'm asking the question. Did we delete the...

097 14 05 Hartsfield: Casper, a preliminary look at your tracking data looks real good.

097 14 16 Mattingly: Okay. Good. I hope it is.

097 18 38 Hartsfield: Casper, Houston. We have a Go for circ. And, as a little reminder there, don't forget to terminate the EMP after the burn.

097 18 50 Mattingly: Okay; the EMP will be terminated after the gimbal drive check. Is that affirmative?

097 18 56 Hartsfield: That's affirmative.

097 19 02 Mattingly: All righty. Thank you, sir.

097 20 41 Hartsfield: Casper, Houston. We're about two minutes from LOS.

097 20 48 Mattingly: Okay, Hank. Thank you, sir.

[Casper's communications restart here after LOS, now starting Orion's communications from AOS]

096 17 04 Irwin: Orion, this is Houston. How do you read?

096 17 09 Duke (LM): Roger. five by, Jim, and we're sailing free.

096 17 16 Irwin: Roger.

096 17 23 Duke (LM): Okay, Jim. It was a little rushed, but we got it done. The only thing bad is that I got a pack full of orange juice.

096 17 32 Irwin: Okay, we copy, and we'd like you to go through another procedure here to get the S-Band locked up if you're - ready to make - take a few notes?

096 17 16 Duke (LM): Tell him to stan- stand by one.

096 17 48 Young (LM): Stand by one, Jim.

096 17 49 Duke (LM): Okay, we're on hot mike still, John.

096 18 04 Duke (LM): He told us to go ahead.

096 18 06 Young (LM): Okay, Jim; go ahead.

096 18 07 Irwin: Roger. We wanted to - you to put the steerable at Pitch, minus 75, and Yaw at minus 12. In other words, the stowed position. So Track Mode, Slew, wait 30 seconds, and then go Pitch of plus 63, Yaw of minus 32, and antenna S-Band to Slew and proceed with normal acquisition. Over.

096 18 38 Duke (LM): O - Okay we copy.

096 18 47 Irwin: And, Orion, this is Houston. We're...

096 18 49 Duke (LM): Hey, Ken.

096 18 51 Mattingly (CM comm): Go ahead, Orion.

096 18 53 Duke (LM): Okay, look up over my - our right side and look at that antenna, the - the steerable, and see how it - it's moving. I'm going to move it in pitch, then in yaw. Over.

096 19 01 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay. On your right side. Okay, I 'got it, and it's moving in - looks like a combination now. It's moving, though; it's oscillating at this time.

096 19 15 Irwin: And, Orion, this is Houston. We'd like to...

096 19 17 Duke (LM): Okay, it should be stable

096 19 18 Mattingly (CM comm): Now it's steady.

096 19 19 Irwin: ...find out what your RCS configuration is at the present time.

096 19 25 Duke (LM): Okay, Jim, we have got...

096 19 26 Young (LM): System A and B are Open, Crossfeed is Closed, and the Ascent Feed's been terminated.

096 19 37 Irwin: Roger; we'd like you to use System A just as long as possible. Over.

099 19 48 Young (LM): Okay, System A is - System A is now Open, Crossfeed is Open, and System B is Closed.

096 20 07 Irwin: And, Orion, have you loaded the AGS abort constants; yet ?

096 20 11 Duke (LM): Negative. We don't have...

096 20 15 Young (LM): That's negative. Over.

096 20 17 Irwin: Okay, understand negative.

096 20 18 Duke (LM): We don't have the AGS up yet, Jim.

096 20 19 Irwin: Okay, understand negative.

096 20 21 Duke (LM onboard): That's affirmative.

096 20 23 Irwin: Roger; because when you do load those constants, we want you to load nominal values from the data card.

096 20 33 Duke (LM): Okay.

096 20 32 Young (LM onboard): Stabilization Control, Engine Arm, closed.

096 20 35 Young (LM): Okay, we're going ahead with the DPS throttle check, Jim.

096 20 45 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, you do that while I get the...

096 20 46 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

096 20 43 Irwin: Okay, and, if this S-band procedure doesn't work for us, we're going to ask you to maneuver to an FDAI attitude, where the - the yaw angle will not have to change and we'll see if we can lock up in that attitude.

096 21 01 Young (LM): Roger. I understand.

096 20 59 Young (LM onboard): Okay, DPS throttle check.

096 21 10 Young (LM): What you got to do, Charlie - You are all wet. Here, get the thing back away from you.

096 21 11 Duke (LM onboard): I'm...

096 21 12 Young (LM onboard): I got - I got it now.

096 21 19 Duke (LM onboard): Now, give - why don't you get me - get me a towel here.

096 21 26 Young (LM onboard): Okay. Charlie?

096 21 36 Young (LM onboard): Engine Arm to close.

096 21 40 Duke (LM): Okay, Houston. Houston, how do you read on the steerable?

096 21 43 Young (LM onboard): Give the Engine Arm.

096 21 47 Duke (LM onboard): Do what?

096 21 48 Young (LM onboard): Engine Arm breaker - there you go.

096 21 50 Duke (LM onboard): Got it.

096 21 53 Duke (LM): Okay, Houston, back on the aft omni. How do you read?

096 21 59 Young (LM onboard): Engine Arm to Descent.

096 22 06 Duke (LM): Houston, on the aft omni. How do you read?

096 22 09 Young (LM onboard): Descent Reg light is on. TTOAs to min...

096 22 10 Irwin: Orion, this is Houston. We'd like you to proceed now with this attitude maneuver, and I'll give you FDAI angles and the steerable angles.

096 22 21 Duke (LM): Go ahead.

096 22 23 Irwin: Okay, the FDAI is Roll, 000; Pitch, 053; Yaw, 000; and the steerable angles: Pitch, plus 26; Yaw, minus 12. Over.

096 22 43 Duke (LM): Copy. 000, 053, 000; Pitch, 26; Yaw, minus 12.

096 22 53 Irwin: Roger.

096 22 55 Duke (LM): Okay, John.

096 22 57 Young (LM onboard): Try them again.

096 22 58 Duke (LM onboard): Okay.

096 23 00 Young (LM): Okay, Houston, we're running through the DPS throttle check. I have 12, 51, and 100. Charlie's got 13 - 51, and 100.

096 23 16 Duke (LM onboard): Feels good. Looks bad. Darn thing.

096 23 30 Young (LM onboard): Engine Arm is Off.

096 23 31 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, Jim...

096 23 32 Young (LM onboard): Cycle the CWEA...

096 23 33 Duke (LM onboard): Wait - wait a minute.

096 23 34 Young (LM onboard): ...Descent. Eng stop, reset.

096 23 36 Irwin: Orion, the DPS throttle check looks good.

096 23 41 Duke (LM): Okay, Jim, I have some Noun 20s for you if you're ready to copy.

096 23 43 Young (LM onboard): [Garble] Auto and Cdr. TTCAs, both, to Jets, Charlie. Get yours to Jet.

096 23 52 Irwin: Roger; go ahead on the Noun 20s.

096 23 57 Duke (LM): Okay; for the Lunar Module, Orion. Orion, we've got plus 29603, plus 28563, plus 35951. For the Command Module, Casper, plus 00002...

096 24 21 Irwin: Orion, go Forward omni.

096 24 22 Duke (LM): ...plus 10556.

096 24 26 Young (LM onboard): I get a 75.

096 24 28 Duke (LM onboard): How do you read Forward omni? You got a - Start your pitch maneuver, John.

096 24 35 Young (LM onboard): To where?

096 24 40 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, to 053.

096 24 50 Duke (LM): Okay, Jim. How do you read now?

096 24 53 Irwin: Well, there's still excessive noise down here. Give me the Command Module numbers again.

096 25 09 Duke (LM): Okay, we're - How do you read now? We're on the Forward omni.

096 25 18 Irwin: I can just barely read you, Charlie.

096 25 26 Duke (LM): Okay, we'll read you out - on the Noun 20 for the Command Module. Four balls 4, plus 10556, plus 00045; that time was at 96: 02: 20. Over.

096 25 26 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, we'll read you out - on the Noun 20s for the Command Module. Plus four balls 4, plus 105.56, plus 000.45. That time was at 96:02:20. Over. Okay, we there?

096 25 58 Young (LM onboard): No. What do you want? 05 -

096 26 00 Duke (LM onboard): 053.

096 26 02 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

096 26 04 Young (LM onboard): That 0007

096 26 05 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah.

096 26 07 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

096 26 26 Irwin: Orion, this is Houston. We hope you're at about the attitude. We'd like you to go to an acquisition here.

096 26 35 Duke (LM): Okay, we're in attitude and we're going to give you the steerable.

096 27 06 Young (LM onboard): Give me a shot of cold water, Charlie.

096 27 18 Young (LM onboard): That's enough.

096 27 23 Duke (LM): Okay, Jim. How do you read me on the Forward omni? Over.

096 27 36 Irwin: Charlie, I just barely read you on the Forward omni.

096 27 40 Duke (LM onboard): Okay.

096 27 41 Young (LM onboard): You're loud and clear down there, Jim,

096 27 44 Duke (LM onboard): Be advised, Houston, that when I select - I've got the angles set in: a plus 26; Yaw, minus 12. We are in attitude, and when I select S-Band to Slew, the signal strength Just slowly drifts off. Over.

096 28 21 Irwin: Orion, this is Houston. Select Primary Transmitter Receiver.

096 28 34 Young (LM onboard): 000, 53, huh, Charlie?

096 28 35 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah.

096 28 36 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

096 28 37 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, Jim. How do you read on the Primary Transceiver?

