you read an EVAP OUT of 58 degrees? 

00 05 111 lU IMP When I first read it, it was not pumping, hut 

then it still was at 58 till I turned the 
evaporator on. There wasn't a great deal of 
time there between when I turned the pumps 
hack, on on the primary loop and went to EVAP, 
so maybe it just didn't get a chance to settle 
down.

with the site here, Walt. 

I'm already switched.- How are you - oh, you're 
reading me S-bani? 

GUAM (RE7 5) 
Okay. We're real good. We read you Duplex B 
real fine. 

Roger. I'm reading you five-by-five. Do you 
read me Duplex B?

00 12 06 27 IMP This is Apollo 7- We temporarily had our 

primary loop back working on the line. It is 
■beginning to look like either the primary water 
flow valve - for a while we thought it was flux 
shutdown. I'm wondering if we start playing 
with it, eventually we will get it to come 
hack lip. The steam pressure reading was normal 
for a while, and it was controlling around a 
temperature of about U3. Right now, we are 
pegged low again. It looks like it is possibly 
the water control section of the 2^0 controller. 

00 12 07 05 CC Walt, say again y cur last sentence there. It 

looks like what? 

00 12 07 09 LMP * I Believe it is probably getting down to the 

water control section of the 2h0 controller. 
Also, we have a DT0 to accomplish here. The 
CRI0 stratification for hydrogen. It is - both 
tanks are within 90 plus or minus 5 percent of 
the hydrogen, and the procedure calls to let 
the pressure rise to about 2£>0 to 265 , and I 
believe that is the spec number. I would like 
the EE COM to tell me how high these pressures 
have been rising before they - the heaters shut

Anybody come up with any suggestions on our

for activating the secondary loop whenever the

I am reading almost - radiator outlet tempera-*-

I would like to hold to not activating the

00 20 08 13 Cffi" Roger. 1 was Just doing a little star examina- 

tion here at sunset with the sun at my tack, so 
to speak, and you can see stars - qiiite a few — 
out the telescope; however, the minute you move 
the telescope controls , a lot of shiny white 
particles flutter out, and they obscure the field 
of view. I know what that is; apparently, these 
particles are some moisture in the optics assem- 
bly that get out when you're moving around in 
shaft notion, and they go out and obscure what 
you're looking at if the sun is shining on them. 

00 20 08 50 CC Roger. I understand that you can see stars in 

the telescope okey with the sun at your back; 
however, when you move, the optics in shaft - 
their white particles come off and sort of cloud 
the view. 

00 20 09 05 CMP That's right. Looks like it's snowing out there, 

and it would be impossible to do cny kind of 
useful alignment with a situation like that. 
Also, at times when the sun is more direct on 
the side where the optics are, it appears to be 
either a lot ef light leak or sun shining reflect- 
ing down inside the optics assembly, but except 
at near sundown with the sun at the opposite side 
from the optics , you just don't see anything when 



Page 98 

you look out there. You just see a big 'blur of 
light. 

00 20 09 l(i CC Roger. I understand that you apparently have 

something that loots like a light leak when the 
aun is directly on the side of the - is that the 
side of the spacecraft where the optics lire 
located? 

00 20 09 56 CMP Oh, I don't know if it's directly on that side or 

not; it' 3 kind of hard to tell, hut at times when 
the sun is Tip and we get some random drifting 
attitude here, I've looked in to see if I could 
see anything, and it was Just near impossible. 
There was just a lot of light in the telescope. 
It had the appearance of a light leak around - 
somewhere in the assembly. I don't knov if .that's 
true or not or perhaps it's Just the reflection 
coming in, but it makes it hard to see anything.

telemetry readouts, ve feel or suspect that 
I PIPA counts are not getting into the CMC. 
We're Tseen monitoring practically zero. Now 



Page 101 

this is still sort of in ferment, but it looks 
lite now they would lite to have an RCS burn 
completed to perform a check on the T PIPA's. 
If 30, this will be done on the next rev over 
Texas. 

00 20 52 Oh CC Apollo 7, Houston. This would be a sort of 

small burn plus Y, then minus T, then total 
DELTA-V about 5 feet per second. 

00 20 52 15 CME' Bill, I missed practically your whole trans-

00 20 52 31 CM? Roger. It's loud and clear. 

00 20 52 33 CC Right. Based on telemetry readouts, we suspect 

the Y-axis, Y-axis PIPA counts" are not getting 
into the CMC. In order to check this out, we 
would like to do a small RCS translation plus Y 
and then minus Y. Total t°st will consume about 
10 pounds of fuel, and it's proposed that this 
be performed at 22 plus 23 and will be over 
Texas on your next pass. 
00 20 53 12 CMP Okay. Twenty-two plus 23; you will want a plus Y 

and a minus Y. Do you want us to have a program 
vp like kj t then? 



Page 103 

00 20 53 21 CC Okay- I'll go through the procedure that is 

propose* here now. Step 1, ve would lite to - 
-the test to he done in POOi also, we would like to 
hare A/C roll EKABIED. Then the attitude would 
be roll ISO, pitch 326, and yaw zero. With that 
attitude, ve would like a plus Y translation for 
T seconds , then turn the A/C roll back off. 
0C 20 5 3 23 CMP Wait a second, just hold the phone. You want POO, 

you want A/C roll EHABLED, I got 180 , 3260 roll; . 
and after that , I was replying on that , but you 
were talking. Would you say again all that after 
the attitude? 

00 20 53 35 CC Soger. Sorry about that. I will go a little 

bit slower. Roger. I'll go back over it. You 
got it copied correctly. We do want it in POO, 
end we would like the SCS channel A/C roll 
EiKlBLED also for the test. Attitude, roll l80, 
pitch 326, yew zero. With that attitude, trans- 
late plus Y T seconds; then wait 30 seconds, 
30 seconds ; then translate minus Y for 7 seconds ; 
then turn the A/C roll channel back off. 
00 20 55 tl CM? Roger. Icu have a terrible squeal in there, 

Bill: I don't know what it is. I understand, 
and you went plus Y for T seconds , then pause 
30 seconds, then minus Y T seconds. Bow at what 
time again did you want this , 22 plus how many?

00 21 hj U8 CMP Roger. A couple of hour?, ago - I neglected to 

teil you before that, and I'm sorry - we had an 
anomaly up here. We got an AC bus 1 drop out, 
and all we did was reset, it, and it kept on run- 
ning; and we never did see anything anomalous 
other than that, other th?n we confirm that the 
voltage has dropped off and the inverter had 
come off the line apparently. 

00 21 1*8 10 CC Okay. You had an AC bus 1 drop out. Yot^ reset 

it , and it was okay, but you did confirm it was 
a bona fide malfunction because the voltage did 
drop. 

00 21 U8 21 CMP That's right. All three phases were - well, 

were pegged on the bottom of the meter, and all 
we did was hit RESET and punch the warning lights 
off, and it kept right on running. 

00 21 U8 33 CC Okay. Thank ycu very much. That is copied. 

00 21 18 36 CHF Okay. We've had no trouble with it since. 

Everything's been normal.

Loud and clear, Jack. Go. 
Okay. You are real fine now, Walt; we have 
just switched to. S-band. 

Okay. This is Donn. Everything was pretty nom- 
inal as far as the solutions were concerned. 
We had a DSKY solution of 3.6 to the nidcourse, 
mnn Walt had a 1.7 solution on his charts. We 
split the difference and did 2 feet per second 
aft and then slid us right in there; and except 
for a little bit of cross plane correction that 
Wally had to make at the tail end, we were nom- 
inal right up the pike. According to HOOT UO 
estimates of fuel use, we used 76 feet per 
second. However, HOOT fcofintegrates velocity 



Page 152 

even when you are not thrusting , so I think ve 
used Bomevhat less than that, probably on the 
order at 60 to 65 feet per second. 
01 06 01 31 CC Soger. Copy that. 

01 06 01 36 CMP Roger. On PCM high data, we had a loss of 

contact with the S-XVB Just prior to TPI; and 
In the confusion here, I didn*t get high hit 
rate data. The TPI born - we had high hit rate 
data in the nidcourse burn and the final BCS 
/thrusting on in. 
Okay. Copy that.

about shuffling this sisep cycle around a little 
hit. Kind of looks to me at least - and speak 
up if you don't like the sound of it - hut ve 
have got a hell of & lot lost motion here when 
you might hetter he getting a little rest. 

01 13 05 52 CDR We are getting kind of pooped, and I think that 

is why we started off the way we did today.

01 13 35 23 CC Hello, Apollo 7. This is Houston. 

01 13 35 39 CC Apollo 7. Houston. 

01 13 35 k3 CDR What do you say there, Tom? 

01 13 35 *5 CC Roger. Wally, real good rendezvous you pulled 

off today. 

01 13 35 fc9 CDR les, that's a little more traumatic than that 

other bird we used to fly. 

01 13 35 53 CC DMerstand. We were talking down here, and 

ve'd like to discuss free flight ... period 
of time about looking ahead in the flight plan, 
about the possibility of you all going all 
three crewmen on the sleep cycle. I Just vant 
to discuss it for down the line, vhat Deke was 
trying to say. What do you think about it? 

01 13 36 19 CDR I don't think I'd he afraid to do it on another 

flight, but we're kind of reluctant right now. 

01 13 36 25 CC Okay. 

01 13 36 28 CDR The machine is working real well, Tom. 

01 13 36 32 CZ I was looking at all the block data about 

1|0 hours and also waste water dump at kl, and 



Page 182 



it's kind of quiet time after that for another 
k or 5 hours. 

01 13 36 k& CDR Very good. This IYA is no prohlem at all- 

in fact, it is an asset. 
01 13 36 55 CC Okay. 

01 13 36 57 CDR All the problems ve "or r led about the space- 

craft picking up notions from the crev, no such 
thing. We can knock around the capsule like 
mad. You get to he quite a gymnast. 

01 13 3T 11 CC I want to ask you a question. How are the 

sleep hags vorking out? 

01 13 3T 15 CDR Hot so hot. 

01 13 37 17 CC Okay. 

01 13 37 18 CDR lou miss the 1 g lying down. With the seat 

belts resisting, you are held down, and you 
feel tetter controlled and better contained, 
I guess. Sleeping bag, you try to find a place 
to stick your head or your arm to hold on. 

01 13 37 38 CC Our analysis is the couch is probably a little 

better than the sleep bag. 

01 13 37 ^3 CDR That is correct. 

01 13 37 hh CC Okay. 

01 13 37 VT IMP We find the lightweight headsets are preferable 

to CCMH carriers, too. 

01 13 37 51 CC Right. Reviewed the flight plan here. Under- 

stand when you went to the lightweight headsets - 



Page 183 

01 13 37 57 CDS Tes. The cables for the COMM carrier is very 

objectionable and Jabs you in the neck and the 
i shoulder and keeps pulling your head around. 

01 13 38 07 CC AH right. 

01' 13 38 11 CDE We are not at all hungry hy the way. He are 

trying to get some exercise to keep ourselves 
going. That Beer-Genie's a heck of a good deal. 

01 13 38 23 CC Works out real good in zero gt 

01 13 38 26 CDR Hate to admit that, hut it is probably one of 

the best spacy things ve have had in years. 

01 13 38 31 CC Okay. Okay. On the sleep thing, Wally, it 

is strictly your option, obviously. We Just 
got to thinking maybe it vill work out better, 
give you a little more, longer sessisons of it. 

01 13 39 18 CDR Houston, Apollo 7» 

01 13 39 20 CC Go ahead. 

01 13 39 23 CDR We don't think we ought to SYNC Hasselblad here; 

we may be able to take one a little later. 

01 jl3 39 30 CC Roger. Understand about the camera. 

01 13 39 35 IMP Hey, Tom. I would like to log some photographs 

here on magazine Q, starting the same ... the 
same ... We started shooting about over the

01 23 1*6 29 CC Okay. That's real fine news. 

01 23 U6 32 IMP In general, it's been going real well up here. 

It's reasonably comfortable: air temperature 
is fine, the humidity is fine. We're Just 
perking along; and with a little extra time, 
everybody is in pretty good shape. Little 
exercise now and then so everybody is in good 
shape. 

