Jim Lovell (CDR)

Volts, 39.3; amps, 1.2 zip.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. We copy 39.3 and 1.20. And, Jim, I've got one more item for information for you. At—In about 45 minutes or so, you will get an H2O quantity caution light on the descent tank. We expect this. It occurs at 16 percent. And it's no problem, because we intend to run the tank dry just for drill. To reset the—the light, on panel 2, just set the O2 H2O QUANTITY MONITOR to the CAUTION/WARNING RESET position and the light will go away. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. I understand. We're going to get a H2O warning light here shortly, and I'll reset it.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston; go ahead.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Joe, we got the WATER warning light.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. The experts would like another volt and amp reading.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay; have them stand by.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston; go ahead.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Voltage is 39.3, amps 1.26.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Joe, you might pass to our friends in Crew Systems that lunar boots make great footwarmers.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

I guess you need them up there, too. Is—is anybody sleeping in the command module right now, Jim?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Negative, Joe. It's just too cold in there. I got Fred stashed over here to my left. He's asleep and Jack's …

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

(Laughter) Well, we figured we were in that mode now.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, this is Earth. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Go ahead, Earth; Aquarius here.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. Earth is here, also; and, Jim, it is time for another one of those volt/amp checks. For your information, we've got that battery back up to 30 amp-hours now. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Hey, that sounds great. Jack's gone up to check it.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

You know, I think Aquarius is …

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

We've got garble now, Jim; I'm sorry.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Voltage 39.3, amps 1.26.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Jim, Houston. Have you guys put on any extra clothes to try and ward off the nip of Jack Frost? Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Well, the lunar boots and two pair of underwear, and everyone is … crawl into their sleep restraints.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We're a little reluctant to break out the suits.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Yes, that's understandable. You can always use them if you have to. I guess it's pretty hard to get extra coveralls on, huh?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Well, Joe, I didn't think we had any extra inflight garments aboard, but we're going to check right now.