096 28 40 Young (LM onboard): Okay, Houston. Can we go through the DPS throttle check now?

096 28 46 Duke (LM onboard): Just did that.

096 28 48 Young (LM onboard): I mean the DPS pressurization check.

096 29 05 Duke (LM onboard): Let's let it warm up, John.

096 29 11 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, Houston. How do you read? Over.

096 29 22 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, Houston. How do you read on the Primary s?

096 29 27 Irwin: Orion, Houston. How do you read?

096 29 27 Duke (LM onboard): Loud [garble]...

096 29 33 Young (LM): Loud and clear.

096 29 35 Irwin: Roger. We just barely hear you, and I have a landing site TCA for you if you're ready to copy.

096 29 43 Young (LM): Roger; can we now do the DPS pressurization checkout? Over.

096 29 54 Irwin: Roger; we're ready for DPS press.

096 29 58 Young (LM): Okay.

096 29 59 Duke (LM): Can you - Go ahead with the TCA now.

096 30 20 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, here we go. Prop Temp/Press Monitor, Descent i...

096 30 23 Young (LM onboard): One.

096 30 24 Duke (LM onboard): ...Descent.

096 30 26 Young (LM): I checked all that, Charlie.

096 30 26 Duke (LM onboard): Okay.

096 30 27 Young (LM): We're down to right here.

096 30 28 Duke (LM): Okay, Master Arm, On.

096 30 30 Young (LM): Talkback l, Master ARMs On. Okay.

096 30 35 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, you should have two lights.

096 30 36 Young (LM onboard): Two lights.

096 30 37 Duke (LM onboard): Okay.

096 30 38 Young (LM onboard): Master ARMs On.

096 30 39 Young (LM): Two lights, Houston

096 30 41 Duke (LM): Descent Propellant Isol Valve, Fire.

096 30 43 Young (LM): Okay, Descent Prop Isol Valve is going to Fire. [Garble] to Pyro.

096 30 46 Duke (LM): Helium Press Descent Start, Fire.

096 30 47 Duke (LM onboard): Helium Press Descent Start, Fire.

096 30 49 Young (LM onboard): Helium Press Descent Start is going to Fire.

096 30 48 Irwin: Orion, this is Houston. Go to Downvoice Backup. Over.

096 30 55 Duke (LM): We are in Downvoice Backup, Jim.

096 30 57 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, Fire.

096 30 59 Young (LM): Okay, the DPS is pressurizing.

096 31 03 Duke (LM): 200 to 250, it should be.

096 31 07 Young (LM): Okay. It did pressurize, 245 to 245. And the Ambient Press is 410, the Supercrit Press is 1170.

096 31 15 Duke (LM onboard): Good.

096 31 19 Young (LM onboard): 1160.

096 31 20 Duke (LM onboard): Okay.

096 31 21 Young (LM onboard): Okay, the Ambient Press is down to 390.

096 31 23 Duke (LM onboard): Master Arm, Off. Did you get that?

096 31 24 Young (LM onboard): Master Arm is Off. Two lights off.

096 31 28 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, I'll get the AGS activation here. Let's just leave this down there so we can both see it. Okay, will you wipe out my helmet, please?

096 31 32 Young (LM onboard): Yeah, sure will, Charlie. (Laughter).

096 31 38 Young (LM): Tell you one thing Charlie's not going to get up here, and that's scurvy.

096 31 39 Irwin: Orion, Biomed switch, Off.

096 31 46 Duke (LM): Biomed is Off, Jim.

096 31 50 Young (LM onboard): I've drifted off in attitude.

096 31 58 Duke (LM onboard): That's okay.

096 31 56 Irwin: Orion, the DPS pressurization checkout looks good.

096 32 02 Young (LM): Looked good to us.

096 32 04 Young (LM onboard): What is that?

096 32 09 Duke (LM onboard): That's the AOT - that's the filter out of here.

096 32 10 Young (LM onboard): Oh, okay.

096 32 11 Duke (LM onboard): The polarizing coll...

096 32 12 Young (LM onboard): Yeah, that's what it is.

096 32 20 Duke (LM): Okay, Jim. Can you give us our TCA landing site?

096 32 22 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, AC Bus B, AGS, closed.

096 32 27 Young (LM onboard): Okay, the AGS breaker's going closed, Charlie.

096 32 31 Duke (LM onboard): 96, 32, 28.

096 32 32 Young (LM onboard): Okay, I want to pull the Heater circuit breaker...

096 32 33 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, yeah, that's good.

096 32 34 Young (LM onboard): ...the ones that's cleared up.

096 32 36 Irwin: Okay, Orion. The TCA landing site is 96:46:07. Over.

096 32 40 Duke (LM): Roger; 96:46:07.

096 32 46 Duke (LM onboard): AGS Status to Operate, Master Alarm AGS light.

096 32 54 Young (LM): Okay, Charlie. I'm going to do the landing radar checkout now.

096 32 52 Duke (LM onboard): Okay. AGS.

096 32 57 Young (LM onboard): Need a time first?

096 33 01 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah. Okay, and I'll set AGS time, 377. Okay, 90 hours have 6; that's 360, 393, 5.

096 33 24 Young (LM onboard): 393 5, Charlie.

096 33 27 Duke (LM onboard): Mm-hmm.

096 33 30 Duke (LM onboard): Mark it.

096 33 32 Young (LM onboard): It looks good to me. Okay, I want to go over this [garble].

096 33 38 Young (LM): [Garble] landing radar checkout. Landing Radar breaker's, in.

096 33 41 Duke (LM onboard): Okay.

096 33 42 Young (LM): Transponders to Hi Multiple; Select, Landing Radar; H/H-dot; Landing Antenna to Auto.

096 33 XX Young (LM onboard): You bet. Radar Test to Landing.

096 33 52 Duke (LM): There we go. Got them.

096 33 57 Duke (LM): Go to Landing.

096 34 04 Young (LM): Radar Test to Landing; power signal light, out.

096 34 07 Duke (LM): Okay, Jim, Houston on the steerable, I mean - listen at me - Orion on the steerable. How do you read? Over.

096 34 13 Irwin: Orion, we read you much better.

096 34 18 Duke (LM): Okay, it worked that time, Jim; we got a 4.2 signal strength, and the steerable is working, I'm in Track Mode, Auto.

096 34 25 Irwin: Very good. I have some words for you on the RCS.

096 34 32 Duke (LM): Okay, go ahead.

096 34 35 Young (LM onboard): Left.

096 34 38 Irwin: Okay, let's go normal configuration on your RCS and then we want you to transfer three percent more out of System A because we see the pressure going up on A.

096 34 51 Duke (LM): Okay, transferring...

096 34 55 Irwin: And the caution, of course - not more than 180 on the APS.

096 35 04 Young (LM): Okay, the landing radar H-dot is only reading minus 17 right now. The 8000 works okay.

096 35 17 Young (LM onboard): Okay, that looks good.

096 35 26 Irwin: Orion, will you give us Hi bit rate, please?

096 35 27 Young (LM): Okay, that looks good.

096 35 35 Duke (LM): You got Hi bit rate; Biomed is Left.

096 35 38 Irwin: Roger.

096 35 42 Duke (LM): Jim, could we try a pitch maneuver back to the landing site viewing attitude, so we'll see if this thing tracks?

096 35 49 Irwin: Stand by one.

096 35 51 Young (LM onboard): Okay, now that's not reading the right numbers here.

096 35 53 Irwin: Okay, just hold it one. We want to get our uplinks in and then you can try that maneuver.

096 36 01 Duke (LM): Okay.

096 36 02 Duke (LM onboard): What do you mean?

096 36 09 Young (LM onboard): See?

096 36 13 Irwin: Okay, Orion; let's go P00 and Data and we'll send you an up-link.

096 36 20 Young (LM onboard): Let's [garble].

096 36 27 Duke (LM): Okay, you've got P00 and Data.

096 36 29 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, we're off hot mike now.

096 36 29 Irwin: Roger.

096 36 33 Young (LM): Okay, Houston, the landing radar test is not working properly.

096 36 39 Irwin: Okay, what's the problem, John?

096 36 44 Young (LM): Well, it's not reading the right numbers in altitude rate and it's not reading the right numbers in Verb 63. The Altitude Transmitter is 3.2, the Velocity Transmitter - Velocity Transmitter is 3.7.

096 37 07 Irwin: Okay, Orion...

096 37 08 Duke (LM): And, Jim, the AGS is loaded with the data card - go ahead.

096 37 13 Irwin: Okay, we want you to select Normal Voice.

096 37 25 Duke (LM): Okay, you have Normal Voice, AGS is loaded with the - with the data card numbers. Over.

096 37 29 Irwin: Roger; I copied, Charlie.

096 37 46 Irwin: Orion, this is Houston. Are you also showing bad data on the tapemeter for the landing radar?

096 37 54 Young (LM): That's affirmative.

096 37 56 Irwin: Roger.

096 37 57 Young (LM): The H - altitude is reading right at 8000, but the velocity was only reading 15. I'll run it again.

096 38 04 Irwin: Roger

096 38 06 Young (LM): Can I run it while P27 is in progress?

096 38 10 Irwin: Stand by on that one.

096 38 12 Young (LM): Yes, I'm sure I can.

096 38 23 Young (LM onboard): Kind of a problem. Landing Radar to H-dot, Radar Test to Landing.

096 38 24 Irwin: Hold off on that landing radar check until after the - the up-link.

096 38 31 Young (LM): Okay. We'll go off and pull the circuit breakers.

096 39 00 Duke (LM): Jim, we'd like to start a pitch - back down so we could see the landing site.