01 23 1*6 52 CC Okay. That's fine. 

01 23 1*6 5 1 * CMP I got 7 solid hours of sleep last night; and 

Walt Just had about six, and he's up and 
Wally* s still asleep. 

01 23 1*7 01 CC Okay. That's fine.

tively comfortable in here. Several things - 
■mpn things we've noticed along the way, but 



Page 216 

most of the things ve've worked out ahead of 
time, it looks like. 

01 23 2*7' 19 CC Okay. Copy. 

GUMMAS through BERMUDA (REV 31) 

01 23 fcT 21 LMP I feel very strongly on the sleeping bit. The 

Bleeping tag is not as good to have the 
shoulder harness and lap belt to strap you down 
against something, and I think ve all feel 
v-»Ti/t» that way. 

01 23 1»7 3^ CC Okay. Copy that. 

01 23 1*7 hi LMP Other than that, I think it io rather amazing 

hov well and quickly we all been able to adjust 
to IVA. 

01 23 kl 52 CC Okay. 

01 23 k8 "ik LMP You might log that - from my personal observa- 

tion at least - that there's far too much sweet 
in the diet, and I feel like ve nave more food 
than we need. I think Wally feels the same way. 
Donn seems to be eating most of his, though. 

01 23 h& lh CC Okay. 

01 23 U8 18 LMP I would suspect that in another couple of days 

I'm probably Just going to skip a whole meal in 
order to keep up with him. 

01 23 W 26 CC Okay. Copy. 

01 23 U8 35 LMP Another comment is that the exerciser is very, 

very good thing to make you feel better up 
here. I find that after we're up here - about 



Page 217 

the middle of the first day - ve started notic- 
ing that your lower abdominal muscles seem to 
he a little sore. Alvays floating around in 
this seat position, and there is certainly 
enough strain taken off them, and now they kinds 
vant to bunch up, and if ve exercise once in 
awhile, we feel a lot better. 

01 23 k9 03 CC That'B a good note. 

01 23 ^9 l6 LHP Did you read that, Houston? 

01 23 k9 18 CC Roger. Copy that. That's real fine news. 

01 23 It 9 29 CC And Walt, sometime - Walt and Donn, sometime 

after Wally gets awake and the three of you 
have a real good chance, we'd like to get a 
good status check on your windows. 

01 23 U9 U0 MP Roger. I can give you that now if you'd like. 

01 23 U9 h2 CC Okay. Let's do. 

01 23 U9 k6 IMP Okay. Window number 5 is still - I'd say - in 

very good shape. Hothing compared to the pic- 
tures I've seen of a bad window in Gemini. 
Window number k is still in good shape - I 
mean, no concern about taking pictures out of 
it at all. Window number 3 has been continually 
deteriorating since about the first day, and 
you can see moisture collected on the inside of 
the outer pane and kinda spotty in the middle. 
You can see horizons out of it, but not a heck 



Page 218 

of a lot more. Window number 2 is still in 
good shape. On the left front side of it, you 
can see a slight amount of discoloration that 
may eventually work its way in on it. And 
window number 1 is similar to window number 5 
except that it seems to have a lot of these 
little snow flakes settling on it. Window 
number 1 is right close to the urine dump and 
probably is coming from there. 
01 23 51 03 CC Okay. Copy that. 

01 23 51 23 CC Okay. We'll have you all the way across the 

States; we'll just keep standing by. 

01 23 51 28 IMP Okay. You might make note that I haven't had 

any problems with food bags yet. Several 
comments though; that pill is supposed to be 
broken up, and you're doing well when you get 
the pill inside the bag. I don't know anybody 
who's got fingers strong enough to break it. 
Also, the gum doesn't have any Velcro on it 
whenever it shows up, and it's turning out that 
it's pretty significant that everything have a 
patch of Velcro on it. 

01 23 52 02 CC Okay. We copy that. 

01 23 52 6k IMP Also, the wet wipe that's packed with the fecal 

bags, they do not have Velcor on it, and they 
need it. 



Page 219 

01 23 52 15 CC Okay. 

01 23 52 22 LMP The temperature Inside the cabin has teen very 

comfortable. Wally and Bonn put on their in- 
flight coveralls. They got out of the suit. 
I've been in my GWG- ever since, and I guess when 
we start vith the show business, I'll have to 
get dressed for it. 
Okay. Copy that. 
Apollo 7 > Houston. 
Roger, Houston. Go. 

On the G&N control check that you were asking 
about - over Hawaii - that will be done over 
the states in high bit rate and real time. It 
won't require any DSE operation other than 
normal.

02 00 h2 31 IMP He's listening. He's writing. 

02 00 U2 3 *t CC Okay. There will be seme procedures, so you 

might vant to copy this down. What we would 
like to do is to determine the status of the 
primary water holler, and then we - therefore, 
we intend to activate the primary evaporator 
over the stateside pass this revolution. So 
when bringing the evaporator on, Walt, we want 
you to open the back pressure valve manually for 
2 seconds, since we're not sure how much water 
is In the evaporator, and this would minimize 
any possibility of carrying excess water through 
the steam duct and possibly freezing it. Then 
on the ground cue over the States, we would 
like you to first put the glycol evaporator 
HgO flow switch to AUTO. Second, put the gly- 
col evaporator steam pressure to MUTUAL. Third, 
go DECREASE for 2 seconds. Observe the tem- 
perature decay on the primary evaporator outlet. 
If you don't get any decay, we vant to go 
DECREASE for 2 seconds more. If you get a 
temperature decrease, then wait 30 seconds; 
place the evaporator steam pressure to AUTO. 
We'll watch it all from the ground, hut if 
you observe any anomalies in your out-of -ground 
conta, we would like you to trouble shoot per 



Page 22U 

the malfunction procedures recorded on high bit 
rate on DSE and report it to the next site. 
And if you want any of this repeated, I'll go 
over it with you - a little slower. 

02 00 kk 20 IMP I could write about half that fast, and I only- 

got the first three steps, Jack. Back pressure 
open for 2 seconds; do you want me to do that 
prior to getting into the States? 

02 00 kk 29 CC So, we will do this when we hit the States, 

so we can watch it here. We will tell you 
when we've got good data; and then when you 
bring it on, open it for 2 seconds. This will 
»Q1 be on ground cue. And then - I'll read these 
steps again, a little slower, Halt. First 
step, HgO flow to AUTO; second, steam pressure 
to MAHUAL; third, decrease steam pressure switch 
to DECREASE far an additional 2 seconds. Ob- 
serve for a temperature decay on the EVAP OUT 
temperature. Okay. If you don't get any 
temperature decay, decrease the steam pressure 
for 2 additional seconds. Then, if you get a 
temperature decrease on the EVAP COT tempera- 
ture, wait 30 seconds; then place the glycol 
EVAP OUT steam pressure to AUTO. Okay. If you 
get any anomalies and you're out of ground 
contact , troubleshoot it per the malfunction

procedures, recording it on high hit rate, and 
we'll pick you up at the next site. 
02 00 k6 2h IMP Roger. Jack, I got step k. Decrease steam 

pressure for 2 seconds, watch the glycol 
EVAP OUT temperature decrease, and disconnect 
set. 

02 00 k6 32 CC Okay. After temp decrease is observed, wait 

30 seconds; then place the steam pressure 
switch to AUTO. 

02 00 h6 55 IMP I have here decrease something for 2 additional 

seconds. 

02 00 fcT 02 CC Okay. Let me go over it again. 

02 00 1>T 10 IMP Two seconds. 

02 00 kl 12 CC Okay. Tou go to MANUAL, decrease the steam 

pressure for 2 seconds; that's step 3. If 
you don't get any temperature decay, decrease - 
third, decrease steam pressure switch to 
DECREASE for an additional 2 seconds. That's 
step k. 

00 00 hj 35 IMP Roger. I understand that if I don't get any 

pressure decrease - temperature decrease in 
how long a time period? 

02 00 VT k& CC About 30 seconds - give it 30 seconds, Walt, to 

note any temperature change. 

02 00 VT 57 IMP Roger. The back pressure open for 2 seconds 

on your cue ; water flow to AUTO on cue . Steam 
pressure to MANUAL, decrease steam pressure 



Page 226 

for 2 seconds. Watch the glycol E7AP OUT 
temp decrease; if no temp decrease In 30 sec- 
onds, then I - decrease steam pressure for 
another 2 seconds. If I get a decrease, I 
wait 30 seconds and then go to AUTO. Any 
anomalies, I troubleshoot .

Roger, Houston. We're drifting in attitude now. 
Roger. Real fine. Vally, when we hit the 
States, we'd lite to switch over to a deadband 
as long as we are holding attitude for this 
radiator - or evaporator evaluation. We'd like 
to switch over to a deadband, and we'll kill 
that DTO, that G&N attitude control test at the 
same time. I will give you a call over Cali- 
fornia when we would like to set in the rate.

02 02 l»3 55 CDR The deadband is expensive; it's about 5 pounds 

an hour, and we've done that during the rendez-

for a nHn-lnniTn of 10 minutes. 
Bill, that's about 1 pound. 
I mean — 

Prior to the SPS burns about 5 to 10 minutes 
each. - We're saying that SPS will be depleted. 
And by the way, Houston, Hawaii is part of the 
united States now.

02 06 50 10 CDR We've teen on the Exer-Genie now as much as 

30 minutes at a time, and ve've doubled the 
workload on it, and there's not much more we can 
do. If we're not hungry, we don't eat. I think 
we're all feeling pretty chipper; there's no 
discomfort up here. My cold is improved con- 
siderably. 

02 06 50 36 CC Roger. That's good. 

02 06 50 50 CDR A subject that we are concerned about is the 

chlorination of the drinking water. We're drink- 
ing about as much as we can. I'd say that we've 
drunk enough water to lower the quantity suf- 
ficiently to have a chlorine check.

you say again your question about the potable 
water and chlorination? 



Page 262 

02 07 10 23 CDR Yes, Hon. We - adding chlorine to the water 

quantity that has not decreased since we've 
"been taken off practically. Arid if the 
taste of the chlorine has not bothered us 
yet, but we feel we haven't taken enough water 
out of there to warrant adding chlorine on a 
2lt-hour basis.

02 07 12 27 IMP At appr aximat ely 20 minutes ago, the prime rate 

evaporator ran into the same kind of problem 
it had earlier in the flight. The steam pres- 
sure went all the way down peg low, and they 
could not increase it by going to MANUAL and 
the INCREASE switch. I reserviced it for 
2 minutes and operated manually for another 
couple of minutes and finally went back to 
ADTO. And it's been running fine for the last 
20 minutes - maybe longer - I guess more like 
about 30 minutes ago. 

02 07 33 07 CC Roger. We copy. 



Page 263 

02 07 13 13 IMP Apparently, it's a case of the evaporator 

drying out instead of the evaporator being

Roger. I had AC bus 1 light on, no overload. 
The inverter was automatically disconnected, 
and I'm wondering if there isn't some possibility 
of having trouble with that inverter putting 
out an overvoltage? 

Hoger. We're working on this. Can you asso- 
ciate this with anything else that was going 
on at that time? 
That's negative. 

And it wasn't associated then with the flow 

proportioning valve switchover? 

Hot associated with anything that I can think 

Of.

you put it to HEATER for 1 minute and then to 
POWER for the self -"Lest. By the way, you leave 
it 2U minutes in HEATER if yon are going to

Systems test right hand to Charlie. Disregard

Indicator should he 0 to h.5 volts. Over.

Apollo 7 j Houston. I will call you again in 
about 30 seconds. The signal is very poor. 
All copied is something about caution and

Apollo 7, Houston. You are unreadable right 
now. 

Houston, Apollo 7. Say again. 

GUAM (REV 39) 
Apollo 7» Houston. How do you read? 
Okay. Did you read my last? ... 
Apollo 7, Houston. I read you about strength

Roger. That is much better. Go. 
Apollo 7, say again. 

Apollo 7, Houston, At acquisition Mercury, 
you gave me a transmission. All I copied was 
something about caution and varning panel. 
Would you say again? 

