Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Joe. As I read that, at 74 hours we're going to do an AOT Sun check at detent 2, which is going to require the rendezvous radar out of the way. And we use P52 AUTO maneuver to get there, or at least the angles out of that, and if this passes within 1 degree, you're saying the platform is okay for the maneuver, and we won't need a subsequent P52. But even if it is okay, you'll give us a star which we can use for our check when we're in darkness. If this check flunks, you'll pass us on up then an Earth/Moon aline procedure.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. That's correct, except the aline procedure that we're working on is an Earth/Sun aline, and other than that, that's correct. Incidentally, this TC plus 2 maneuver looks like it will still be around a 900-foot-per-second maneuver and that it will get you back to the mid-Pacific line at 142 hours.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. That was an Earth/Sun check, John. We're getting a little close to the Moon now. And the TC plus 2 maneuver still looks about 900 foot per second to get us at mid-PAC, at about 142 hours.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. We got a good batch of ranging and now we'd like you to reverse the configuration, RANGING to OFF, VOICE FUNCTION to DOWN VOICE BACKUP, POWER AMPLIFIER circuit breaker out; we'll be talking to you.

Fred Haise (LMP)

DOWN VOICE BACKUP with the POWER AMP breaker open now. How do you read?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

We read you satisfactorily, Fred.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Jim and Jack are in the upstairs bedroom taking a nap now.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

I didn't know that was upstairs.

Fred Haise (LMP)

We have the first space station.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And, Houston, Aquarius.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Go ahead.

Fred Haise (LMP)

One other thing you might have somebody look at—I don't want to bother the guys upstairs—the drain hose that we've got in the command module, I wonder if we can find out if it will plug into the PLSS and in which case we can keep transferring—later on at least—the command module water into the LM via the PLSS.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. You're almost up with us. We are looking real hard at getting water from the command module waste tank into the PLSS, using that hose and then dumping it from the PLSS into the LM ascent tank, and we think it is feasible; we're checking it out to make sure.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. I have time to do another maneuver here, Joe.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. Let me verify that.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Fred, Houston. That is verified. You can go ahead with the yaw maneuver.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Just made another maneuver. We allowed for a little too much roll, there. I wonder if that's too much, or should I try to take it out now that I got it stopped.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Fred, this is Houston. —

Fred Haise (LMP)

Twenty degrees roll left—Yes. All right; go ahead.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. I didn't copy the beginning of your message.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, I—I was talking to Jim, there.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. Listen, Charlie Duke wants to talk to you—to you about the AOT star check; and, so that we can have good COMM, I'd like to reconfigure with the POWER AMPLIFIER circuit breaker in and the VOICE FUNCTION switch to VOICE and while we're at it, we'd like the RANGING FUNCTION switch to RANGING. Over.

Charlie Duke

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Charlie Duke

Roger, Fred-o. Reading you —

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Houston, Aquarius. Go ahead.

Charlie Duke

Okay, Fred-o. Reading you 5-by. The procedure I'm going to read up to you is a Sun check for the—to see if we're going to need an alinement or not. If you'll get out your G&N dictionary and open it to P52, page 34, we'll start at the bottom. Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Sounds like you broke out, Charlie.

Charlie Duke

Yes, finally, Fred-o. I've no longer got the red spots.

Charlie Duke

Okay. Stand by, Aquarius. We'll be back with you momentarily.

Charlie Duke

Aquarius, Houston. You ready with your G&N dictionary? Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. I'm on page 34 now, looking at P52.

Charlie Duke

Okay, Fred-o. At the bottom of the page, we want step 1, on the flashing 0406, we want an option 3, and that'll pull us over to 6; and, on the 5025, we want you to do the ENTER on the 5025, and that'll bring up flashing 0170, and load in R1 200. Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Let me see if I'm with you. We call up P52 and, on the flashing 0406, we PRO on a 3 REFSMMAT which leads us to a flashing 5025. We ENTER on that. On the flashing 0170, we want to ENTER a 200.

Charlie Duke

That's affirmative; and after that, you PRO on that, and you come up with a flashing 0688, and we'll have to load NOUN 88. And if you're ready to copy, I have the Sun half-unit vectors at 74 hours GET. Over.

Charlie Duke

Okay. At Sun half-unit vectors, X, R1, is plus 0.45498, Y plus 19024, Z plus 08250. Over.