096 39 06 Irwin: Stand by. We're still getting the up-link.

096 39 57 Irwin: And, Orion; this is Houston. I have the Abort Pads whenever you're all ready.

096 40 06 Duke (LM): Okay, stand by. Okay, go ahead.

096 40 14 Irwin: .Okay, beginning. No PDI plus 12. 098:47 all zeros, plus 0102.3, plus all zeros, minus 0050.0; 0138.0, plus 0011.0, 0113.9; 0:35; all zeros, 273; 5927.0; plus 0102.6, plus all zeros, minus 0049.4; 099:35 all zeros; 101:22:15.00. Throttle profile 10 percent for 26 seconds; full throttle for remainder; LM weight, 36673. Over.

096 41 19 Duke (LM): Okay, Jim. That was a little bit too fast, but I think I got it all. 098:47:00.00, plus 0102.3, plus all balls, minus 0050.0; 0138.0, plus 0011.0, 0113.9; 0:25; all balls, 273; 5927.0; 012760 [sic] plus all balls, minus 0049.4; 099:35 all balls; 1,21:22:15.00. LM - that's throttle profile 10 percent for 26 seconds at full throttle; LM weight, 36673. Go ahead.

096 42 07 Irwin: Roger. It's a good readback. Let me just confirm that Noun 86 Delta- VX is plus 0102.6, and we're finished with your computer. Okay, and we need an E-Mod dump for...

096 42 18 Young (LM): Okay, and I'm going into the landing radar check again.

096 42 19 Irwin: ...Verb 74. You have it.

096 42 25 Young (LM): You have it.

096 42 26 Duke (LM): Okay, read that again, Jim. The - the Delta-VX.

096 42 31 Irwin: Delta-Vx, Noun 86, is plus 0102.6.

096 42 48 Irwin: And, Charlie, I'm ready on the PDI pad.

096 42 54 Duke (LM): Okay, I was wrong on that. I got it now, 0102.6.

096 42 58 Irwin: Okay, are you ready for PDI?

096 43 00 Duke (LM): Go ahead with the PDI pad.

096 43 02 Irwin: Okay, India, zero...

096 43 45 Young (LM): Roger, Jim. Could we start a pitch attitude down to see the landing site? Are you done with our E-Mod, Jim?

096 43 56 Irwin: We're finished with the E-Mod dump, but we'd just as soon get all these pads up, and we're not concerned about the landing site - down here.

096 44 06 Duke (LM): Okay...

096 44 07 Young (LM): I didn't think you were.

096 44 09 Duke (LM): Okay, fine. I - I'm - I'm down through Kilo and I'll read back starting at India. 098:35:04.68; 11:04,plus 0002.6; 002, 114, 340 plus 56997, 101:22:15.00; 103:21:00.00. Over.

096 44 34 Irwin: Okay, that's a good readback, and I have T2 and T3 for you. --

096 44 41 Duke (LM): Go ahead.

096 44 44 Irwin: Okay. T2, Lima, 098:59:29.03; 105:19:45.00; T2 at PDI, plus 24 plus 25; and T3, Nector, 100:42:42.86. Over.

096 45 09 Irwin: Orion, will you verify Auto on the steerable?

096 45 15 Duke (LM): It is in Auto.

096 45 17 Irwin: Roger.

096 45 22 Duke (LM): Okay, and reading back starting with Lima, 098:59:29.53; 105:19:45.00; November, 100:42:42.86. Go ahead with the next one. Over.

096 45 38 Irwin: Okay, we're standing by for the - the landing radar checkout, John; and, of course, Charlie, you got that T2 at PDI at 24 plus 25, and I have an AGS K-factor for you.

096 45 53 Duke (LM): Okay, go ahead with the AGS.

096 45 55 Irwin: Okay. 00090, all zeros, 00111. Over.

096 46 18 Duke (LM): Okay, copied 9 - 90, 00, 00111.

096 46 25 Irwin: Good readback.

096 46 29 Young (LM): Okay - okay, there's the data. It's reading all right in H-dot, but it's changing data in - in the next two registers.

096 46 45 Irwin: Roger; we're looking at it down here.

096 46 46 Young (LM): And the tapemeters is now - and the tapemeter is now reading 480 opening, and the altitude meter would - The first time I did it, it read 8000, and it's now reading zero.

096 47 07 Irwin: Okay, Orion. Let's go Lo bit rate, and we're losing the steerable.

096 47 10 Duke (LM onboard): Roger.

096 47 12 Young (LM onboard): Is it tracking?

096 47 14 Duke (LM onboard): No.

096 47 15 Duke (LM): Jim, I don't think it's tracking in yaw.

096 47 24 Young (LM onboard): Get back over here then. Is it losing it?

096 47 32 Duke (LM onboard): Little bit.

096 47 37 Young (LM onboard): I saw our landing site, Charlie.

096 47 38 Duke (LM onboard): You did?

096 47 39 Young (LM onboard): Yeah.

096 47 40 Duke (LM onboard): What did it look like?

096 47 41 Young (LM onboard): It's okay.

096 47 44 Irwin: Orion, we'll get back to you on the landing radar.

096 47 50 Duke (LM): Roger.

096 47 56 Irwin: And, Orion...

096 47 57 Duke (LM): You can see the data.

096 47 58 Irwin: ...Houston, just a reminder on - to load 405 and 406 to plus zero.

096 48 06 Duke (LM): Roger.

096 48 08 Irwin: And we're ready for Hi bit rate.

096 48 [8 Duke (LM): Okay, you have it.

096 48 19 Irwin: Roger.

096 48 24 Young (LM): Okay, I'm going to terminate the landing radar test, if that's okay with y'all.

096 57 59 Duke (LM onboard): That's it.

096 58 00 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

096 58 02 Duke (LM onboard): Pro, lights up. Super, John. Okay, minus 00005, Pro. Look at that.

096 58 12 Duke (LM): Okay, Houston. The torquing angles: minus 0.000, plus 1.39, minus 0.018.

096 58 27 Irwin: Orion, we cannot read you. Will you go Downvoice Backup?

096 58 36 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, you have Down Voice Backup. And our angles were - Noun 93s were minus 060, plus 139, minus 018, and we Pro'd at 96:58:40.

096 58 52 Young (LM onboard): Okay, we can Enter on that.

096 58 58 Irwin: Orion, go Aft Omni.

096 59 03 Young (LM): Okay, Aft Omni.

096 59 05 Duke (LM onboard): I got Aft Omni. Okay, go to closed and AOT Lamp open, John. Okay. And I think we're getting a little close for Ken to do his - do this rendezvous...

096 59 17 Irwin: Okay, may - perhaps we can read the torquing angles, if you want to give them again.

096 59 21 Duke (LM onboard): Okay. Torquing angles are minus 0.060, plus 0.139, minus 0.018 at 96:58:40.

096 59 39 Young (LM): Star - angle difference was minus four balls five.

096 59 45 Young (LM onboard): The star angle difference is minus four balls five.

096 59 56 Duke (LM onboard): They've already got the up-link in.

097 00 01 Young (LM onboard): Okay, we ought to get the radar check out of the way.

097 00 04 Duke (LM onboard): Well, I think Ken is getting ready for a burn at 90 - in 40 minutes. Ask him if he's ready and can support that.

097 00 09 Young (LM onboard): We don't need it.

097 00 20 Irwin: Okay, we copied your Noun 05, but we did not get the torquing angles. I hope y'all have written them down.

097 00 28 Duke (LM onboard): Roger. Minus 0.060, plus 0.139, minus 0.018. Over.

097 00 58 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, that looks good. That's great.

097 01 13 Irwin: Orion, this is Houston. We'd like to get Hi Bit Rate again and some good voice. We'd like you to go back to that attitude which we gave you of pitch of 053 and set in the steerable angles of Pitch plus 26 and Yaw minus 12.

097 01 30 Duke (LM): Okay, we're en route.

097 01 32 Irwin: And just delay the landing radar test until we get some good data.

097 01 38 Young (LM): Okay.

097 01 54 Duke (LM): I guess on that landing radar - with the circuit breaker in - probably working off the ground - maybe not.

097 02 04 Duke (LM onboard): Could be.

097 02 14 Irwin: Go Forward Omni, Orion.

097 02 22 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, Jim, you have Forward Omni. How do you read?

097 02 47 Young (LM onboard): Ought to get there in a hurry.

097 02 49 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah. You want me to do a Verb 49?

097 02 56 Young (LM onboard): No, we're almost there. What a [garble].

097 03 00 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, Jim, how do you read Forward Omni? Over.

097 03 09 Irwin: Okay, Orion, let's go back to Lo bit rate until we get the steerable.

097 03 14 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, we're Lo bit rate. How do you read now? 053, John.

097 03 24 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

097 03 41 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, we're there.

097 03 50 Duke (LM): Okay, Jim, we have you now on the steerable. How do you read? Over.

097 03 56 Irwin: Oh, I read you loud and clear. You sound beautiful.

097 04 01 Duke (LM): Okay, the P52 went super. Our torquing angles were minus 0.060, plus 0.139, minus 0.018. We torqued at 96:58:40. Over.

097 04 15 Irwin: Roger; copied. On torquing angles, minus 060, plus 0.139, and minus 0 - 0.018 at 96:58:40.

097 04 28 Duke (LM): That's Roger.

097 04 33 Irwin: And you can go Normal voice.

097 04 34 Duke (LM): And the AGS checkout has gone well.

097 04 36 Young (LM): Okay.

097 04 42 Duke (LM): The only thing we haven't done is rendezvous radar checkout and we'll get to that soon as Ken gets through with his burn.