Houston, this is Apollo 7- Just prior to 
crossing the Red Sea, we lost AC bus 1 and 
AC bus 2. ... 

Apollo 7» Houston. Understand Just after 
crossing the Red Sea, you lost AC bus 1 and 
AC bus 2. You have obtained RESET. I am 
going to wait over Guam and go with this

again. I am missing too much of the trans- 
mission. 

02 13 35 38 CDE Roger. We're up here standing by. 

02 13 36 20 CC Apollo 7, Houston. Hov do you read? 

02 13 36 22 CDR Roger. Loud and clear. 

02 13 36 25 CC Okay. I am sorry to have you repeat this 

again. But I did not get the full message 
there. I got something after passing the 
Bed Sea. You had AC bus 1 and AC bus 2 fail. 
You did get RESET on both buses. Is that cor- 
rect? 

02 13 36 kk CDR That is correct, approximately 6l hours and 

lfc minutes. About 9 minutes earlier, we had 
a. master alarm., but no caution and warning 
lights Indicated. 

02 13 36 5^ CC You had no caution and warning lights. 

02 13 36 59 CDR That was 9 minutes earlier. If you recall, 

we had a bit of ghosts earlier in the mission. 
He also had an AC 1 bus failure when we lost 
a compressor twice, and it came back up again. 
Apparently, we've got a trend here that I'd 
like to have more Information about. 

02 13 37 20 CC Roger. Understand. You think it is a ghost. 

How — Just to make sure I have it correct. 

Tow do have both AC buses working normally now. 



Page 280 

02 13 37 29 CDR That is correct. I am not sure kind - what kind 

of ghosts we have, but we have had master alarms 
and no indication as to the cause. 

02 13 37 38 CC Thank you. 

02 13 37 ^3 U(P Hey, Bill. We got one more thing that may 

or nay not he significant, but after I reset 
the first master alarm with no caution or warn- 
ing light, I checked the currents on all the 
fuel cells, and we were averaging a little over 
20 amps per fuel cell, and now we are hack to 
about 15. And, at first, I attrihuted that to 
a cycling load. I don't know; it could possibly 
have been AC loads. I don't know. 
02 13 38 l4 CC Roger. Understand. Immediately after RESET, 

you monitored the fuel cell currents at 20.0 
amps, and they are now reading 15.0. 
02 13 38 23 IMP That is a negative. After the master alarm, 

with no caution or warning lights, at 6l 09 is 
when I noticed the fuel cell currents. The 
• other two caution and warning alarms when the 
bus failed were 6l ih. Over. 
Roger. 

If we sound puzzled now, we were not then.

giving you our analysis of the situation as 
soon as we get it. In the meantime, I'd 
like to go back over my notes and make sure 



Page 282 

that I have the story correct. Okay. The 
way I have it : at 6l plus 09 , you got a mas- 
ter alarm light with no caution and warning 
lights? You reset the master alarm. Okay. 
02 lk 02 lfl CC At that time, fuel cell current was averaging 

20.0 each. At 6l plus lk, you got an AC 1 and 
an AC 2 fail. You reset both AC 1 and AC 2 
successfully. At the time that you were talk- 
ing to me, about 6l plus 30, the fuel cells 
were a— er aging 15 amps, one-five amps. That 
is the story as I have it copied.

6l plus lk for the bus fail.

6l plus 05 for the master alarm. 

02 ill 03 48 CMP And the fuel cell loading may or may not be 

significant. That was the third AC bus 1 fail- 
ure we've had and the first AC bus 2 failure, 



Page 2&3 



and sqt 'best onboard analysis is to track it 
down to a transient overvoltage , tout guiding 
onto both buses, which seems kind of difficult.

Roger. And that is the correct time for TV ON. 
Roger. TV Olf at 1*1 plus Ul. Is that right? 
Affirmative . 

That is the end of the flight plan update. 
Roger. If you don't want the TV on until 71 hours 
and 40 minutes, I think we will hold off unstov- 
ing it. The thing is in the way when it is up, 
and we would rather not be running into it all 
the time.

02 19 53 U7 CC Readback Is correct. Donn, I have an analysis 

to this AC problem. I'll go over it and see 
what you hare - what your comments are. 

02 19 5? 03 CMP Okay. Go ahead. 

02 19 5*t 06 CC Okay. Point 1, ve have spent considerable 

time going through the data here. And we have 
noticed that the AC bus glitches are associated 
with the cycling OFF of 0 g CRYO fans. This 
is causing the AC bus to surge to overvolt- 
age. It seems as though this is only a prob- 
lem at low power loads on the AC bus, but it 
has been noticed repeatedly. 
02 19 3k 51 CMP Okay. That - sounds pretty logical- 

OS 19 5 1 * 55 CC Point 2; recommendation 0g fans tank 1 OFF , 

do that. This will insure AC 1 stays on line. 
If our analysis of the problem is correct. 
02 19 55 20 CMP Roger. What about AC 2. We have that one, also. 

02 19 55 23 CC Roger. You'll have that one OH. We will 

periodically switch 0^ fans tank 1 back to 
the OS position. At the same tine, 0 2 fans 
tank 2, OFF. This will insure at least one AC 
bus is protected at all times from this surging 
to avervoltage. 

02 19 55 1*9 CMP Roger. I see. If we get fired up again, do 

you think we will still have this problem? 

02 19 55 55 CC I'm not sure. It seems as though it is not 

nearly as much a problem when you're powered

Hey, Jack. I have a question on our low quad. 










We bad one quad yesterday that vas reading

propellant pressure around the ^3— percent level, 










or are we going to switch to secondary propel-

We are on the FM downlink now, which means we

unable to get a MARK in ...

this point and possibly will not be able to 

support the WSMR test. 
02 22 06 55 CC If I copy you, Wally, understand you have had a 

problem in aligning the platform, and you may not 

be able to support the WSMR test. Is that Charlie? 
02 22 07 0k CDR That is Charlie, The problem apparently is the 

MARK button. 

02 22 07 10 CC A problem with the MARK button. Roger. Under- 

stand. 

02 22 07 lU CDR Tes, we hope that's what it is, Jack. It was 

attempted in the P51, and in step k, we have a 
flashing 51 and calling for a MARK. We pushed 
the MARK button repeatedly, and it will not go 
on to the next display. Apparently, it's not 
accepting the MARK, or else the MARK button is 
filled; I'm not sure which. I did check - I 
did check a bit in /lagvood 7*», the L53 flag, 
and that was set when the 51 vas flashing. I 
also did a CNC self -check that turned out okay; 
and we did a halting 53 - by that I mean we 



Page 305 



just ran through the program without actually 
maneuvering. It seemed to work fine. We did 
punch the ENTER 'button, and the computer pro- 
gressed through the program.

your DSKY now. You're still on Program 1)1 with

Do you want me to call it back up?

02 22 08 17 IMP Okay. 

02 22 08 U6 IMP Houston, Apollo 7- On our pre-mod processor 

here , we had a failed normal pre-mod processor 

02 22 09 01 CC Roger. Understand. Copy that you had a failed 

pre-mod processor, and you're going to run the 
rest of the flight in AUXILIARY. 

02 22 09 09 IMP That's negative! We are operating in AUXILIARY 

now per your request during the evening; and 
I'm trying to find out — are we going to have to 
operate there the rest of the flight? 

02 22 09 22 CC Walt, we're working on a troubleshooting pro- 

cedure on this. I'm sorry I missed part of 
your transmission. 

02 22 09 32 CC We'll be troubleshooting this, and we will get 

you a reading on it shortly.

02 22 09 37 IMP Hey, Jack. When I got up this morning, we had 

already been told by ground to go to IMP AUXILIARY 
earlier in the evening, and I'm vondering is 
there trouble with the HOKMAL; and if not, we'd 
like to get back so ve can operate the tape re-

the NORMAL PM where we lost voice telemetry 
aubcarrier of the NORMAL PM, and we're devising 
a troubleshooting procedure now. We'd like for 
you to stay in this present configuration until 
we've gotten that procedure up to you. You can 
use the tape recorder as you want as long as you 
are in low bit rate.

02 22 12 50 CC Walt, did you have very much of a voice trans- 

cription on that tape recorder? 

02 22 12 55 IMP I don't know, but the whole tape has been re-

in program 00, we would like to have you press 
the MARK button and verify whether you get a 
PROGRAM ALARM. 

Okay. Here goes. I do not get a PROGRAM ALARM. 
Okay. If you don't get a PROGRAM ALARM now, 
press the MARK REJECT button while in POO there 
and see whether you get a PROGRAM ALARM.

ALARM. 

Roger. Copy that. During this next night 
pass, we would like you to try P51 again. If 
jou don't get any response from the MARK but- 
ton, then try P53 and P5 1 *. 
Jack, do you have any ... 
Roger. Copy. Stand by.

then do VERB 57 ENTER. After that, you will key

02 23 52 19 CDR Go ahead. 

02 23 52 20 CC Okay. Because of that AC glitch last night and 

the present status of the RCS fuel, we're going 
to more the third SPS burn up to today. And we're 
going to plan to make that bum about 75 hours 
and U6 minutes, so ve have about k hours to go 
in vhich that will bring the -perigee on down to 
90 miles, and then we'll be way Inside the red- 
line. 

02 23 52 50 CDR Roger. I think that last pass for our last

want to eat up our fuel earlier of the rather

03 00 Oh kl CC Roger. The reason we are doing a two-jet ullage, 

Walt , Is to even up the RCS fuel. When we do 
this, all the quads will be even, and we will 
be in fat shape for an SCS RCS deorbit redline.

Okay. Wally, on your question on the chlorina-

All right. Go ahead, Wally. 

If there's a power down, I'd like to leave one 

of the blue hags there to check our speedup 

rate during drifting flight. 

I'd like to start drifting flight with our 

rates almost to zero, and then we'll see how 

they develop. 

Roger. We concur. 

We heard a report last night that Lunney said 
it looked like we were very stable, but that 
turned out not to be true. 
Which one do you plan to leave on, Wally? 

DSKY lifters, we could get a check on this

call us over Tananarive, but we couldn't raise 
you. The SPS burn left a large puddle of water 
on the aft bulkhead. At first , we were very con- 
cerned about whether it was water glycol or water. 
We tasted it; it was water. We checked further 
and discovered it was underneath the suit bags. 
Since that time, we mopped it using the water- 
hose dump system. The water came from, the cool- 
ant lines that we used to use and the water 
coolant lines and its condensation. We took a 
panel off - the small perforators panel - to 
determine how to work the problem. Houston, 
Apollo. 

03 07 03 51 CC Soger. He copied part of that, I think, Wally.

Soger. Tank 1 fans ON, 

If you get a chance, look down on the ground 
there. You might be able to see a big fire. 
Where at? 

I think you may not see it till the next pass; 

it's over in Hawaii. 

Roger. 

You say that big fire is to the west? 

Yes. That's affirmative. We'll try to give you 

some pointing data for the next pass over. 

Roger. Thank you.

Roger. We also just discovered water coming out 
of our blue hoses, at least the one in the center 
couch. I haven't checked the other two yet, but 
we've got quite a bit of visible moisture flowing 
out of it. 

Roger. Coming out of the blue 0g hose. Is that 
what you said? 

Affirmative. And we've temporarily turned off 
the suit compressor so we could clean up - clean 
it up.

you can delete those. At 93 plus 15, add "H^

I didn't get «n of it, but it was something 
about the sleep cycle 'being shortened. And when 
I cane oo, the time line showed the commander's

that the way you understood it? 
03 18 51 45 CMP Hiat's affirmative- But you did have ... some-

asked for an extension and got it. I want the 
rest of these work periods worked out now. Ap-

03 18 53 08 IMP Roger. Bill, can you check - I think I'd like 

to go ahead and try to activate our primary water 
holler before ve commence the radiator degrada- 
tion test. And then if the - we have any prob- 
lems while doing the radiator degradation test, 
such as our primary water boiler goes down, find 
out if it's okay to activate the secondary loop 
with the radiator bypass. Over. 

03 18 53 33 CC Roger. Stand by. 

