Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Houston. We'll punch off at 141 plus 30.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack. We copy and we concur.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Houston. Do we have a GO for PYRO ARM?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Odyssey, Houston. We can give you a GO if you'll put the LOGIC ON momentarily first.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. The SECs LOGIC is on.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Key moment Jettisoning the lunar module: Okay. Just copied that, and you are GO for PYRO ARM.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Watch gimbal lock there, Jack.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Odyssey, Houston. Request OMNI Bravo.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack. We'll have a pad for you in a few minutes. We're getting data now on the tracking, and although we suspect the changes from your preliminary pad will be very small, we recommend that you hold off on initializing the EMS until we get you the final pad. Over.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Houston. The sextant star check passes.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Houston, copy. Good show. That was some P52, Jack.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Yes. I was kind of lucky, I guess.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Give you a big gold star for that.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Hey, Joe. We're standing by to copy your new pad.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack. It'll be a few minutes yet. We want to get it right up to speed.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. I can proceed with EMS check, can't I, Joe?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, Jack. You can go ahead with that.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Odyssey, Houston. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. Your CABIN is looking real good. We recommend you turn the SUIT COMPRESSOR to OFF now. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Going OFF. Boy, it's nice and quiet in here.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, real good. Incidentally, your power is looking real good also, Jim.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Odyssey, Houston. I have your final entry pad when you are ready.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston. Ready to copy.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Mid-PAC, 000152, 000; 142:38:19, 178; and you recall that's GET moonset and Moon-check attitude. NOUN 61, minus 21.66, minus 165.37; 05.2; 3621.1, 6.20; 1119.7, 36291; 142:40:46; 00:30; the next four are N/A; DO is 4.00, 02:20; 00:19, 03:38, 07:59. The rest of the pad is N/A for this one. You are lift vector up at the very bottom. And the remarks all remain the same; if you want me to copy them, let me know; otherwise, you can read back. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Entry pad as follows: Mid-PAC, 000152, 000; 142:38:19, 178; minus 21.66, minus 165.37; 05.2; 3621.1, 6.20; 1119.7, 36291; 142:40:46; 00:30; all the DLS are N/A. DO is 4.00, 02:20; 00:19, 03:38, 07:59. All the rest are N/A, except lift vector which is up; and I have the the …

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. That's a tiny hair shallower than we had you before, but it's based on solid tracking, and it still is lift vector up comfortably.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. We never did bring that angle up, did we?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

No, actually, we didn't.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Odyssey, Houston. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack. We'd like P00 and ACCEPT for your final state vector.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And, Odyssey, Houston. We're also sending you a final PIPA bias update and clock increment. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Fine; thank you, Joe. How does the LM look? Are you still tracking it?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

All I've heard was that it's that the cabin was holding pressure. I haven't heard anything more. And, Odyssey, we're ready for you to warm up the BMAG number 2's at your discretion and we're curious whether the Moon check attitude is good. Over.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Yes, Joe, it's coming down. I got just about 45 degrees now and it's coming on down.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Odyssey, Houston. The computer is yours. Over.