097 04 48 Irwin: Roger; we're recommending that rendezvous radar checkout on the back side, mid landing radar checkout is the one we want to go through now.

097 04 56 Duke (LM): All right, fine.

097 05 02 Young (LM): Okay, we're going now.

097 05 02 Young (LM onboard): Okay, we're going now. Landing Radar, in.

097 05 03 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, CB(11), PGNS Landing Radar, closed.

097 05 07 Young (LM onboard): Closed.

097 05 08 Duke (LM onboard): Check temp.

097 05 09 Young (LM onboard): Go.

097 05 10 Duke (LM onboard): 60 to 95. Okay, that's a little high.

097 05 12 Young (LM onboard): It's been running, Charlie. I've already done it three times. Go.

097 05 16 Duke (LM onboard): Crosspointer, Hi Mult.

097 05 17 Young (LM onboard): Hi Mult.

097 05 18 Duke (LM onboard): Mode Select, Landing Radar.

097 05 19 Young (LM onboard): Landing Radar.

097 05 20 Duke (LM onboard): H/H-dot.

097 05 21 Young (LM onboard): H/H-dot.

097 05 22 Duke (LM onboard): Landing Antenna to Auto.

097 05 23 Young (LM onboard): Landing Antenna to Auto.

097 05 24 Duke (LM onboard): Okay. Radar Test, Landing.

097 05 25 Young (LM onboard): Radar Test to Landing.

097 05 26 Duke (LM onboard): Power signal is out. Going out, test monitor - okay, that's on the tapemeter.

097 05 31 Young (LM onboard): Okay. Okay, it's up and left like it's supposed to be. You reckon it could have...

097 05 39 Irwin: Okay, John, when you get to the Noun 66...

097 05 41 Duke (LM): Do you reckon it could....

097 05 42 Irwin: ...67 values, we want you to read us the tapemeter values of H and H-dot.

097 05 50 Duke (LM onboard): It's right on. It was the...

097 05 52 Young (LM): Okay, it's right on, Houston. It's 8000 at 480 off the H-dot.

097 05 58 Duke (LM onboard): It was locked on at the ground, I bet you.

097 06 01 Irwin: Roger; we copy.

097 06 02 Young (LM onboard): Yeah. Pro, Charlie. Waits I'll have to change this - wait until this one changes.

097 06 10 Duke (LM onboard): Okay.

097 06 12 Young (LM onboard): See, there it goes. Okay now, Pro.

097 06 13 Young (LM): Okay, minus 495, plus 1860, plus 1331.

097 06 20 Duke (LM onboard): Right on.

097 06 21 Young (LM): Right on. And the tape reader is up and left and it's reading 8000 at 480. I think it was locked on the ground or something when we came over that low pass, due to our communications angle. That may be wrong, but that - you know - it was sure acting funny.

097 06 13 Young (LM): Okay, minus 495, plus 1860, plus 1331, right on, and the tapemeter is up and left and it's reading 8000 at 480. I think it was locked on the ground or something when we came over that low pass, due to our communications angle. That may be wrong, but that's - you know - it was sure acting funny.

097 06 34 Irwin: Okay, it's looking good to us now.

097 06 39 Young (LM): Okay, we've got 3.2 on the Altitude Transmitter and 345 on the Velocity Transmitter; make that 355.

097 06 42 Young (LM onboard): Okay, let's terminate this test.

097 06 46 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, Verb 34.

097 06 48 Irwin: Okay, we copy.

097 06 53 Duke (LM): Hey, Jim, on those drink bags, I tell you, it's pretty hard to see things when you've got a helmet full of orange juice in zero gravity, it's something with that orange juice.

097 06 55 Young (LM onboard): Landing Radar to...

097 07 03 Irwin: Well, you've got to drink fast.

097 07 08 Duke (LM): You really do.

097 07 09 Young (LM onboard): Tell me what to do there, Charlie.

097 07 10 Duke (LM onboard): Okay. Eleven - Landing Radar breaker, open.

097 07 11 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

097 07 14 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, we're all set.

097 07 20 Young (LM): When do we get the 210 up, Jim?

097 07 28 Irwin: Okay, acquisition on your next rev.

097 07 30 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, pitch down just a little bit. We're losing it. Okay, it's coming great - coming back in. Why don't you go to Att Hold when you get there. Okay?

097 07 51 Young (LM onboard): All right, I will, Charlie. I never thought about that. What a can of worms.

097 08 11 Duke (LM onboard): Comm can really kill you, can't it?

097 08 13 Young (LM onboard): Wipe you right out.

097 08 15 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, Verb 77. We've got good signal strength.

097 08 30 Duke (LM): Hey, Jim, we had to turn on our window heaters for about ten minutes per side to clear up the windows - right aft - right before undocking.

097 08 38 Irwin: Roger; we copy.

097 08 43 Young (LM onboard): Shoot me another slug - slug of water.

097 08 44 Duke (LM onboard): (Laughter)

097 08 47 Duke (LM): We've been using the - we've been using the LCG pump to keep cool in here, and it's really neat.

097 08 53 Irwin: We copy.

097 08 59 Young (LM): We've been needing something to keep cool, I'll tell you.

097 09 02 Irwin: Yeah, we understand completely.

097 09 16 Duke (LM): Jim, your up-link voice is just beautiful in every antenna we got. Over.

097 09 26 Irwin: Okay, that's a good data point. Unfortunately, the down-link is very, very noisy.

097 09 36 Duke (LM): Okay, I wonder what happened. On the check - the comm checks we did at 55 hours, of course, it was closer, but it was real good then, I thought.

097 09 48 Young (LM onboard): what do we need to do here, Charlie?

097 09 50 Duke (LM onboard): Well, we're going to copy and load gyros -

097 09 53 Young (LM onboard): No, scrub those things.

097 09 55 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah, okay. We'll scrub this.

097 09 57 Irwin: Okay, we understand it's just a completely different situation, Charlie.

097 10 06 Duke (LM): Okay.

097 10 07 Duke (LM onboard): If you'll let me get this camera...

097 10 09 Irwin: But your voice is just crystal clear right now.

097 10 17 Young (LM): Roger.

097 10 21 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, John, I'm going to set - see what I have to set this thing at. Turn the page a little bit. I think it's 500.

097 11 22 Duke (LM onboard): John, I think I ought to take this drink bag out of my suit so I won't have a face full of water.

097 11 25 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

097 11 26 Duke (LM onboard): It'll probably all settle out when I'm...

097 11 28 Young (LM onboard): When you get on the Moon.

097 11 29 Duke (LM onboard): ...when I get on the Moon and once we get some g on us.

097 11 30 Young (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 11 31 Duke (LM onboard): What do you think?

097 11 32 Young (LM onboard): Yeah, I think you're right.

097 11 33 Duke (LM onboard): Take it out?

097 11 35 Young (LM onboard): Well, unless it's really - if it's really not bothering you too bad, leave it in there and drink from it.

097 11 43 Duke (LM onboard): Well, I'll tell you what. I'll be very careful. Wonder if I could cut that microphone off.

097 11 47 Young (LM onboard): No, I wouldn't do it, but why don't you shape it in like this, pull it in like this. There you go. Then if - then if you pull it up.

097 11 55 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, that's - that's great.

097 11 59 Young (LM onboard): See?

097 12 01 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah, okay.

097 12 17 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, let me see a pencil and a - give me those gyro torquing numbers, John.

097 12 21 Young (LM onboard): Which ones, Charlie?

097 12 24 Duke (LM onboard): On the time line where we - the P52 you just did. Back over here.

097 12 27 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

097 12 28 Duke (LM onboard): It was 96:58...

097 12 29 Young (LM onboard): Yeah, 96:58:40.

097 12 30 Duke (LM onboard): [Garble] 96:59.

097 12 31 Young (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 12 32 Duke (LM onboard): And the previous torque was...

097 12 34 Young (LM onboard): Minus 060?

097 12 35 Duke (LM onboard): No, wait a minute. When did we do the dock P52?

097 12 37 Young (LM onboard): What are you worried about that for?

097 12 39 Duke (LM onboard): I want to calculate these gyro drift comps. Give me your checklist out of your purse - Wait a minute.

097 12 46 Irwin: Orion, this is Houston with some trajectory information for you.

097 12 51 Young (LM onboard): That's the activation one, Charlie.

097 12 56 Duke (LM): Go ahead.

097 12 57 Duke (LM onboard): Give me yours. I'll put it up for you.

097 12 57 Irwin: Roger. It looks like you'll be coming in about 10,000 feet [3000 metres] high at PDI, John, which will be about 3 to 4 seconds of hover time, and you'll be 17,000 feet [5000 metres]...

097 13 09 Young (LM): Understand.

097 13 10 Irwin: ...south.

097 13 14 Duke (LM): Okay, does that mean that we're going to be - at pitchover, we'll be steering from south to north?

097 13 21 Irwin: That's affirmative.

097 !3 25 Young (LM): Okay, so at pitchover, we'll be - you'll be targeting us right into the target, but we'll be steering from south to north. Is that based on Ken's tracking?

097 13 38 Irwin: No, that's not - Negative on that one.

097 13 40 Duke (LM onboard): How did he get...

097 13 41 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

097 13 42 Irwin: But you'll probably be coming straight in by the time you get down to pitchover.

097 13 48 Young (LM): Okay, thank you.

097 13 49 Duke (LM onboard): How did he do on the landmark tracking? Ask him.

097 13 51 Young (LM): How did landmark tracking turn out ?

097 13 57 Irwin: Stand by.

097 14 00 Duke (LM onboard): We didn't even use it.