03 18 5^ 02 CC Roger. Walt, I have something here, and I think 

it's pretty close to what you said. I'll go 
through a recommended procedure here. 

03 18 5k 10 LMP Okay. Is it something I have to write down or 

not? 

03 18 5h 12 CC Ho. Why don't you listen to it first? I think 

it's just what you wanted there. 
03 18 5U 16 LMP Go ahead. 

03 18 5U 13 CC Step 1, prior to test, reservice evaporator, if 

not already reserviced. Step 2, begin the actual 
test. Three, activate primary evaporator in AUTO 
mode. Four, if evaporator dries out, close back 
pressure control valve and wait 15 mi mites. Five, 
then reservice evaporator and reactivate in AUTO 
mode. Six, if evaporator dries out again, close 
back pressure control valve and shut down evap- 
orator. Seven, continue test. Eight, if evaporator 



Page U03 

out count exceeds 80 degrees Fahrenheit, acti- 
vate secondary loop with radiators bypassed and 
continue test. 

03 18 55 I 1 * IMP Only one question with that. The 80 degrees 

Fahrenheit - the rule in the past has teen ac- 
tivate secondary loop if the temperature of the 
glycol evaporator outlet exceeded 60 . Can you 
confirm that? 

03 18 55 26 CC Stand by. 

03 18 56 29 CC Apollo 7, Houston. Regarding the 80- degree count, 

they say they are willing to go that high. If 
you activate the secondary lower than that, it 
compromises the test. I said that I thought that 
we ought to go ahead and look at working it at 
60, and they ' re checking into it. 

03 18 56 50 LMP Okay. Understand. I don't think there's any 

great big problem with letting it go a little 
higher, Hon. I think we've got a good chance 
of not having to activate it anyway, but that's 
just a conjecture new. 

03 18 57 00 CC Okay. 

03 18 57 01 LMP Bill, I mean, sorry.

radiator degradation test, spacecraft will he 
left in high hit rate. Spacecraft C0MM system 
will he set up for high bit rate record hy com- 
mand. At the following time, place the tape re- 
corder forward switch to FOEWABD for 3 minutes, 
then to OFF. Beady to copy times? At 92 plus 
57. 93 plus 37, 9^ pins 29, 95 plus 08, 96 plus

etry command BESET switch during radiator degra- 
dation test. Hote: you can only record voice 
while tape is running as scheduled above. 

03 19 06 05 LMP Okay. I've got the time in, and I'd like you 

to repeat the last comment. The attention is 
to — I assume you people are going to rewind 
and leave us with a fresh roll of tape to start 
with? And, we'll put it to FORWARD; I also as- 
sume you were going to leave it with my command 
here, and I'll have to hit C0MMAHD BESET switch

Okay. Understand you axe going to have every- 
thing set up, and all I will use is tape recorder 
■otion switch going to FORWARD at those times. 
That's affirmative. 

And we can record at the time the tape is run- 
ning. Vas there anything else in that last 
consent? 

negative. That's correct. Tou can only record 
voice while tape is running as scheduled at 
these times, and you did get - —

that out and give us a fresh tape as soon as pos- 
sible afterwards . Did you read ny consent that,

03 19 37 kl CMP Soger, Houston. 

03 19 37 CC Apollo 7. I have a couple of Items. First, in 

reference to the secondary loop activation dur- 
ing the radiator tests, ve have confirmed that 
80 degrees ETAP 00T TEMP is an acceptable hard- 
ware limit. However, secondary loop nay he 
activated before 80 degrees Fahrenheit as physi- 
cal comfort dictates. Two, in reference to the 
handcontroller anomaly, ve would like to knew 
which check or test did yon use to verify the 
acceptable performance? 

03 19 38 26 CMP Roger. We used the standard malfunction pro- 

cedure starting with the CMC troubleshooting 
technique. If the thing passed that test, then 
ve vent on with the rest of it - it's on page 15 - 
page — it's item 2, page lh — and the final was 
the time itself in there where the muwaly oc— 
— curred. It did not occur there again. 

03 19 38 51 CC Roger. 



Page 1(08 

03 19 38 52 CMP ... zero. 

03 19 39 03 CMP And there was a discrepancy with the malfunction 

... only implied. This is the failure where the 
controls are stock. OB. Where the malfunction oc- 
curs, the function will not occur. 

03 19 39 20 CC Roger. 

03 19 38 22 CMP And in that same case, the final two digits on 

number 1 register of the DSKT would be 75 for 
pitch down. If the thing was stuck on 75, it 
saw immediately ; it could not show. 

03 19 39 36 CC Roger. 

03 19 39 39 CMP And, Bill, do you want me to follow the pro- 

cedure that vas passed up the first time ve re- 
activated the primary water boiler? I had 
several steps here. I think you were probably 
there when you passed it up even. 
Stand by on that. 
Do you recall the one? 
Tes, we know; we want to confirm. 
And when you get it, we can use a chart update, 
please. 
Roger.

trying to load it correctly - we ended up giving 
it an insoluble problem here and got a restart 
on it.

25. Over. 

03 23 20 07 CC Boger. Tour TV time is 95 plus 25- 

03 23 20 h8 IMP Jack, if ve start transmitting the TV at 25, 

hov soon do you people see that in the Center? 
03 23 21 08 CC Wait , it has to go through the scan converter, 

and it doesn't take too long. We get it fairly 

soon. 

03 23 21 17 IMP When ve initially ... started, we're coming down

stop everything." 

Shot's right. Coming to you live from outer 
space, the one and only original Apollo orbit- 
ing road snow, starring those great acrobats of 
outer 8 pace, Wally Schirra and Walt Cunningham.

little message to Deke Slayton. A little bit 
closer, Wally. Kind of looks like something 
about "Are you a, are you a — 
Slat's right .

castle there if you have a chance. 
03 23 29 01 CDS Okay. Stand by. 

03 23 29 05 IMP I think ve can vozk that out. Let's take it off 

the bracket and pan the cockpit a little bit. 

03 23 29 IT CDB At this point , ve are looking across the cockpit 

over Walt Cunningham's chest toward Soon Eisele, 
vho's controlling the spacecraft ... for the 
radiator degradation test. There you see a pen 
cruising by, and I need to make some notes, ob- 
viously. From there, ve concentrate on the left 
seat's attitude control. You can see possibly 
two of the instruments for attitude control over 
there. In the center panel, ve have many of the 
switches that position the machine, that are com- 
plicated to fly, and ve monitor our systems on 
this side. At this point, Walt Cunningham is 
working on the glycol evaporator steam pressure 
and the vaterboiler- We've had quite a few prob- 
lems on this, but we've a few of them solved with 
a little extra special attention. 

03 23 30 13 CUR Looking across the cockpit to the right, ve have 

most of our electrical power controls, fuel cell 
controls, den, as ve continue across the cockpit, 



Page k29 

ve'll cone to the right side and that win dew 
where you can see the Gulf Coast outside, and 
vith the veather and winds, we've got surf galore. 
03 23 30 35 CC The outside doesn't show too veil due to the ORB 

rate, Wally . 

03 23 30 k6 CDB X an nov going to work Toy way dom into the 

lower equipment bay where we hare our navigation 
station. Here you can see the heart of the 
navigation system of the Apollo spacecraft - 
the command module, that is - the sextant and 
telescope. The near large object is a monocular 
type device - is the telescope, and adjacent to 
it - the small instrument - is the sextant. Ve 
acquire a known star in the telescope, put it 
in the center of the telescope, and then acquire 
In the sextant where it can be marked on a 
rather carefully graduated set of e* 1 " 1 "* 1 g to 
give us the exact position of the star.

03 23 31 36 IMP I'm now panning over to Vally who is going to 

get the telephoto lens out of its stowage com- 
partment , and we'll attempt to do a little out- 
the— window photography. 

03. 23. 31 50 CC Walt, the out-the-window doesn't show up very 

well, Walt, due to the ORB rate — 

03 23 31 59 IMP Do you want to skip the oui-the-window? 



Page 1*30 

03 23 32 01 CC Ho, we'd like you to keep it inside. The ORB rate 

just makes it impossible to see much outside. 
03 23 32 07 IMP Roger. Understand. Okay. 

03 23 32 12 CC Wally, this is Gene. Deke just called in, and 

we've got your answer, and we've got it recorded 
for your return. 

03 23 32 18 CI« Soger. Beal fine. 

03 23 32 IS CDS He'll nov show you the lower equipment bay where 

we have the water control and oxygen control 
panels and one panel where we can also change 
the lithium hydroxide in flight - to change out 
carbon dioxide removal . 

03 23 32 k6 CDS I've just opened one of our food bays, and when 

I pulled the curtain down, you'll notice that we 
have a real good package that is portable. This 
bay is near empty. We'll switch to another bay 
starting tomorrow. 

03 23 33 07 GBR 3his is an empty food bay with food rolled up 

rather tightly for the first k days of con- 
sumption. Our dietitian, Rita Rapp, will ap- 
preciate how tightly we repackaged the empty, 
torn-up packets of food. 

03 23 33 35 COB And now, we will rotate the camera around 

through the lower equipment bay back out towards 
the cockpit. I'm sure - the spaghetti that you 
see, which is the CQAS cable, that I'm holding.

Walt Cunningham is working with our exercise 
device, using a bicycle notion to stimulate 
Ma cardiovascular system. You can take the 
same device in all the ... and use the arms in 
a curling action to create an exercise in the 
upper torso. I'm going to swing now to the 
other side of the cockpit where you can see 
TWm is still -«ri»vt-.a*Ti*Tig the attitude of 
rather a tight deadband to prepare for our 
radiator degradation test. 
You might say we have our lighter moments. 
Have you got Baney's answer yet? 
Ho, fianey isn't talking, Vally. 
Roger. And how much more time do yon want on 
this machine T 

Somebody tells me he isn't talking, but just 
buying. 

Be is buying. Thank you very much. Very good. 
We will now take you down below the couches to 
our storage area. This bottom opens up to be 
a sleep station. The object below is a head- 
rest - swings off and stows. The large bulky 
bag that you see off to the camera left is 
where our surface suits are stowed at this time.

Wally, we will give you a back on your fuel use 

on this - the fuel usage we have copied so far 

has teen between IT and 18 pounds, -which is 

right on the nominal for this test. 

Jack, I'm ready to copy the update chart. 

Houston, Apollo T. 

Okay, wait, stand by one. 

Jack, on some of these ... let's assume we've 
l ear ned something up here in 5 days that some- 
body else hasn't learned yet. 
Say again, Wally. I missed that. 
Let's assume we hare learned something up here 
In the last 5 days that we didn't know before we 
cane up. 

Okay. I have this daylight star count PAD to 
pass up. 

Okay. Ve will take it.

align will be 98 plus 15, and the only remark — 
Do we have to do this T align for these angles? 
He have a REFSMMAT now. 

Roger. The T align is for those angles, and the 
other change on this is that the shaft will be 
90 degrees and a trunnion of zero degrees.

Ok 00 56 02 IMP Okay. Zero shaft 90. Dann lias got something 

to report. 

OU 00 56 10 CMP Jack, we did this test a couple of days ago with 

a 120-degrees angle up, and I just didn't see 
much point In it. lour ability to see stars is 
not so much the function of light transmission 
of the telescope as it Is a natter of stray light 
. you got coming in from loose particles flying 
around outside that look like stars and also in 
stray light that comes op from the earth and 
whatnot , distorting the telescope picture. Jack, 
the point is I don't think you are going to learn 
a lot from this. We know already that the stars 
aren't all the same, aren't all the same ...

what we have already discovered in this flight: 
that you can't see stars In the telescope except 
Just after sunrise ... or Just after ... sunset 
which we have been trying to tell the Project 
Office for about 5 years. 

(A 01 00 42 CC Boger. Copy that. Yally, this test here has 

the telescope sunlight of sight at 70 degrees, 
which is the worst case, and we would kind of 
like to get this one in. 

