Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Vance, I do have the procedure for stopping the battery charge. And do you want me to copy this procedure now, or do you want me to come back and give you the volt, amps, and time and—after I complete this termination?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. Just—just give us the volts and amps just before you start the termination of the procedure, and understand you say you have the charge—the procedure for taking the charge off. Is that affirm?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. And just give us a hack on the time —

Jack Swigert (CMP)

And you want to—you want to review it at all?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Negative. Unless you want me to. I'll tell you what; I could run through it very quickly just to verify that we're getting started off on the correct path here.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Yes. Okay, the first four or five things that I have is panel BAT CHARGE to OFF on panel 3; AC INVERTER 2, OFF; panel 5: MAIN BUS TIE, BAT A/C ON; panel 250: CB BAT A POWER ENTRY/POSTLANDING, open; panel 275: INVERTER POWER 2, MAIN B, open; and then, the—just to go ahead and reverse the position of the switches and circuit breakers that I started out with, and these don't have to be in reverse order. Is that Charlie?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger, that's—that's Charlie. Have at it.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, we'll get a volts and amps right now.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Vance. The volts and amps: 39.4; amps, 1.25.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack. We copy that. Incidentally —

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. We're going up to termin—Go ahead, Vance.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Never mind, Jack. I'll bring this up later when you've finished the procedure.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. I'm going off the air; I'll put Fred-o on. I'm going to stop the battery charge.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Now, how do you read, Vance?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Hey, loud and clear, Fred. Understand you've been doing some spring housecleaning, moving stowage around up there.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Boy, you wouldn't believe this LM right now; it's nothing but bags from floor to ceiling.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Hey, that brings up a question. We were wondering where you guys plan to stow the probe and drogue? It occurred to us that one possibility was to stow it in the LM, down about where the LMP normally stands, underneath the IS—ISAer. Perhaps you have a better idea. Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Yes, I do, Vance. … would go in the LM, but I thought maybe we ought to stow it where the CDR stands. How's that?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. I can tell that you're just getting—getting that one over because Jim just got off the loop.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Yes, he's sleeping. No, that's—that's actually where we normally had been stowing it for normal LM JETTs.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay, and—Hey, we just—we'll record that, and figure that you'll stow the probe and drogue over in the—where the CDR stands. We have a—a change to this—equipment transfer list that I just read up to Jim. Why don't you make a note of this one item? Forget about the LM

Fred Haise (LMP)

Stand by; stand by 1.

Fred Haise (LMP)

I think Jack hauled off the piece of paper with that—all that on it. Why don't you hold it until Jack gets done doing the battery charge?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

And, Fred, request PCM on LO bit rate, now.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. And there was one piece of flight data that we needed that we didn't bring along this time.

Fred Haise (LMP)

That's a big book with a lot of just plain old blank pages in it.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Yes, when you—when you get off nominal, why you just need scratch paper, don't you?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Vance. I got the stowage list now.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay, I gave you two lists —

Fred Haise (LMP)

And Jack's got—and Jack said he's completed—the—secured the battery charge now.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay, and we're recording the time that that was complete. You have two lists there, one is LM to CM equipment transfer and the second list is the reverse. Request you scratch the last item on the first list, which is returning used bags to the CM.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. We didn't have any of those, so that didn't pose any problem anyway.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Vance. Aquarius is back on.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack. Understand you completed securing the battery charge. Now if you are ready to copy, Jack, I would like to give you the two changes that we have to the powerup for the CM procedure. Over.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Vance. You say you have some changes in the procedures that I used before to get telemetry and to check out the CSM system?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Yes, that's correct, Jack; they're pretty simple. About halfway through the procedure, we have a step on panel 3, which is POWER AMPL, HIGH; we'd like to change that to POWER AMPL, LOW.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Copy. POWER AMPL, LOW.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

And the next change, Jack, is panel 275. Scratch the step “CB MAIN B, BAT B, close—BAT BUS B, close.”

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. You want to delete the step “CB MAIN B, BAT BUS B, close.”
