Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

We just wanted you to open the circuit on fuel cell 1.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. She's off the line.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. We see you getting close to gimbal lock there. We'd like you to bring up all quad Cs on MAIN A, quad C-1, C-2, C-3, C-4 on MAIN A, and also bring B-3 and B-4 up on MAIN A.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. Do you read?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. Can you tell us anything about the venting, where it is coming from, what window you see it at.

Fred Haise (LMP)

It's coming out of window 1, right now, Jack, and could you give me the thrusters again?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

We'd like—on MAIN A, we'd like Charlie 1, 2, 3, and 4. Also Bravo 3 and 4 on MAIN A.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, 13; this is Houston. We'd like you to go to your G&C checklist, the pink pages, 1-5. Do powerdown until we get a Delta of 10 amps. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Jack, say again that—… for the powerdown; it's not in the pink pages, the 1-5.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. We'd like you to go down that powerdown procedure until you get a Delta of 10 amps. Over.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. Did you copy our powerdown request?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Roger, Jack. We're—yes, we're doing it right now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Where did you say that was located, Jack?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

That's in your systems checklist, page 1-5.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

And, 13, you might also check for those pages in your launch checklist. They're emergency pages; pink pages, 1-5, and we'd like you to power down until you get —

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. That was in the launch checklist, Jack.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. Power down until you get an amperage of 10 amps less than what you got now. Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Jack. Are you happy with the amps we have now?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Jack, and on this page 1-5, we proceeded right down the list, all the way down; we're right now at BMAG number 2 is in WARM UP.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. We copy BMAG 2 in WARM UP. We'll follow you through.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, and something is giving us a reach, Jack, both in pitch and roll, so I'm suspecting that maybe it's whatever it is that's venting back there. I've had to use DIRECT in order to stabilize this, and as soon as I do, we're starting to pick up rates again. Can you pick up any jets firing?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Stand by. What direction are your rates in, Jack?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

It's negative pitch and negative roll.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. We need to get some more instrumentation up. We'd like you to put INVERTER 1 on both AC BUSES. Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Okay, you got INVERTER 1 on both AC BUSES now. And Jack, one of the items that we turned off was the—all the fuel cell pumps. Okay, and you might let us know when fuel cell 2 needs its pump back; we ought to take care of that guy.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. Okay, Fred, we want FUEL CELL 2 PUMPS to AC1, please.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

FUEL CELL 2 to AC1. Roger.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

OMNI Charlie, please, 13.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, 13. We've got lots and lots of people working on this; we'll give you some dope as soon as we have it, and you'll be the first one to know.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Jack, and the weird configuration we're sitting in now is we have the hatch installed, we still have the probe and drogue inside the command module, and we're going to stay in this situation until you—kind of give us an okay to reinstall the probe and drogue.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. We'll give you an answer.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Or, if necessary, to use the LM consumables.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

13, we'd like to have you put thruster Alfa 3 on MAIN A, please.