Oh 01 00 56 Cm that's what I've been trying to tell you. With 

the best case, we didn't do any good. If you 
want as to do the test, all right; we will do 
it, but we are kind of tired of arguing with 
people who tell us to do this. I'd not talking 
about you, but the -various things you don't 
know about telescopes.

oat that you can, in general, see stars in the

and provided all the optics vill pull them in 
for you, but of course, it's impossible to see 
anything through the telescope under these con-

Hey, Jack, being en that test implies

below the M-t™i fuel usage on that thing, where 

there were no torques. 

That's real fine information, Halt.

Houston, do you still read? 

Roger. We are still reading you, Wally. 

That's a zero again with no pulses. 

You'll have some fun reading this one. Over.

Our PUGS is not working I was told, so I haven't 
paid any attention to it, hut I show the oxidizer 
unbalance reading a minus 300 or decreased 300, 
and it kinda Jumps around during a burn. I don't 
think it means anything at all. The SPS quantity 
is remaining IT. 15 percent oxidizer, 18.2 per- 
cent fuel. Over.

Eager. Thank you, Evans. Any more local news 
around there to report? 

Roger. I can give you - looks like the end 
of the Mission now predicted. The vord I have, 
25 percent Og left, and about 6.8 percent Hg left. 
Roger. I understand ; that sounds good. About 
trhat I predicted on the hydrogen, I think, isn't 
it? 

I think so. On the fuel cells, performance is 
right down the middle. Purging is turning out 
nominal. Looks HKe we'll plan to purge Og 
imediatelj- prior to the SPS burn , and this 
should improve the load-sharing characteristics 
between the fuel cell and the battery. 
Roger. 1 understand, and is the SPS burn nom- 
inally what it is in the flight plan? 
The SPS burns are still per flight plans, yes. 
Soger. Thank you. Did they tell you we're 
purging water before each SPS burn, too? 
Say again, Wally. 

1 don't know whether you got the report or not, 
but there's fast water collecting all over the 
plumbing an the ECS, and it forms rather large 
blobs that we're going to have to take off be- 
fore we get a burn going again ... that's all. 
Roger. I understand you want to collect all the 
water at one place.

Roger. Understand, Bon. The only concern I 
hare about battery charge is supporting the 
battery failure on a hybrid deorbit. 
Oh U 28 53 CC Soger. He concur. Ton might be interested: 

it's believed that we've had a slight change 
in the battery charger characteristics as a 
function of altitude, such that the charging 
voltage at the battery terminals is about 
two— to three-tenths volts lower than normal, and 
this would account for the decreased charging 
current. We're continuing ground testing to 
better define this anomaly. 
This was done subsequent to cur lift-off? 
Say again, Wally. 

You say this was done after we took off, Ron? 
That's affirmative. 
It's good work that they found it out.

Oh 12 26 CMP Okay. At sunrise , first of all , the moon was 

in the field of view, and that tends to vipe 
out a lot of stars, but at sunrise , I counted 
12 stars, at plus Oh two stars , plus 08 one star, 
and plus 12 three stars. 

Oh 12 2T 06 CC Roger. I copy, Donn. 

Oh 12 27 07 CMP Then they all vent away, except a couple of 

bright ones right after sunrise. At sunset 
■Inns 12 four, minus 8 15 , minus k 30, and at 
sunset, I saw kO or more. Of course , this 
was at the other attitude when the moon was 
not in the field of view. I could see the 
constellation Sagittarius very plainly and all 
the other major stars that appeared in the 
telescope at that time. 

Oh 12 27 39 CC Roger. 

Oh 12 27 1»5 CMP I recommend that we knock off the remaining 

star counts on the basis that we don't need -

really need - to put window shades up to get 
dark adapted because even if you are dark 
adapted, if you look In a telescope, you get 
belted with light; it ruins it anyway. And the 
best way to get dark adapted is to put your 
eyeball up there and leave it there for several 
minutes. 

(A 12 28 08 CC I see. Okay. So the window shades are not doing 

any good is what you're saying there. Bight? 

Ofc 12 28 ill CMP I think so; yes. I don't think the window 

shades would help that much. 

A 12 28 17 CC Okay. 

Ck 12 28 18 CMP It's not the sunlight- coming in the windows 

that keeps you from getting dark adapted any- 
way. 

6k 12 28 25 CC Boger. 

Oil 12 28 29 CMP I had roughly the same sort of light pattern 

in the telescope that I had on the earlier 
test. There was a bright ring around the edge 
of it and a broad band across the middle of it, 
and this light pattern didn't disappear in the 
sunset. 

Oil 12 28 hj CC All right. 

(A 12 28 ^9 CMP In fact, on that second check, come to think of 

it, there wasn't any band across the middle. 
It was pretty nlean scope, and I think it had

Roger. Donn, do you have tine to give us a 
little ran down where you found out the best 
place to sleep 1st 

lies. We're still sleeping under the couches in 
space, and that seems to work out best. We're 
tried free floating and tried keeping strapped 
down in the sleeping bags, and the latter seens 
to be better off. I think yoa can also sleep 
in the couches if you're strapped down, I guess, 
but if there's more than one person ... you're 
kind of in the way. the only problem with 
sleeping under the couch - at least on the right 
side; I haven't checked the left, but I know 
on the right — It tends to get hot under there 
for some reason; not hot, but a little -warmer 
than the rest of the spacecraft. I don't think 
there's inch air circulation.

you observe the horizons out the rendezvous

Oh 13 33 h6 CMP ... I'm not sure, Tom, we haven't really done 

any precise local horizontal maneuvers yet . 

Oh 13 33 5k OC Okay. Veil, down the line in the next day or 

so, if you get s chance, I wish you would do 
that so we can get our simulators calibrated. 
And, also, out the side windows - the 1 and 
5 window when you're In local horizontal - 
if you will Just make a pencil mark there, we 
can then get our simulators calibrated to that. 



Page 501 

Ok 13 3k 12 CMP Okay. A good tine to do that may be in the 

land nark tracking, because we'll be lined 
up with local horizontal anyway. 

6k 13 3k 20 CC Okay. If you can, Just rake a note of that and 

check because it vill sure help us on getting 
these - you know, quantitative data for the sim- 
ulators and also to pass on to the other crews. 

Oh 13 3h 29 CMP Okay. Will do. Incidentally, the optics of 

the simulator are pretty realistic. What I'm

Ofc 15 07 05 OC Say, I have & procedure here on this television 

operation which I'm Just gonna pass up so you 
don't need to write it down. It's pretty simple. 
It involves a technique to get the best TV pic- 
ture, and it sort of goes like this. When hold- 
ing the TV, during the next TV period, take a 
look at the position of the AL switch and report 
the position. That's probably before you start 
taking the television pictures. Then about one- 
half way through, during the period of television, 
change the position of this AL switch. The AL 
stands for auto light, although it isn't automatic.

calculations made that show that there is a 



529 

five-tenths of a foot-pound torque possible 
going through perigee when you're broadside - 
going through perigee broadside to the direction 
of flight. This produces a possible rate of 
.03 degrees per second per second in pitch due 
to drag. I 'would like to ask you if this 
torquing rate that you experienced exists 
throughout a complete revolution , or is more 
pronounced - noticeable - at perigee only? 

(A 22 12 26 CDR Ve have already discovered it's more pronounced 

at perigee; ve were thinking here last night 
going across the States and across the Atlantic,

And ve now bare our time counting. It is 



119 hours 9 minutes and some odd seconds Into 
toe flight. One of our problems at this time 
is w nirfTig note of the small arrow here; we're 
not sure what it Beans in that up is not 
necessarily up or down, hot we will discuss 
that at a later time. What you Just observed 
was a fumbling attempt to get the keyboard 
marking on our DSKY, which is our display key- 
hoard; and the numbers you are reading is the 
time generated" from the onboard computer. I'd 
now n'fcw to show you Walt Cunningham preparing 
same our food at our food station. I'll bring 
you in close to show you what our food stations 
have. We have two buttons: the upper button 
is COED, the lower is HOT; and there is a spout 
that WaUy is now uncovering. When we depress 
the button, with the appropriate container over 
the silver spout, ve deliver 1 ounce of water, 
be it hot or cold. At this time, Walt will get 
some of the food. One of the nice features of 
the food preparation on this flight is - a nice 
feature about the food is that ve have hot 
water, and this makes the food much more 



Page 53* 

enjoyable and quite palatable. Ve are using a 
pair of surgical shears to cut open the upper 
portion of the plastic bag, and we pry open the 
spout, vtaich will then interface with the tap. 
At this point, Halt is applying it to the tap. 
On this trip, we use cold water. We are re- 
constituting seme fruit Juice. Ton see him 
depress the button, and each depression supplies 
1 ounce of cold water. This -water is quite 
delightful. It's cold as hell; it's about 
50 to !»5 degrees Fahrenheit. At first, we were 
«ttHng chlorine to the water daily to be sure 
there were no contaminants or bacteria that 
would develop in the water. This left a 
rather bad aftertaste. Ve are now adding 
chlorine approximately every other day. 
HAWAII through AHTIGUA (REV T6) 
OU 23 12 28 CSS He is now adding 5 ounces of water. You may 

notice the bubbles that are in the bag. There's 
a little bit of gas in the water; this does not 
cause us too much problems. If you get a lot 
of gas it does, and we have to clean the gas 
back out again. Fortunately, this has not 
happened too often. Then, the next step is to 
knead the bag; this mixes the powder concentrate 
with the water; and then we end up with a 



Page 535 

complete drink. Ye may have a zero-g demon- 
stration available for you here, where ve can 
spin the lag, and 70a 'rill notice the bubbles 
are sort of breaking and falling apart. They 
do not form a solid mass of bubbles, but you 
can see in the center a rather interesting 
formation of bubbles.

board through a heated vent; that nose has been 
passed to Donn, and he has a purge fitting

05 01 Oh 23 CMP Boger. -We're on ALTT0 1, and every once in a 

while, we hear some gurgling sounds. I shouldn't 
say every once in a while, but several times we 
have heard gurgling sounds in the outlet pipes 
of the nabilicals. At that tine, we generally 
turn the water accumulator AHC0, OFF and manually 
cycle the water accumulator three or four times. 
Seens to have helped.

lators lately, WaltT

Roger. We're scheduled for a P52 ... alignment 
at this time. I vonder hew critical that is. 
We're not in the proper attitude for it, and 
since ve have to maintain a local -vertical for 
it ... 

Apollo 7, could you say again? C0MM through 

Tananarive is pretty poor. 

Roger. Regarding the P52 alignment at this 

time: I would prefer not to do that. Over. 

Okay. Copy. Stand by. 

Apollo 7, we concur, negative P52. 

Roger. Thank you. 

And, 7, ve've got about 1 minute LOS Tananarive. 
We would like to try an S-band contact through 
ARIA 2 at approximate 121 plus 30. 
Okay. We'll do that.

Roger. Five-by through ASIA 2. 
Very good; best ARIA we 've had yet . 
Ve thought this is about the best COMM ve've had 
through ARIA, Wally. 
Tes, I'm really Impressed with it. 
I think maybe ve ought to use S-band through all 
of our ASIA aircraft Then ve try ARIA. 
I like - it's better than the work ve've had with 
Tananarive . 
I agree. 

How long can ve work this bird, Jack? 
We'll pick up Carnarvon here at 121 plus 33. 
Soger. Do ve overlap with ARIA? 
Affirmative . They will cut us off ARIA at that 
tine, and I have a P27 voice PAD to give you at 
Carnarvon.

05 02 hO 51 IMP Soger. On the second one , I relied on all optics 

to fcring it in when it got within 38 degrees, and 
the thing never moved off center; so at that point , 
I attempted to go for it manually, and hy the time 
I got over to it - I recognized it, and it was go- 
ing so fast that high speed resolve wouldn't catch 
it. It got away from me. I finally picked it up 
Just as it went outside the field of view, tut it 
vas too late to get any marks. On the third one, 
I loaded in the date of the landmarks up here, and 
when I went down on optics, it indicated that the 
target was completely outside the field of view to 
the north ... I saw the thing a little hit to the 
south of us . ... so what it amounts to is I got 
faked out three times on this stupid old optics in

Page 562 

3hls high-calorie stuff that's got everything 
hiked up with calories is just getting to us 
something fierce. In order to get a lot of 
calories in a small weight , everything has been 
hiked up, and it's all got a sweet taste. Some- 
thing you think tasted real good to you, but by 
the time you get to the end of the bag you can't 
really look it in the eye very veil. 
05 03 12 59 CC Boger. I understand that. 