097 14 05 Irwin: Okay, the landmark tracking looked very good, John.

097 14 10 Young (LM): Okay.

097 14 18 Irwin: Orion, will you give us your ED Bat read-out, please?

097 14 27 Duke (LM): The same as always, 37 volts.

097 14 30 Irwin: Very good.

097 14 43 Young (LM): Jim, is Guidance going to have any gyro drift for us ?

097 14 47 Irwin: Stand by.

097 14 57 Irwin: Okay, no update on that. And it looks like your - the attitude for PDI is very close to the one that we'd like for the s - steerable, so we'll try that when you come around at AOS.

097 15 14 Duke/Young (LM): Okay.

097 15 16 Duke (LM): And, Jim, on this P52. That radar has drifted up into the field of view, but it's no sweat just moving it down in slew. It's smooth.

097 15 28 Irwin: Okay, we copy.

097 15 39 Duke (LM): And one other thing that - when we put those state vectors in there, I guess we didn't have any - the LM vector in there and my Computer Activity light stayed on all the time. I finally figured out what it was and did a Verb 66 and got rid of it.

097 15 55 Irwin: Okay, we concur.

097 15 57 Duke (LM): I think - I think that's what it was.

097 16 01 Irwin: Everybody's nodding their head down here - affirmative.

097 16 11 Duke (LM onboard): How you staying down there so good?

097 16 17 Young (LM onboard): Charlie, I'm sitting in one g now.

097 16 21 Duke (LM onboard): You are?

097 16 22 Young (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 26 23 Duke (LM onboard): Why?

097 16 25 Young (LM onboard): Because I'm right on the floor.

097 16 27 Duke (LM onboard): This Velcro just doesn't work. I just come right up off it.

097 16 44 Duke (LM onboard): Well, John, it was heck (laughter) for a while, but I think we made it.

097 16 50 Young (LM onboard): I think we did, Charlie. But I don't understand what we are going to do about this if that pressure keeps climbing up. Do you?

097 16 57 Duke (LM onboard): No.

097 17 00 Young (LM onboard): Can we fly down...

097 17 06 Duke (LM): Houston, 16 - what appears to be the problem with System A. Is it a reg[ulator] problem or what?

097 17 08 Irwin: Yes, that's affirmative, Charlie, a reg problem.

097 17 14 Duke (LM): Okay, will we have a - If we use up fuel - just System A for descent, is what you want us to do.

097 17 23 Irwin: Stand by. We'll give you an RCS configuration for PDI when y'all come around the corner.

097 17 31 Duke (LM): Okay. Well, we'll be back.

097 17 40 Young (LM): And I'd like somebody to think about this high APS pressure we have during the lunar stay. Over.

097 17 50 Irwin: Okay, we're looking at that one too, John.

097 17 54 Young (LM onboard): He doesn't know the difference between you and me. He keeps calling me you and you me.

097 17 57 Duke (LM onboard): I know it. That's going to bite us right there.

097 18 06 Young (LM onboard): That APS pressure? Yeah, we can't do that, can we? Oh, no, you stay for 3 days...

097 18 11 Irwin: Okay, we are noticing an increase in the RCS pressure there, but we have enough ullage volume now to get the - all the propellant out.

097 18 26 Young (LM): Understand. Thank you.

097 18 28 Young (LM onboard): That means you're going to let it go to the relief valve.

097 18 32 Duke (LM onboard): I guess so.

097 19 04 Duke (LM onboard): You want to apologize for our comments on hot mike during that hectic time period?

097 19 08 Irwin: Orion, this is Houston. Have you...

097 19 09 Young (LM): Yes, If we were on hot mike...

097 19 10 Irwin: ...ever noticed any change in your yaw meter?

097 19 17 Young (LM): Jim, it's - stuck on minus 12.

097 19 21 Irwin: Okay, and go ahead, John.

097 19 26 Young (LM): I think that if we're on hot mike when we're talking to each other, I want to apologize right now. It's probably pretty interesting. Probably not, if the comm was as bad as you said it was.

097 19 45 Irwin: It was good enough for us to understand you.

097 19 51 Duke (LM onboard): That's what I was afraid of (laughter).

097 19 52 Young (LM): We were afraid of that.

097 20 05 Young (LM onboard): [Garble] these things.

097 20 06 Irwin: Okay, Orion. If you see that reg pressure creeping up, you could do a small maneuver, which would help the situation.

097 20 15 Duke (LM): Understand; we'll do that.

097 20 21 Young (LM): We'll do a Verb 49 for the AGS cal attitude, Jim.

097 20 33 Irwin: Okay. And, Orion, we're coming up on about two minutes to LOS.

097 20 43 Duke (LM onboard): You want to answer him, John?

097 20 45 Young (LM): Roger; two minutes to LOS. See you around for PDI.

097 21 15 Irwin: Orion, this is Houston. For your information the burst disk pressure is 215 to 220 - the RCS.

097 21 26 Duke (LM): Roger; understand. Jim, is it both systems you see climbing?

097 21 35 Irwin: Just System A.

097 21 39 Duke (LM): Just System A, right.

097 21 49 Young (LM onboard): Let's load that, Charlie.

097 21 51 Duke (LM onboard): That, the AGS cal?

097 21 52 Young (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 21 53 Duke (LM onboard): Okay...

097 21 58 Young (LM onboard): What's the AGS cal attitude?

097 22 01 Duke (LM onboard): Okay. 02250, plus 11250, plus 00250.

097 22 20 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

097 22 21 Duke (LM): Hey, Jim, I saw the landing site as we passed over it. We're not going to have any trouble recognizing it from the rays. The rays stand out beautifully.

097 22 28 Irwin: Very good. Glad to hear it.

Public Affairs Officer: This is Apollo Control and both spacecraft have passed behind the Moon during the end of the 12th lunar orbit. During this past, rather interesting, frontside pass, several nagging problems have cropped up or have been carried over from the preceding revolution. One concern is the landing radar which in its self-test mode gave some spurious readouts, the readouts never agreeing with what the test should be. Later on in a repetition of the landing radar self-test, the numbers on the onboard display came out as they should. John Young speculated that perhaps because of the low altitude at the time of the first attempt at the landing radar self-test, they were getting some ground reflections from the lunar surface which caused the self-test to be invalid. The self-test of the rendezvous radar has been postponed until the upcoming backside pass prior to acquisition on Rev 13. The steerable antenna situation is still coming in and out as the steerable antenna appears to be locked in a stowed position. However, with the spacecraft attitude, oriented such that the antenna faces the Earth, we've had fairly good communications during the better part of this front side pass. The 210 foot dish at Goldstone will acquire the spacecraft at the start of Rev 13, and even if the steerable antenna is completely inoperative, all high bit rate data communications, voice, everything normally carried by the steerable antenna through the 85-foot dishes will be available on the ground. [On]the Lunar Module reaction control system regulator situation, the crew is still running through some procedures to manage the two systems, A and B, of the Reaction Control System aboard the Lunar Module to balance the regulator pressures for the propellants. System A appears to creep upward slightly, periodically, and by opening the cross-feed valve, venting some of the propellant into the ascent tanks, it appears that the situation will stabilize. The descent propulsion system throttle check and the descent propulsion system pressurization routines were carried out completely normally earlier in Revolution 12. Ken Mattingly, meanwhile, was given a go to circularize with the Command Module, Casper. Ignition time for this burn is 97 hours, 40 minutes, 17 seconds. It will be a Service Propulsion System burn, [of] 99.6 feet per second. We'll circularize at about 51.8 by 68.2 [nautical miles]. This is slightly elliptical but because of the perturbations of lunar orbit, the orbit of the Command Module should be almost circular at the time of rendezvous. Acquisition 43 minutes, 23 seconds from now, as both spacecraft coming around the front side. None of the problems mentioned with the RCA reaction control system regulators or the steerable antenna preclude the lunar landing. Even if the S-band - steerable S-band antenna is completely inoperative, we're still go for landing using the Omni antennas through the Goldstone 210 foot dish. 42 minutes 36 seconds away from acquisition on the PDI or landing orbit at 97:28 ground elapsed time, this is Apollo Control.

[For this period until AOS, both Orion's and Casper's transcripts are presented together.]

097 22 47 Duke (LM onboard): Here we go.

097 22 55 Young (LM onboard): Now, shall we do it?

097 22 59 Duke (LM onboard): Oh...

097 23 00 Young (LM onboard): Might as well.

097 23 03 Duke (LM onboard): Going P00 and Data [garble].

097 23 08 Young (LM onboard): Okay, go ahead.

097 23 11 Duke (LM comm): Ken, how do you read? Over.

097 23 13 Mattingly (CM comm): Loud and clear. How me?

097 23 23 Young (LM comm): Ken, do you read us on VHF? Over.

097 23 26 Mattingly (CM comm): Yes, loud and clear.

097 23 29 Young (LM comm): You fixing to do the burn s right?

097 23 31 Mattingly (CM comm): Sure am.

097 23 33 Young (LM onboard): Okay, when you finish the burn, we'd like to get a radar check [garble].

097 23 38 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay. I'll see what I can do.

097 23 43 Young (LM comm): [Garble] I know that sounds a little late, but we'd sure like to do it. We'll do a P76 after you finish your verb - and a Verb 83 and get a radar lock, if that'd be all right.

097 23 55 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay, Let's see how much I have to do.

097 23 58 Young (LM comm): Okay.

097 24 01 Duke (LM onboard): Here we go. Gosh! This thing take off.

097 24 43 Young (LM onboard): Spares no effort.

097 24 45 Duke (LM onboard): It sure doesn't.