05 03 13 01 CDR Bie crux to this thing was to save stowed weight, 

and as a result, the food was raised in caloric 
count, and it's all sweet stuff. 

05 03 13 16 CC Roger. 

05 03 13 18 I/4P You also might pass on to that crew, Jack, in 

case they haven't selected their menu yet. I 
had a tendency to pick out a menu which had in- 
dividual items that I liked a lot out of the 
samples . If I had it to do over again, I would 
try to make sure I had a wider variety of ac- 
ceptable foods. 

Okay. Copy that, Walt. We are about 30 seconds

served on telemetry on the ground, and we thought 
it was the TV switch.

three passes scheduled, don't ve? 
05 03 25 26 CC Affirmative. 

05 03 25 28 CMP Okay. I would like to suggest that we devote 

one pass - or at least part of a pass - to doing 
some unknown landmark, tracking, because I found 
that up here in flight that it is fairly easy 
to track any given object on the ground once you 
see it. The trouble with these known 1 anrhmrltfi 
is that they are damn hard to bring in in the 
first place, because either the AUTO optics 
doesn't work or they are outside the field of 
view sometimes. I nave found that you can 
track with the sextant fairly easily. So how 
about running that around with the GSH people, 
and see if they are agreeable. Ve don't have 
anything in the flight plan at all about check- 
ing unknown landmark performance . 

05 03 26 10 CC Roger. Copy that. We will toss it around here 

and let you know.

for loading a different DEUTA-V tailoff in the

you to read it out, Dorm, and check it, and if 
you need the procedure to do that, I have it.

05 03 36 kh CC Okay. There's no hurry on it. 

05 OS 36 *»9 SC Jack, I would like to make a comment or two re- 

garding this star horizon business. 

05 03 36 55 CC Okay. Go ahead. 

05 03 36 57 SC Well, I've examined the horizon in the telescope 

and sextant under all different light conditions 
varying from total darkness to broad daylight 
with the sun overhead, ' and I can find no reli- 
able line or hand or anything in there that's 
repeatable at all distant sun angles. Further- 
more, I know that stars in general are not visible 
during the daytime. About the only way you can 
see it is to get AUTO of the optics to pull one 
into the sextant for you. Obviously, if you're 
doing P23, you can't use AUTO optics to pull the 
star in there, so the chances of this thing ever 
working out are pretty slim, I guess. 

05 03 37 3U CC Boger. Copy that. 



Page 568 

05 03 37 36 CMP Soger. I suggest that we try one run of this 

just to prove that it won't work and then re- 
group and plan to do some star-to-lunar landmark 
■business later on in the flight somewhere. 

05 03 37 k9 CC Soger. We copy that. 

05 03 38 07 CDR It's kind of insulting to realize that the same 

light hands and horizons are there that we re- 
ported back in Mercury days.

Affirmative, 7. Computer is yours.

Donn, on this star horizon sighting here: if 
you're at the roll, pitch, and yaw attitudes 
that we gave you and have the trunnion and shaft 
values that we gave you also set in, the horizon 
should he visible in the landmark line of sight 
and the star visible in the star line of sight.

05 03 HO 18 CC And, Apollo 7, as we lose you here over Hawaii, 

we're going to try ARIA on S-hand. Do you want

Zone on the last pass . 



05 0k 52 53 CC Roger. 

05 0k 52 5k CDR We're set up for a star horizon check, locked up 

pretty tight on 356 degrees inertia!, which as 



Page 57^ 

we came across the coast went to SCS zero degrees 
pitch. The deadband was real tight ; this was in 
the SCS attitude hold hand and MET deadband lower 
range limit cycle OH- As soon as the test was 
terminated, I turned all SCS channels off to con- 
serve fuel, and then I had no pitch rate, no roll 
rate, no yaw rates on the needles. Then about - 
I'd say 10 minutes, we went to perigee; it was 
actually to 121 hours and 51 minutes, I think it 
was - 123 hours 51 minutes. We start pitching up 
to about three-tenths of a degree per second as 
we approach perigee, end then it would start 
pitching down, and actually went hack down to 
zero again in rate. 

05 Oh 5k 03 CDR And when we actually went to drifting flight , 

the pitch was about 35 degrees up, pitch up 
local vertical; it went down to about minus 
hO degrees or 310 to 320 degrees local vertical. 
That's where the rate stopped, and then it started 
back up slightly during the pitch. Torque was 
just in pitch in that case.

America had Hat tops and rather large ones, and 
they had little depressions in the center Just 
like the hurricane, and had the reversed flow 
pattern on the flat tops , which you would expect 
in the southern latitudes - the reverse coriolis 
effect. 

That's interesting. 

I'd never heard of that effect before, you know, 
on the top of a thunderstorm. 
I hadn't either.

Okay. You want the two sternal leads to go to 
the blue signal conditioner, right? 
Yes, that's affirmative. 

Okay, that "-ms Wally will have to connect the

7, Houston, Looks like we've got a processing 



problem here for a little bit. I've got the 



Page 593 

results of what ve feel on the evaporator, if 
you would like to hear It. 

05 09 35 57 LMP Roger. I'd le very interested. 

05 09 36 00 CC Roger. When we're operating under low cyclic 

loads - cyclic heat loads, as we have been doing, 
the evaporator will dry itself out. This is 
"basically caused by the evaporator boiling more 
water tinder low heat loads than Is being supplied 
to it. The end result is drying of the evaporator. 
If the evaporator is left in AUTO, the back pres- 
sure valve remains open and completely evacuates 
the evaporator. When the water valve is now opened 
either automatically or manually, the first water 
that goes into the evaporator flash freezes . This 
stops any more water from getting into the evapo- 
rator until it thaws out. A couple of more com- 
ments: we feel the boiler will work normally, 
should it be called upon to take the entire heat 
load. Since the radiators have demonstrated 
that they could handle the heat load, should 
the evaporator foul up again, it should be 
reserviced and turned off until it is needed. 

05 09 37 33 IMP Roger. Ron, there's only one comment I have 

to add to that that makes sense. I assume with 
high heat load then, we wouldn't have any prob- 
lem. We do notice the difference in temperature 



Page 59 1 * 

in the spacecraft when the evaporator is running 
or not, hut it seems like it runs a little bit 
«»n the time when it's on the line. The glycol 
evaporator outlet TEMP is regulated down under 
1»5 most of the time. In the drop line completely 
veil, we have a glycol evaporator outlet TEHP of 
50 to 52 and sometimes a little higher. 
05 09 38 06 CC Boger. We copy that. 

05 09 38 09 IMP So next time it shuts down, I will service it, 

and we will stand by on it .

was the one 'who vas way behind on sleep. And 
because we switched his day to - to go to bed

for anybody to try. 
Right. 

And he is finally acclimated to that schedule. 
an three of us have varying forms of cold - 
various forms of cold. Mine is still a head 
cold, and that's about my problem. I'm off 
pills these days .

What do the doctors have in mind for head 

clearing on reentry? 

We 're counting on three Actifed. 

You mean three per man? 

(Laughter) negative. One each, Donn. 

Why don't you suggest to 'em that they do that 

as flight surgeons for airplane drivers? I 

haven't seen that work yet.

probably, couldn't we?

Okay. The reason we knocked that off yesterday 
■was that when we got into attitude at the right 

tlBO and everything and the horizon and such 

In the sextant. The fixed line of sight was very 
Indistinct. In fact, it was pretty hard to pick 
out anything that you could use. There was one 
line that might pass for a repeatable line, but 
it was pretty tenuous . Subsequent to that , I 
did a P52 AUTO optics check and found that the 
star was up there, hut it was at a slightly dif- 
ferent shaft and trunnion angle. That was the 
reason ve didn't pick it up.

the following problem resulted in AUTO optics 
not acquiring on all three landmarks ; or to say 
another way, this is the reason AUTO optics 
didn't work. The trunnion will not drive until 
the computed trunnion is less than 38 degrees . 
The shaft is driving at this time which gives 
the impression that it is acquiring. And ap- 
parently, you started out with zero optics, and 
with zero optics when the less than 38-degree 
trunnion occurs, the optics have then approxi- 
mately 38 degrees to drive in trunnion to acquire 
the landmark. Now, this 38 degrees plus a pos- 
sible overshoot results In the thing hunting 
ground and the AUTO optics not acquiring. 
05 15 20 22 (MP Okay. Bill, I know all that. Wiat happened 

yesterday is that it never came out of zeros 
that I could tell. Even when the target got 
within the 38 degrees, it did not appear to drive. 
Also, on one of the landmarks, it was beyond the 
38-degree limit the whole time. It was way off 
to one side. 

05 15 20 It! CC Soger. Okay. I was afraid of that. 

05 15 20 46 CMP You see, I don't know all about how it is sup- 

posed to work. It didn't because the one land- 
mark - in fact, on two of them, it was beyond 
the field of view. 



Page 612 

05 15 20 58 CC On two of them, it was beyond the field of view? 

05 15 21 00 CMP I know what happened. It never moved off center 

even when it got within 38 degrees. Right now, 
it is supposed to drive out and pick it up when 
you get within 38 degrees of it. 

05 15 21 12 CC Okay. I got the picture. Two of the landmarks 

given to you. were actually beyond the limits . 
And one of them, even after you got it within the 
38 degrees, never went off- the stops in trunnion. 

05 15 21 26 CMP Well, that's what it appeared to me; yes. 

05 15 21 28 CC Okay. Thank you. Sorry; I didn't mean to be- 

labor that point. 

05 15 21 32 CMP Ho, that's okay. I understand what you mean. 

My point about it not working: it doesn't do 
you any good. I guess that is the point. 

05 15 21 UO CC Okay. If it doesn't work, this procedure I was 

getting ready to go through is not going to be 
any good either. But let me stand by and take 
another look at this before I occupy your time. 

05 15 21 51 CMP That's okay. Go ahead and read it up first. 

05 15 21 56 CC Okay. They - the net point was the first land- 

mark may have been too far out of plane. Appar- 
ently, that's correct from what you said. On the 
second landmark, you may not have waited until the 
less than the 38-degree constraint was met before 
starting. Apparently, this is the time it wouldn't 
come off zero. 



Page 613 

05 15 22 20 CMP New, wait a minute. That's not true. I waited 

until Walt said he saw the thing out the window, 
and then I went for it manually. By that time, 
It was almost up to the center of the — or well 
within the 38 degrees, and I did attempt to get 
on it and track it, hut it was so close to center 
by then the optics couldn't keep up on it. 

05 15 22 h0 CC Okay. 

05 15 22 Ul CMP It never did drive out there automatically to 

pick it up? 

05 15 22 U3 CC Hoger. That's the point. 

05 15 22 UU CMP . . . zero and the shaft rolled around. 

05 15 22 U6 CC Okay. Well, that's the point you were Just making 

then. Okay. On the - on the third landmark, you 
keyed in a plus sign on the latitude. I don't 
know what that means, other than maybe there was 
a wrong algehraic sign. 

05 15 23 00 CMP Okay. That was my goof. That was also beyond 

the field of view, and AISO had to go over and 
work manually, and it was still — - 

05 15 23 08 CC Okay. That was another one that was beyond - - 

05 15 23 09 CMP I was looking out the side window on that one, 

also. 

05 15 23 12 CC Okay. Thank you. 

05 15 23 15 CMP What I thought was when they - apparently when 

these guys say in the south, they really mean 



Page 6l k 

south, which means we '-re got to roll maybe 15 - 
20 degrees even to see It, which is a little bit 
far because that puts it way out In a strange 
oblique angle. 

05 15 23 29 CC Bight. Okay. One more item. Hie following 

changes to procedures should result in success- 
ful AUTO optics. A is - I am sure you're already 
doing this, Doim, but I am going to go through it 
anyway . To provide earlier acquisition time, 
revise step 5 in the procedure , which I doubt you 
are even using, to get the spacecraft equal to 
ID degrees versus 23 degrees . And I think from 
vhat you said down at the Cape, you were using 
10 degrees. 

05 15 2k 02 CMP 'Beat's what we have been using all along; yes. 

05 15 2h oh CC I didn't change the checklist, and that is my 

goof. Okay. And also - I guess the point that is 
a little bit different here - I hadn't - I didn't 
know about it. When you call up - before you 
call up P22 manually, let me get this. Call 
P22 , execute procedure through onboard checklist 
except manually position shaft zero, trunnion 
35 degrees prior to ENTER. 

05 15 2U 3U CMP Stand by.

05 16 23 50 CC After landmark tracking, we want to perform a 

sextant star observation with approximately 
35-degree line of sight to the sun. 

05 16 2k 03 CMP Oh, I see what you mean. Okay. 

05 16 2k 07 CC We will update that in the flight plan. By the 

way, that flight plan update I'll start over 
Antigua. 

05 16 2k 16 CMP Roger. 

05 16 2k 17 CC One final item. We are considering star lunar 

horizon sightings for later in the flight. 

05 16 2k 25 CMP Roger. You better make it pretty soon. That 

sun is going lower each day. It's receding 
toward the east, and there isn't much left now - 
much space between it and the sun, I mean. 



Page 617 

05 16 2k 35 CC Roger. Okay. 

05 16 2k 38 CMP I was thinking perhaps - Bill, are you still 

there? 

05 16 2k kl CC Roger. Go. 

05 16 24 1*3 CMP After the last landmark pass , on that night pass , 

following that, if ve perhaps could do the sex- 
tant check then sextant - I mean, the lunar 
landmark set check. 

05 16 2k 58 CC We'll take a look at that. Sounds like a good 

idea. 

05 16 25 01 CMP Bill, I've "oeen watching it come up, and it's in 

a good position. I can use any one of about 
three stars, plus I think I can either get a 
landmark or the lunar — or the limb of the moon, 
either one. But it's receding toward the east, 
and if we wait another day or two, I'm afraid 
we're not guing to have any nighttime left with 
the moon up. 

05 16 25 19 CC Well, that's a good point. Were those three 

stars you mentioned, were those Apollo stars? 

05 16 25 25 CMP Yes. There's Alpheratz and Procyon, and there's 

one other one - I'll have to look - Regulus, ex- 
cept it's a little too close. 

05 16 25 3h CC Okay. Thank you.

Roger. I've got a comment relative to that star 
count. I hope the daylight star people are not 
reading too much into these results we're getting. 
The fact is unless you can see 1*0 or 50 stars out 
there, you can't see enough to really say what 
part of the sty you're looking at. 
05 l6 26 kk CC Cfcay. I've got it written down. 

05 16 26 1*7 CMP I guess the point is they are hard to identify.

05 17 38 hh CMP It's been working pretty veil ever since. 

05 17 39 28 CMP Bill, log me another 20 clicks of water, please. 

05 17 39 31 CC Soger. Twenty clicks. Also, Doim, hare a 

question regarding the - when you make a water 
dump, hov - you know you reported that it 
affected the optics for a period of time, and 
a question: how long does it affect your 
ability to see through the optics when you make 
a dump? 

05 17 to 03 CMP Roger. Veil, what happens is that anytime that 

you dump fluids ... they turn to ice crystals, 
and the sun reflects off of them, and it's 
millions of them out there. Usually during a 
water dump or urine dump - why, it will persist 
for - oh, 3 or h minutes anyway; in fact, same- 
times longer than that. 

05 17 to 25 CC Roger. 

05 17 to 26 CMP Also . . . know once in a while when you're driv- 

ing the optics in shaft, you see little flakes 
of something come out on account of that. I 
don't know what the source of that reflection is. 

05 17 to 38 CC Okay. But from the time you first see this 

stuff - these crystals - it takes 3 or k minutes 
for them to disperse enough so that the optics 
are usable again. Is that a correct assumption? 



Page 626 

05 17 hO U8 CMP At least that long. It may be longer than that. 

Usually what happens is you're either In complete 
darkness or complete daylight within that 3- or 
It-minute period; bo I really couldn't say if you 
vie in deep space bow long it would take for 
those to disperse. 

05 17 hi 02 CC Okay. 

05 17 hi Ok CMP I think the message is - say, on the translunar 

operation, you would not want to he dumping water 
anytime scon before your optics operations. 

05 17 hi 16 CC Okay. I've got that copied down. Also, while 

I'm bugging you, I've got a question here from 
the medic. Be wants to know if you coughed 
about 2 minutes ago.

Apollo 7» Houston through Carnarvon. 
Roger, Houston. 

Donn, ve'd like to get an open circuit battery 
check. It'll require pulling a circuit breaker 
here. 

Okay. Go ahead. What do you vant? 

Okay. First, ve'd like to put the DC indicator 

switch to either MAIN A or MAUT B. 

Okay. It's on MAIN A. 

Okay. And then on panel 5, we'd like to open 
the following circuit breaker: the batt relay 
bus batt A circuit breaker. 
Stand by . 

Soger. Batt relay bus batt A going open now. 
Okay. And we're going to leave it open here to 
get some time data. We'll close it just before 
ICS Honeysuckle. 
Okay. 

What we'll do is we'll repeat the following pro- 
cedure for battery B over the States. 
Okay. 

And, Donn, on the question you had on the sextant 
star count: what we had done before was the 
scanning telescope star count. This is little 
different; we get a 37-degree LOS with the sun. 



Page 635 

05 20 35 55 CMP Boger. I understand. I thought the sextant 

count vas to he used In case the telescope 
count didn't pan out, and since ve did get - ve 
did succeed in getting star counts on tvo lines 
of sight there, I don't understand why ve have 
to do it again. I've already verified that you 
can see stars in the sextant in the daytime. 

05 20 36 18 CC Okay. Stand hy. 

05 20 36 38 CC Eomi, It's the line of sight that they feel 

that's important. Ve haven't done anything 
quite that close to the sun before . 

05 20 36 5k CMP Boger. We'll discuss it and call you hack later. 

That's eating into my sleep time for one thing, 
so I guess Walt can do it then. 

05 20 37 00 CC Okay. This is the last test we're going to do 

on that , Donn. 

05 20 37 05 CMP Okay. 

05 20 38 01 CC And, Donn , could you place your 0^ tank 2 fans

05 21 Ik 50 IMP I'll call up the computer clock time and take

05 21 li 56 CC Okay. The picture isn't the best right at this

05 21 15 00 CDR This is vhere we stand, and you'll note it's 

just about the time or below time - I'm not 
sure which way you look at it - but ve have 
our situation completely solved. We now know 
what our orientation is. How, if you'll pass 
me the camera, I'll continue the tour of the 
cockpit for the good people. 

05 21 15 25 CC Apollo 7, Houston. Opposite omni. 

05 21 15 33 CDR We are showing the camera now in ALC OUT. That 

is a new picture of the camera crew today. 
They're looking into the commander's seat over 
to the number 1 window. And you see the sun 
Just starting to come into the window, and it 



Page 639 

gives out a bright glare , and you may notice 
there is some of the collection of deposit on 
the window as I zoom slowly. This window has 
given us some trouble in that it is near our 
dump system, and it caught quite a bit of debris 
on it. Hert to the window is the optical site 
that we use for accurate alignment through the 
window. We come over to the number 2 window 
with the markings on it. These markings are 
used to orient the spacecraft if we have no 
other guidance system available, and it gives us 
the pitch angle in relation to the visible hor- 
izon of the earth. And it has numbers such as 
05, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and a line at the top 
which is our retro attitude, the attitude we're 
in to decelerate the spacecraft out of earth 
orbit. Coining over to the center, or the hatch 
window, we have some lines that were added to it 
to give us attitude reference for reentry. The 
lines describe a 55-degree bank to the left, a 
55-degree bank to the right, and two 90-degree 
banks either left or right. 

05 21 17 18 CC Apollo 7, Houston. That's a good picture of the 

hatch window. We can clearly see the lines. 

05 21 17 58 CC Apollo 7, Houston. 

05 21 18 07 CC Apollo 7, Houston. We're* losing your voice 

description. 



Page 6U0 

05 21 18 33 CDR Okay. Walt, why don't you take the camera tack, 

and you can shew us the overhead section above 
the couches . 

05 21 18 39 CC Okay. Wally, we've got your voice back now. 

05 21 18 U3 CDR Boger. 

05 21 18 to IMP How's the picture, Jack? 

05 21 18 U5 CC Hie picture is very good, very good. 

05 21 18 fc? CDR What I had shown you there were the two windows , 

the commander's reference window for pitch at- 
titude and the center hatch window for hank at- 
titude for reentry if we lose other guidance 
systems. 

05 21 18 59 CC Boger. We copy the center window. 

05 21 19 22 LMP For the IMP, this is where he sleeps. It's also 

where the command module pilot sleeps during his 
sleep cycle. Under the couch, we can see that 
there is absolutely no space left available. We 
have a suit stowage bag which is now stuffed com- 
pletely full with three suits. These suits came 
off about 6 hours into the flight, and ve've 
been very comfortable ever since. Passing back 
to the commander, he will describe the other 
couch for us . 
GUAYMAS through BERMUDA (REV 90) 

05 21 20 01 CDR Oils area here is the area under the command 

pilot couch, and we're showing the stowage of 



Page 6U1 

some of our loose equipment. The large long 
bag is the temporary stowage 'bag. At the far 
end Is the helmets bag vhere ve have our helmets 
stowed for the duration of the flight till we 
don our suits at the end. And at this point, 
Donn is frisking a sleep station bag. It looks 
like a normal camper's sleeping bag as it comes 
toward the lens. 

05 21 20 36 MP That is affixed to the overhead structure that 

you see now - - 

05 21 20 k3 CC Apollo 7, opposite omni. 

Ofc 21 20 hh CDR is a spring system to secure it. 

05 21 20 51 CDR When this is properly secured, we have the 

sleeping bags restrained, and we, in essence, 
are not in contact with any area of the space- 
craft but the bag itself. 

05 21 21 10 CDS Donn Eisele's had a rather hard day, so we'll 

let him turn in early and give you an idea of 
what the sleep station looks like with one of 
the cr e w in it. 

05 21 21 23 IMP One of the things to get used to up here was 

sleeping in a position when you are completely 
free floating. 

05 21 21 k2 CDR At this particular point, you can see some of 

the sunlight coming in. We find that when we 
get as tired as we are at the end of the day 



Page 61*2 

here , ve will cover our beads with the sleeping 
bag material, and the sunlight does not affect 
us. 

05 21 22 00 CDS Houston, are you still reading? 

05 21 22 02 CC Roger. Five-by, Wally. 

05 21 22 08 IMP At the far end of the stowage above the couches 

here, ve have the helmet bags stowed for the 
commander on his side, and the lunar module 
pilot on his side, in the temporary stowage bag. 
You are looking here at two of the sir umbilical 
hoses running from the environmental control 
system to the suits when the suits are on and 
to provide circulation when the suits are off. 
The hose on your right is the cold air hose 
bringing cold air into the suit, and the cne 
with the screen - on your left - is the return 
hose from the suit. It is used also to clean 
the air with that screen when it's off the suit. 

05 21 23 09 CC Roger. Walt, we've lost the picture now.

05 ZL 23 bO CC Eoger- We copied that. 

05 21 23 51 CC A real good demonstration of zero g. 

05 21 23 58 IMP And we might add for everybody's benefit, coming 

up later on in these flights, that there should 
be absolutely no problems with getting around in 
zero g as long as you're out of those suits . The 
vork done is almost zero, and you can move any 
place you want to very freely, and you certainly 
don't need strong handholds to take care of it. 
And you can generally Jam your feet - you find 
you end up using your feet an awful lot more than 
you do in 1 g, kind of like a monkey mo-Ting around 
in bis cage. He Just took our picture. How's it 
going, Jack?