097 24 47 Young (LM onboard): Now, we wait here about five minutes; it'll get the rates dorm so low I can do a Verb 76 and you can do the whole bit.

097 24 53 Duke (LM onboard): Okay.

097 24 54 Young (LM onboard): Look at the - See we got zero rates. Look at the - look what she pitch rate is, five degrees down.

097 25 03 Duke (LM onboard): Mine says the same thing. Okay, 540 read-out: hasn't changed. 541 read-out: that hasn't changed. 542 read-out: that hasn't changed. 544 read-out: hasn't changed. 545 read-out: it's good. 546 readout: good. It says go Attitude Hold, going to damp the rates, too, and Enter on that. Verb 60, a Verb 76, and Verb 1620.

097 26 08 Young (LM onboard): I already got enough to do...

097 26 11 Duke (LM onboard): [Garble] we go. Okay, 400, and I stopped the DET. [garble].

097 27 46 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, I'm going to cycle the CWEA.

097 27 50 Young (LM onboard): All right, Charlie, why don't you cycle the CWEA. It had a Quad 1 light on when you did it. Remember we did that before once?

097 28 01 Duke (LM onboard): Quad 1 light? We had a Quad 1 light then?

097 28 07 Young (LM onboard): A red light - a red flag when you cycled it. it cycled all of them, as a matter of fact...

097 28 10 Duke (LM onboard): Oh.

097 28 11 Young (LM onboard): ...It reset them all.

097 28 13 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 28 51 Young (LM onboard): What do you stay in here for? if they don't have the high gain, there won't be no reason - Well, maybe they'll get us on a 250-foot dish. I've lost my glove - No, there they are. Where's yours? You got your gloves somewhere?

097 29 05 Duke (LM onboard): [Garble].

097 29 06 Young (LM onboard): Aren't you smart. What you going to do with your hat?

097 29 10 Duke (LM onboard): I don't know. What's it doing down there?

097 29 11 Young (LM onboard): Well, you said wash it out, so I left it there.

097 29 12 Duke (LM onboard): Oh, okay.

097 29 21 Young (LM onboard): Ain't the clearest in the world, but it's the clearest I could do, Charlie. Honest.

097 29 27 Duke (LM onboard): It's terrible.

097 29 30 Young (LM onboard): You want to try it yourself? Just doesn't come off.

097 29 34 Duke (LM onboard): Have you got another - another towel?

097 29 40 Young (LM onboard): Have I got another towel? Yeah, there's a whole thing of them over here.

097 29 44 Duke (LM onboard): Let me wet this one down a little bit.

097 30 15 Young (LM onboard): You start a clock backwards?

097 30 17 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 30 21 Young (LM onboard): Yeah, I ain't done nothing right since I got out of bed this morning.

097 31 02 Young (LM onboard): Okay, we're getting - we're getting behind the time line probably - maybe.

097 31 05 Duke (LM onboard): No, we aren't. We're okay.

097 31 06 Young (LM onboard): Okay, nothing we can do here, huh?

097 31 09 Duke (LM onboard): Can you give me a tissue - try it on the front.

097 31 35 Duke (LM onboard): That's better.

097 31 43 Young (LM onboard): Here you go, Charlie.

097 31 44 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, could you dry it a little bit for me, some more, while I copy the AGS cal numbers. We're through with this.

097 31 50 Mattingly (CM onboard): [Garble] buses are [garble] Auto, [garble] Main A [garble] Auto [garble] AC2 [garble] Off, [garble] BMAGs to 1 Att, Spacecraft Controller to SCS.

097 32 19 Mattingly (CM onboard): [Garble] marked. [Garble].

097 33 12 Mattingly (CM onboard): [Garble] yaw [garble].

097 33 31 Mattingly (CM onboard): [Garble].

097 33 43 Mattingly (CM onboard): It's not gonna work.

097 32 47 Young (LM onboard): Here you go, Charlie. Where do you want to keep it?

097 32 50 Duke (LM onboard): Just velcro it back up here somewhere.

097 32 57 Young (LM onboard): We'll hit pretty hard.

097 33 05 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, that's great, John.

097 33 12 Young (LM onboard): You know where to velcro it. How about right there?

097 33 16 Duke (LM onboard): Where?

097 33 17 Young (LM onboard): See there?

097 33 18 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah, that'll be all right. No, I'll - I'll...

097 33 19 Young (LM onboard): Can you get it?

097 33 20 Duke (LM onboard): ...knock into.

097 33 21 Young (LM onboard): Wait a minute.

097 33 22 Duke (LM onboard): Wait a minute.

097 33 23 Young (LM onboard): How about right - there?

097 33 25 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah, there's a piece.

097 33 26 Young (LM onboard): Okay, it won't go anywhere.

097 33 28 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, here you go. AGS cal is complete.

097 33 43 Young (LM onboard): How's that pressure looking? It's up there, isn't it?

097 33 49 Duke (LM onboard): It's okay.

097 34 26 Mattingly (CM onboard): I be a sorry bird.

097 34 30 Young (LM onboard): Charlie, this is fun, by golly. (Laughter) It's really - it's really - it's the worse sim I've ever been in.

097 34 39 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 34 40 Young (LM onboard): It's [garble].

097 34 44 Duke (LM onboard): It's really bad, isn't it?

097 35 01 Mattingly (CM comm): Hey, Orion?

097 35 03 Young (LM onboard): You speak.

097 35 04 Young (LM comm): Go ahead, Ken.

097 35 10 Mattingly (CM comm): I have an unstable yaw gimbal Number 2. It's just been oscillating and - oscillates in - yaw any time it gets excited.

097 35 22 Young (LM comm): Oh, boy.

097 35 26 Mattingly (CM comm): You got any quick ideas?

097 35 33 Young (LM comm): No, I sure don't,

097 35 41 Duke (LM comm): What does your rules say, Ken?

097 35 43 Mattingly (CM comm): This thing says I have to have four servo loops to do the Circ [Burn].

097 35 49 Duke (LM onboard): It's what?

097 35 51 Mattingly (CM comm): Every time I put Number 2 servo on, it's okay until I disturb it, and then it starts to oscillate. And you can feel the spacecraft shaking. It's really doing it.

097 36 02 Young (LM comm): Okay. You have to have four loops to do Circ, huh?

097 36 12 Mattingly (CM comm): That's what it says. It's unstable in all SCS modes on secondary servo [garble]. I can't believe it, but I'm watching it. Every time I select the secondary yaw gimbal, any excursion in the thumb-wheel to go unstable.

097 36 41 Young (LM comm): Okay. Well, just hold what you got then.

097 36 45 Duke (LM comm): Hey, Ken, why don't you just stop it and then start it again.

097 36 47 Mattingly (CM comm): I've done that twice.

097 36 50 Duke (LM onboard): Oh, okay.

097 36 58 Young (LM comm): Well, let us get pointed at you and do a Verb 83.

097 37 03 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay, gang. I'm sure sorry about this, but that Number 2 servo is just oscillating like a wild man.

097 37 11 Young (LM comm): Yeah.

097 37 12 Mattingly (CM comm): And I tried it both in Manual and TVC and in the -in the - just with the thumb-wheel, and I get the same response. There could be a switch here somewhere but I - I swear I've checked them all, all I can. I guess I'll power them down.

097 37 32 Young (LM comm): Yep, and tell the ground when you go around.

097 37 35 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay. Brother, what a way to start the day, huh?

097 37 41 Young (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 37 46 Mattingly (CM onboard): Do you suppose there's any - Let me try terminating 509 and see if that would help maybe. No, it was in SCS. That shouldn't have any effect. I wonder if we got that relay stuck in there some way.

097 37 59 Young (LM onboard): The TVC enable relay?

097 38 02 Mattingly (CM comm): Yeah. I'm gonna try my gimbal drive check anyhow - in the G&N.

097 38 06 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

097 38 33 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, John, I'll give you some needles. Follow those needles in AGS and point to him.

097 38 42 Mattingly (CM comm): [Garble] no good in TVC either - in my gimbal drive check.

097 38 47 Young (LM onboard): Okay. Which way do I go? I have to...

097 38 52 Mattingly (CM comm): I'm gonna back out here and power down.

097 38 56 Duke (LM onboard): Yaw left, pitch down.

097 38 59 Young (LM comm): Okay. Okay, Ken, some - some you win and some you lose. I don't see any...

097 39 04 Mattingly (CM comm): (Vox) 2's Off; Pitch 2's Off. Yaw l's Off; Pitch l's Off. Servos 1 and 2 are off.

097 39 17 Young (LM comm): Roger.

097 39 24 Mattingly (CM comm): Going back to P00.

097 39 31 Duke (LM onboard): No, good in - PGNS won't do it either?

097 39 37 Young (LM onboard): That's why you don't leave the gimbals running for 20 minutes at a clip.

097 39 44 Mattingly (CM comm): Bus Ties are coming Off; 1; 2's Off.

097 40 20 Duke (LM onboard): Just lost one gimbal motor, hasn't he?

097 40 23 Young (LM onboard): Lost a servo loop in yaw.

097 40 28 Duke (LM comm): Hey, Ken, is it both gimbals oscillate like that?

097 40 30 Mattingly (CM comm): No, the Number 2; and my burn rules say I got to have two sets of servo loops - two on each; got to have all four servo loops to go.

097 40 39 Young (LM comm): I think that's right, Ken.

097 40 40 Mattingly (CM comm): I'm sorry, gang. I don't know what to do with the darn thing. It does it both when the CMC drives it and when we drive it. I've started it, restarted it, and it's just apparently really in the servo loop.

097 41 02 Young (LM onboard): Instant sunrise.

097 41 03 Duke (LM onboard): Um-hmm.

097 41 13 Young (LM comm): You get there before we do or do we get there before you do?

097 41 17 Mattingly (CM comm): I don't know; it's probably a very close race. Yeah [garble]. In fact, I guess the next thing we've got to do is make sure we don't hit.

097 41 26 Young (LM comm): I'll work on that.

097 41 28 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay.

097 42 15 Duke (LM onboard): Get a little roll in there, John. I guess - you're coming around okay, though. Roll doesn't really matter.

097 42 28 Young (LM onboard): Oh, terrible!

097 42 52 Young (LM onboard): Where is it, Charlie?

097 42 54 Duke (LM onboard): We've got to pitch down.

097 43 03 Young (LM onboard): When's AOS?

097 43 05 Duke (LM onboard): We've got a little bit to go yet.

097 43 39 Duke (LM onboard): There he is.

097 43 40 Young (LM onboard): You got it?

097 43 41 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 43 43 Young (LM onboard): How...

097 43 45 Mattingly (CM comm): I show us at 0.8 miles and 0.8 of a foot per second.

097 43 53 Young (CM comm): You got a lookup?

097 43 55 Duke (CM comm): We got a visual on you.

097 43 56 Mattingly (CM comm): You have?

097 43 58 Duke (LM comm): Yes, sir.

097 43 59 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay.

097 44 03 Duke (LM onboard): See him, John?

097 44 04 Young (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 44 07 Duke (LM onboard): What's that flashing?

097 44 10 Young (LM onboard): He's firing thrusters.

097 44 11 Duke (LM onboard): Oh.

097 44 12 Young (LM onboard): His beacon is on.

097 44 14 Mattingly (CM comm): Which way am I pointing compared to you? I should be about 180 degrees away from you, huh?

097 44 22 Duke (LM comm): All we can...

097 44 24 Young (LM comm): There's no way to tell, T. K.

097 44 26 Mattingly (CM comm): Oh, okay. I thought you could see more than that.

097 44 31 Duke (LM comm): All we see is your thruster firing.

097 44 38 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay, I've got my rendezvous lights on.

097 45 13 Duke (LM onboard): I just don't believe it.

097 45 17 Young (LM onboard): We must have done something wrong.

097 45 29 Young (comm): Okay, Ken, we're going to lock up the radar on you.

097 45 33 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay; I'm probably going to have to maneuver it so you can get a transponder. I doubt that you can get a - a lockup where I am now. Be with you in just a minute.

097 45 40 Young (LM comm): Well, we'll give her a go anyway. You're not very far away. We'll see.

097 45 50 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, Guidance Control, PGNS.

097 45 52 Young (LM onboard): We're there?

097 45 54 Duke (LM onboard): AC Bus A, Rendezvous Radar, closed.

097 46 00 Young (LM onboard): It's closed. Thirty seconds, Charlie.

097 46 20 Duke (LM onboard): Okay. Slew for a manual lock on his [garble]. We're probably going to have to pitch up a little bit.

097 46 43 Young (LM onboard): We're only three degrees away from him.

097 46 49 Duke (LM onboard): He just disappeared out the top of my window.

097 46 53 Young (LM onboard): I got him.

097 46 57 Duke (LM onboard): Oh, yeah, there he is.

097 47 16 Duke (LM onboard): No signal strength yet.

097 47 18 Young (LM comm): Okay, Ken, we must be out of your field of view.

097 47 23 Mattingly (CM onboard): Okay. I don't want to call P20 because I'm not sure how it would interact with all this other stuff. So I'm gonna try another way of finding you. I'm gonna start a little pitch around. I'll pick you up and catch you later.[ "I 'm going to start a little pitch around and I think I'll pick you up." in LM transcript]

097 47 34 Young (LM comm): Well, turn on the tracking light, Charlie. [Garble].

097 47 36 Duke (LM onboard): Okay.

097 47 53 Young (LM onboard): I knew what the transformation error was.

097 49 03 Young (LM onboard): Why isn't it moving? Oh, no.

097 49 13 Duke (LM onboard): You're in Auto Track.

097 49 41 Young (LM onboard): What time do we get AOS?

097 49 47 Duke (LM onboard): About 98:08.

097 49 49 Young (LM onboard): Okay, I want to be in the right attitude when we get there.

097 50 03 Young (LM onboard): You got the sunrise?

097 50 05 Duke (LM onboard): Looks like it.

097 50 09 Young (LM comm): Okay, Ken, we've had sunrise, and the Sun is behind us. I guess that's the best cue.

097 50 12 Mattingly (CM comm): I got an unusually bright star. I bet that's you.

097 50 17 Young (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 50 19 Mattingly (CM comm): I'm almost pointing at you, if that's the case. I don't - That couldn't be. Must be a planet.

097 50 26 Duke (LM comm): We got our tracking light on.

097 50 35 Young (LM comm): You ought to be right in the sunrise.

097 50 38 Mattingly (CM comm): Well, I guess you're a little ahead of me. You may get AOS first.

097 51 18 Young (LM comm): Is your transponder working?

097 51 20 Mattingly (CM comm): Well, it self-checked okay.

097 51 23 Young (LM comm): Okay.

097 51 24 Mattingly (CM comm): I don't show anything on the AGC yet. Power's on. It should work.

097 52 08 Young (LM onboard): Want to transfer some more of it to the RCS?

097 52 11 Duke (LM onboard): Well, we're right on the limit there [garble]. Firing it.

097 52 16 Mattingly (CM comm): You're looking down-Sun at me, right?

097 52 19 Young (LM onboard): Yep.

097 52 28 Mattingly (CM comm): Say there, John, you're looking down-Sun at me?

097 52 29 Young (LM comm): That's affirmative.

097 52 29 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay. I'm coming into the Sun, so I guess I must be coming closer to you.

097 53 10 Young (LM onboard): Slew in Low, Right?

097 53 11 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 53 13 Young (LM comm): We're pointed right at you, Ken.

097 53 15 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay.

097 53 27 Mattingly (CM comm): I'm passing through the Sun right now.

097 53 45 Young (LM onboard): That radar.

097 54 17 Young (LM comm): You ought to be looking right at us.

097 54 18 Mattingly (CM comm): Well, what I'm looking at right now is the Sun.

097 54 25 Young (LM comm): That ought to be us.

097 54 28 Mattingly (CM comm): Seen my attitude yet?

097 54 30 Young (LM comm): No, I can't - I can't see you at all. All I see is the light.

097 54 34 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay. If you have your tracking light on, you can turn it off before you burn it out. Maybe they can figure out some way to make it useful yet.

097 54 39 Young (LM comm): Okay.

097 54 41 Duke (LM onboard): There you go.

097 54 42 Young (LM comm): Okay, we got signal strength.

097 54 47 Mattingly (CM onboard): Roger. I show you locking up.

097 54 57 Young (LM onboard): Okay, go ahead and go to Auto Track, Charlie.

097 54 58 Duke (LM onboard): Okay.

097 55 32 Young (LM onboard): Down and to the - down and to the left, Charlie. Three degrees down and right in the middle.

097 55 40 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, we've got it. That's what the needles say.

097 55 42 Young (LM onboard): Okay. Okay.

097 55 44 Duke (LM onboard): Okay.

097 55 47 Young (LM onboard): All right. All right, we've got it.

097 55 50 Duke (LM onboard): The tapemeter running [garble] we'll go to LGC, Verb 63.

097 55 54 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

097 55 55 Duke (LM onboard): Wait a minute [garble] all this.

097 56 07 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

097 56 12 Duke (LM onboard): [Garble] firing it, John.

097 56 15 Young (LM onboard): Okay, we'll let's - let's do this and get out of here...

097 56 16 Duke (LM onboard): I'm doing it.

097 56 17 Young (LM onboard): ...82 and 46.

097 56 18 Duke (LM onboard): Okay. I got to wait until it locks up.

097 56 19 Young (LM onboard): It's locked up.

097 56 20 Duke (LM onboard): It ain't.

097 56 28 Young (LM onboard): Well, it ain't never going to with me firing these jets like this - and not looking at him.

097 56 52 Mattingly (CM comm): Did it look like I was going over the top of you, John?

097 56 56 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 56 58 Young (LM comm): Yeah, I believe so. Sure does.

097 57 00 Duke (LM comm): Yeah, you are.

097 57 02 Duke (LM onboard): Keep pitching, John.

097 57 04 Young (LM onboard): Which way?

097 57 05 Duke (LM onboard): Up, he's going up.

097 57 09 Young (LM onboard): He's going up. He's going down underneath us.

097 57 15 Duke (LM onboard): That's right, that's right. He should go down underneath us.

097 57 27 Young (LM onboard): Okay, you got to Pro on that.

097 57 31 Duke (LM onboard): It ain't locked up, John.

097 57 47 Duke (LM onboard): He's off to the left.

097 57 59 Duke (LM onboard): There was the rendezvous radar light.

097 58 02 Young (LM onboard): Huh? Yeah, it's locked - he's locked up. Good enough.

097 58 06 Duke (LM onboard): The light is not out. It is not locked up unless the light goes out.

097 58 10 Young (LM onboard): Okay, but I want to get the PDI attitude.

097 58 13 Duke (LM onboard): Well, let's go to PDI and forego this.

097 58 15 Young (LM comm): Okay, we're terminating this rendezvous radar test, Ken. We're going to go to PDI attitude.

097 58 18 Young (LM onboard): Let's do a Verb 49 to that one.

097 58 20 Duke (LM onboard): No, it won't work until after you Pro at [garble] until you get a Verb...