23 UU 20 IMP Every time we've dumped waste water, the place 

where the POD attaches to the waste water panel 
is a - what do you call It - a suaged fitting, 
and there Is no 0-rlng in it, and we tightened 
it up, and It leaked. I tightened it up again as 
much as I think we ought to on that small line 
with the wrench we have , and it still forms a big 
bubble every time you dump. You get a - oh, h or 



Page 659 

5 ounces of vater in the one big bubble right 
there on the waste vater panel after you've fin- 
ished dumping a waste vater tank. 
05 23 hh 52 CC Okay. Copy that. 

05 23 ft 5** CDR Just to make the point clear, Jack, that same 

fitting is used as a CSS fitting on the space- 
craft prep period at the Cape, and they used a 
TOishant washer in there, but ve can't do it that 
way. They're going to redesign that fitting for 
later flights or put a solid mount in. 

05 23 ^5 CC Okay. Real fine. Real good description here. 

And the other thing is I have - we've got another 
landmark on this next pass that is - allows you 
to do some unknown landmark tracking in between. 
We'd like to pass you some data on a second land- 
mark for this next pass. 

05 23 h5 3h LMP Okay. Go ahead. 

05 23 U5 39 CDR Jack, on this next pass, we'd like to make a run 

on that hurricane instead of an unknown. Ve can 
get ■unknowns all around the world. 

05 23 ^5 *»5 CC Okay. We concur on that, Wally. We'd like for 

you to send up a state vector here at Carnarvon. 
Could you go to ACCEPT?

06 02 20 11 IMP Roger — 

06 02 20 12 CMP Roger. Jack, we Just had a -very anomalous sort 

of pass here - wrote it in the data off our 
book ... by block 1*2 ... did the narks and the 
thing came into view about a minute and a half 
earlier than the tine you gave us. It was away 
off to the north, more than just 18 miles; in 
fact, they bad to yaw 20 degrees to even be able 
to see it, and anyway, managed finally to get two 
marks on it before we lost it. They got three 
new updates for DELTA-R DELTA-V, but they got 
some huge changes on the landmark coordinates. 

06 02 20 52 CC Okay. We copied that, Donn. 

06 02 20 58 CMP It's conceivable he could have marked on the 

wrong point, but I don't think he could have

irants it. Walt likes to collect cocoa, so ve 
can give our cocoa to him, and both of them vere 
trying to con me out of my ham and applesauce.

for the meats and the fruits and the salads.

cones out. It's failed down - right down where 
— It goes into the bag itself, and the meal comes 

out some other hole. 
Okay. Copy that. 

And it always happens to my favorite food. 
Soger. This is about the best CQMM we've had.

the test as per the procedure. A couple of 
points of clarification: the time of initia- 
tion is selected to get MAX time above 200 miles 
-with <"ha m»^i « disabled; also, the time to ini- 
tiate attitude hold is 10 minutes past perigee 
so we shouldn't have too much of a problem there 
on the drag. 

Okay. If you say so. We'll give it a whirl; 
if it's too bad, we'll probably have to modify 
a little bit going up. 

Okay. And in that regard, there'll be two more 
of those tests, and they say if this is too 
expensive in fuel that we can Just take a look

I was Just baring fun with it. 

Hey, Bill, notice how quickly our condenser 

exhaust temperature started coming down. 

les, it's coming right down. 

Hey, Bill, I'm t.h-tnVtTigr Q f manually balancing 

the hydrogen tanks right after the burn. 



I'd like to have what you guys read out as 
quantities in Hg 1 and 2. 
Stand by. 

Walt, we're reading h2.6 in number - H g number 1 
and 39.2 in H^ number 2.

06 19 fcl U2 CC Readback is correct. 

06 19 hi k6 CDR Bill, did anybody take into consideration our 

perigee torquing on that alignment? 

06 19 kl 53 CC Yes, we had quite a discussion on that, Wally. 

And it turns out that - you spin this thing up 
about 10 minutes past perigee and go in attitude 
hold. They're villing to pay any penalty to get 
that thing set up for this so that you will be 
in the proper attitude at the proper roll rate 
as you go above 200 miles. If they use too much 
fuel on this, then they are villing to do away 
with one of the - or both of the other tests. 

06 19 h2 22 CDR Okay. Let's have all of the DT0 guys get to- 

gether in a huddle and add up their willingness 
to spend fuel and see if it meets our budget. 

06 19 k2 33 CC Roger. Well, that's what we have already done, 

and they say they are villing to accept a cancel- 
lation of one or both of those later tests in 
order to get this done the way it is written out. 

06 19 k2 k5 CDR Okay. That's fair enough. I think we all - it's

Lost CMP EKG. Roger. You notice that my main

Roger. I Just checked on that a minute ago, 
and we were reading 26. 9> Let me check again, 
here. 26.7 to 26.6 ve're reading here, Walt. 
Okay. Well, it triggered off the master alarm 
a little hit ago, and I'm reading right at 26 
on the onboard meter. 
Thank you very much.

Page 7^3 

C6 20 Ik 32 CDR Roger. Loud and clear. The IMS Mas teat for 

the duration of the turn plus 30 seconds, which 
is when we turn it on, is 0.3 feet per second. 

06 20 Ik kZ CC Roger. 0.3. 

06 20 lU U6 CDR That's a minute and 36" seconds. 

06 20 Ik 57 CC Bill, I would like to have you go over again 

what you have proposed for the DELTA-V counter 
setting on this burn. 

06 20 15 07 CC Okay. The DELTA-V counter setting will be 

1728.0. What this does - it is 100 feet higher 
than the DELTA-V that you want to get, and you 
will turn the thrust switches off at 100.0 in- 
dication on the EELTA.-V C counter, in other 
words , with a hundred feet remaining. 

06 20 15 35 CDR What is the reasoning behind that? The thing 

is built to turn itself off at zero. That's one 
of our primary checks on the SCS cutoff on the 
DELTA-V counter. 

06 20 15 k6 CDR I'll turn it off if it doesn't turn itself off 

at zero. This is a complete departure from the way 
we normally use the DELTA-V counter and the SCS 
technique. 

06 20 15 59 CC Roger. That is correct. However, the DTO calls 

for this as part of the test. I think it's in 
that little burn sheet on the inside cover of 
the flight plan. 



Page Jkh 

06" 20 16 10 CDK The DTO Is wrong, then. 

06 20 l6 19 CDR The DELTA-V cutoff In the DTO, aa I see it - 

we've looked at it - Bays cutoff through thrust 
switches. I don't think enough people understand 
the EMS. X found that out as soon as ve got it 
on board. 

06 20 16 UO CC Walt, are you there? 

06 20 16 1*5 IMP I'm here. 

06 20 16 k9 CC Roger. Ve need fuel cell number 2 hack. ON at 

lfifc plus 30. That's 30 minutes prior to the 
burn, instead of the 15 that I gave you. 

06 20 16 57 IMP Okay. I'll do that, but it looks to me like 

it's going to - that will give us just about 
wwmigii time to get up the alarm stage again. 
Dcnn is still reading 170 about on the condenser 
exhaust and b30 on the skin. 

06 20 17 U CC Let me see if I can get a compromise here. 

05 20 17 lit MP Okay. I'll do - I'll go with whatever you guys 

want, but I would like to make sure ve aren't 
jumping the gun. Also, I would like to know 
what your trim data shows on those radiators, 
so I will know whether to turn the pumps off 
or not. 

06 20 17 25 CC Roger. Stand by. I've asked for that. It's 

still in process. 
06 20 17 30 IMP Okay. Standing by. 



Page 7*»5 

06 20 17 52 CDR Bill, you do understand the normal cutoff at a 

BELTA-V? That's what it's for. It will teat 
me any time. 

06 20 17 58 CC Soger. I understand that. In fact, the way I 

had understood thiB was that you were using the 
thrust switches to turn it OFF Just to check 
them. It's part of a — 

06 20 18 07 CDR They better work; that's all we've got. They 

got three modes of cutoffs: G&H cutoff, DELTA-V 
counter going through zero, and then DELTA-V 
thrust switches. And I'm convinced that they 
must work, or I wouldn't he up here. 

06 20 18 23 CC Bight. This was a late change, Wally, and you 

have a 100 foot per second there to play with, 
so to speak. If they don't cut if off, then the 
DELTA-V will cut it off. 

06 20 18 3U CDR Roger. That's a late change to everything then; 

that is not the way we've been doing hum 5. 
And it says nothing about biasing the DELTA-V 
counter 100 feet per second. We've never done 
it. I'm hair-triggered for zero. 

06 20 19 25 CDR Hey, Bill. 

06 20 19 26 CC Go. 

06 20 19 28 CDR I guess you have raised something in my mind. 

We did have an SCS hum where the DELTA-V 
counter did cut off, didn't we? 

06" 20 19 3^ CC Roger. That is affirmative.

cut it down to 50. Our problem was the sun hit 
right on the DELTA-V counter, and the burn switch 
was up full aright; end that was not sufficient

06* 21 51 25 CDR Got it. 

06 21 51 26 IMP We can't possibly have an internal problem, Jack. 

One of the things that surprised me was when I 
took, fuel cell 2 OFF, fuel cell 1 then started 
to «*Hi»h in condenser exhaust and skin temp and 
at a greater rate than fuel cell 3, although both 
of them were picking up the same amount of added 
load. Fuel cell 3 held everything right in there 
its controls seem to be a lot better than fuel 
cell 1. And as soon as I put fuel cell 2 back 
on the line to pick up its share of the load, 
fuel cell 1 came back on down again. 

06 21 51 57 CC Roger. We saw all that, Walt. We are looking 

right now at something in the regenerator there.

06 22 15 U6 CDR Roger. I've stopped losing at playing the game 

with this deal on. Let's get a good mark on 
the perigee torquing. 

06 22 15 56 CDR The whole thing's going to be automatic power 

as far as I'm concerned so that fuels on the 
ground test, and let's get some data on how 
fast it goes up at this high velocity at per- 
igee. 

06 22 16 07 CC Okay. Real fine, Wally.

As I see it, perigee is at about 1*3 - just 7 
minutes before the start of the test. 
Okay;' Copy that. 

You might get prepared for fuel usage on this, 
too; I'd like to find out if this might be a 
setup you'd nave just prior to a burn for some 
later mission. 

Okay. We'll get a real good hack on it as you 
go through. 
Very good. 

And I'm ready - what were you asking me about 
on the movie camera? 

Oh, yes. I'm going to try to do some strip - 

mapping. We did some in the States the other 

day when the hurricane was coming through. 
- / 

Roger. 

And we shot at one frame a second with an lflmm 
lens, and I'm not sure whether we have over- 
lap or not. Could you check on that? 
Okay. Will do. 

And — we may need to use six frames a second, 

but, if so, we can handle that, too. 

Okay. 

Houston, Apollo 7- 
Go ahead, Walt. 

What about a map update when you get a chance, 
Jack?

Very nice. We're up on It. 

And the quad balance Is such that we have got 
■n those redlines. 

Jack, does that 598 include the 60-80 pounds of 
unusable? 

Includes the unusable. 

That's a chart update? 

Roger. That's your chart update, Walt. 

Okay. I vant to see what kind of fuel we use 

after this session. 

Okay. 

We're whistling right through perigee. 
Are you plotting these on your chart down 
there, Jack? 
Tes, sir; I am. 

Okay. Look at the difference between yester- 
day's number 666, and a 598. Like 68 pounds. 
Affirmative . We are calling it here. 
That's quite a big drop. 
I agree. 

Say, Jack, this is Donn. 
Go ahead. 

That seemed like an awful lot of fuel for no 
more than we've done since yesterday. Could 
you have someone run through their data down

and in what condition we used up all the fuel?

to your question on the l6mm camera: at 

90 miles, when you are going through perigee, 

you'll have about 70 percent overlap at one 

frame per second, and at apogee of 245, you'll 

have about a 75 percent overlap.

Houston, Apollo 7. How do you read? 

7, could you say again your message? 

The DT0 requires low bit rate ... is it playing 

when we leave your control? 

Okay. Stand by, Walt. 

Walt, we're playing the DSE as normal. We have 
a high bit rate over the stations. We'll put 
it low bit rate RECORD as we get LOS and