097 58 23 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay; I don't have a visual on you yet, John.

097 58 28 Young (LM comm): Okay. Well, we're out in front of you and we're...

097 58 33 Mattingly (CM comm): You're out in front?

097 58 36 Young (LM comm): That's affirmative. We're ahead of you. No, dadgummit.

097 58 41 Mattingly (CM comm): I don't see how that could be.

097 58 46 Young (LM comm): Well, we're - we're upside down and the Sun is over our shoulder and we're looking back at you, and I promise that's the case.

097 59 00 Mattingly (CM comm): I guess my nav system isn't very good.

097 59 03 Duke (LM comm): Okay, Ken, let's just forget this. I think you went down below us, and - we're going to PDI attitude, and why don't you go to your comm attitude.

097 59 12 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay, what I'm trying to do is to keep from hitting you. I'd like to get a visual on you.

097 59 22 Young (LM comm): Well.

097 59 34 Duke (LM onboard): Why don't you just do a pitch - getting on the belly band and do a pitch around, John.

097 59 41 Young (LM onboard): [Garble] let's [garble] those breakers.

097 59 43 Duke (LM onboard): He should be below us. We've passed undocking.

097 59 46 Young (LM onboard): Yeah.

097 59 59 Duke (LM onboard): I'll load this.

098 00 00 Young (LM onboard): Yeah, load the PDI attitude.

098 00 12 Mattingly (CM comm): My computer display shows that you're - that you're behind me.

098 01 07 Young (LM comm): Okay. Well, there for a while, Ken, we were locked up.

098 01 08 Mattingly (CM comm): Can you put me against the sky or the ground, or did you?

098 01 13 Young (LM comm): You're against the sky about 5 degrees up - 6 degrees up.

098 01 18 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay.

098 01 48 Young (LM onboard): Hear the algorithm test?

098 01 50 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah, that's what I'm doing.

098 01 55 Mattingly (CM comm): I've got you. You were behind me.

098 02 01 Young (CM comm): We are, huh?

098 02 03 Mattingly (CM comm): I think we're about a half [garble].

098 02 05 Young (LM comm): The Sun's coming over our shoulder, that's all I know.

098 02 09 Mattingly (CM comm): Well, I guess behind is kind of relative.

098 02 13 Young (LM comm): I think you're right.

098 02 16 Duke (LM onboard): The clock counts backwards. Well, there you go.

098 02 38 Duke (LM onboard): Let's go to PDI attitude then.

098 02 41 Young (LM onboard): That's where we're going.

098 02 42 Duke (LM onboard): Okay. Do you wait to Pro - we can Pro on this - do an auto maneuver.

098 02 49 Young (LM onboard): We're there, Charlie.

098 03 03 Young (LM onboard): All we got to do is keep the reg light off, right?

098 03 05 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah. You can move the COAS to the overhead window.

098 03 12 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

098 03 21 Duke (LM onboard): I know they're not going to let us do PDI, though.

098 03 23 Young (LM onboard): Huh?

098 03 24 Duke (LM onboard): They're not going to let us do it on this rev.

098 03 25 Young (LM onboard): Yep, that's right.

098 03 33 Mattingly (CM comm): Looks to me like we're opening again.

098 03 37 Duke (LM onboard): There you are.

098 03 38 Mattingly (CM comm): I guess we must have passed our one rev.

098 03 39 Young (LM onboard): Got it?

098 03 41 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah, there he is, right out there.

098 03 44 Young (LM onboard): How far away?

098 03 45 Duke (LM onboard): Just yaw right and you got him.

098 03 49 Mattingly (CM comm): Do you still have comm, Orion?

098 03 51 Young (LM comm): Yeah, we do.

098 03 52 Duke (LM comm): Roger; we have a visual on you.

098 03 53 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay, you want me to try and station-keep [garble] it drift?

098 03 58 Young (LM comm): Say again.

098 04 02 Mattingly (CM comm): Would you rather I station-keep or just let it drift?

098 04 07 Young (LM comm): I wouldn't worry about it right now, Ken; we got to get a hold of the ground and see what they want to do.

098 04 12 Mattingly CM comm): I was just wondering if I'd be in a better posture if I kept stationary. That might make the abort situation on the PDI-2 better [garble] ago and one gimbal, we've got it made.

098 04 22 Young (LM comm): We'll see what they say.

098 04 30 Mattingly (CM comm): I guess we aren't going to be that far apart that it'll mess up your [garble].

098 04 37 Young (LM comm): I don't think so.

098 04 41 Mattingly (CM comm): What time are you supposed to get Lo - get AOS?

098 04 46 Duke (LM onboard): Tell him 98:10.

098 04 50 Young (LM comm): 98:10.

098 04 56 Mattingly (CM comm): Okay.

098 04 59 Young (LM onboard): Where is he?

098 05 00 Duke (LM onboard): Okay; let's start - let's go through this...

098 05 02 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

098 05 03 Duke (LM onboard): ...We don't have our helmets and gloves on, I guess there's no need to do that.

098 05 05 Young (LM onboard): No. VHF Antenna, Forward.

098 05 07 Duke (LM onboard): Okay; I got that.

098 05 08 Young (LM onboard): CB(11) Inverter 1, Close.

098 05 11 Duke (LM onboard): Closed.

098 05 13 Young (LM onboard): Select to Inverter 1.

098 05 15 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, Stab/Control - You want to go through this?

098 05 18 Young (LM onboard): Yeah, man.

098 05 20 Duke (LM onboard): Okay, Stab/Control (11) AELD, Close.

098 05 21 Young (LM onboard): Go.

098 05 23 Duke (LM onboard): Okay. Stab/Control Abort Stage, Close.

098 05 25 Young (LM onboard): Go.

098 05 26 Duke (LM onboard): Reset Engine Stop.

098 05 27 Young (LM onboard): Engine Stop is reset.

098 05 29 Duke (LM onboard): Set window bars.

098 05 31 Young (LM onboard): Set the crash bars.

098 05 34 Young (LM onboard): Oh, you!

098 05 38 Duke (LM onboard): Okay. I'll put the Batts - Batts on.

098 05 43 Young (LM onboard): I see why you taped yours down.

098 05 46 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah.

098 06 03 Duke (LM onboard): Put your attitude monitor on PGNS, John.

098 06 08 Young (LM onboard): Is that - is that the angle that you put them in, Charlie?

098 06 11 Duke (LM onboard): Those angles, I can't load them - I don't know - Those things have nothing to do with the FDAI.

098 06 13 Young (LM onboard): Okay; let me load it.

098 06 19 Duke (LM onboard): It ain't going to work. You can't read off of that and load Noun 22 and have it go to that attitude.

098 06 31 Young (LM onboard): Yeah, you're right. Well, what was the old nominal PDI attitude? That's close enough.

098 06 38 Duke (LM onboard): Well, if you call Verb 63...

098 06 40 Young (LM onboard): No.

098 06 41 Duke (LM onboard): Okay; Just maneuver to 114 Pitch.

098 06 43 Young (LM onboard): 314.

098 06 58 Duke (LM onboard): 002.

098 07 00 Young (LM onboard): 002 Roll.

098 07 04 Duke (LM onboard): And 340 Yaw.

098 07 06 Young (LM onboard): 340 Yaw.

098 07 46 Duke (LM onboard): Well, I'll tell you what. I'm going to turn off these ascent batteries. We don't need those. They ain't going to let us go.

098 08 32 Young (LM onboard): Okay.

098 08 34 Duke (LM onboard): Okay.

098 08 42 Young (LM onboard): You got it?

098 08 44 Duke (LM onboard): Got what?

098 08 45 Young (LM onboard): See Ken out there?

098 08 46 Duke (LM onboard): Yeah, I see Ken.

098 08 47 Young (LM onboard): Where is he?

098 08 52 Young (LM onboard): Yeah.

098 09 02 Duke (LM onboard): Is it just - is it just an SCS where the servo loop is out?

098 09 07 Young (LM onboard): Yeah, it's in both systems. The G&N won't do it either, Charlie.

098 09 12 Duke (LM comm): Hey, Ken, the G&N won't do the gimbal drive right either?

098 09 16 Mattingly (CM onboard): No, sir. It goes unstable too.

098 09 18 Duke (LM onboard): Oh.

098 09 19 Mattingly (CM comm): It's an honest-to-god instability in the servo loop.

098 09 32 Young (LM onboard): What should we acquire them on here? Should be - we should he getting them now, Charlie. 98:10.

098 09 39 Duke (LM onboard): Well, the Earth's - ain't come up yet.

098 09 41 Young (LM onboard): Okay. Let me see the Timeline Book.

098 09 45 Duke (LM onboard): There you go.

098 09 50 Young (LM onboard): Okay. Reset the window bars; AELD, close. Throttle Control to Auto and Cdr. That's Go. Throttle is Min.

098 09 59 Mattingly (CM comm): It turns out I got a switch out of place over here. I don't know whether something could come of that, but I'm pretty convinced that it's got to be a hardware-type problem.

098 10 12 Young (LM comm): Yeah, I don't - I don't think a switch can do that to you.

098 10 16 Mattingly (CM onboard): I don't think so. I'd like to find the switch right now

098 10 21 Young (LM onboard): Did you try both sets of AC 1 and AC 2 on it?

098 10 23 Mattingly (CM onboard): Yes, sir.

098 10 24 Young (LM comm): Yeah, I figured.

098 10 38 Duke (LM onboard): There it comes.

098 10 45 Duke (LM comm): Okay, Ken, we're getting Earthrise.

098 10 47 Mattingly (CM comm): Yeah, I got my high gain set up.
