Introduction 



This is the transcription of the Apollo 7 flight crew communications 
as recorded on board the spacecraft data storage equipment (DSE), and 
subsequently transmitted (dumped) to Manned Space Flight Network stations 
and ships. Magnetic tapes containing dumped voice and onboard recorded 
ground elapsed time (GET) were forwarded to the NASA Manned Spacecraft 
Center, Houston, Texas. Transcription of these tapes was managed by the 
Apollo Spacecraft Program Office with the assistance of personnel from 
the office of the Director of Flight Crew Operations. 

The Apollo 7 mission was flown October 11 to 21, 19 68. 

Communicators in the text are identified as follows: 

Command module: 

CDR Commander Walter M. Schirra, Jr. 

CMP Command module pilot Donn F. Eisele 

LMP Lunar module pilot R. Walter Cunningham 

SC Unidentifiable crewmember 



Mission Control Center: 

CC Capsule communicator (CAP COMM) 



Remote sites : 

CT Communications technician (COMM TECH) 



In the text, a series of three dots (...) is used to designate 
those portions of the communications which could not be transcribed 
because of garbling. One dash (-) is used to indicate a speaker's pause 
or a self-interruption and subsequent completion of a thought. Two 
dashes (- -) are used to indicate an interruption by another speaker' or 
a point at which a recording was abruptly terminated.

if I hold it? 

00 00 25 00 CMP What we need to get here, Wally, is that 

reservoir. Can you get at it? 

00 00 25 06 LMP I'd like to loosen up on my shoulder, harness 

here, and I can get at a couple of circuit 
breakers, too. 

00 00 25 17 CDR Okay, let's go ahead. 

00 00 25 19 CMP Okay, the next one's the hard one. We've got 

to get the glycol reservoir bypass valve OPEN, 
with the inlet and outlet valves CLOSED.

Not the radiator "but the glycol ... It's 
awfully hard to reach, Walt. 

Yes , I am going to loosen up my shoulder 
harness if you think it is okay, so far. 
Okay, not unplug it, just loosen it, huh? 
What do you think, Wally? . 

I don't think - Oh hell, we nan't get shot 
down. Are there any systems that you are 
worried about? 

Not a thing. 

Donn, why don't you let me - oh, are you 
already going? Go ahead. 

Did you unstrap awhile ago? 

Oh, I just want to get my shoulder harness 
unhooked. 

One big question mark: we still have to work 
on the system to see if the radiator is flow- 
ing right. 

Yes, I'm just loosening my belt a little - 
the strap's a little long. 

That was a lot easier than any simulation 
we've had though, wasn't it? 

Yes, we didn't have ... trying to get in our 
knickers. 

Yes, I want to go to - let's go to hot mikes 

and see how it is. 

I can't stand my seat belts ... 

Boy, I've got a couple of problem circuit 
breakers over here myself, Walt. 

I'll guard the hand controls while you guys 
wrestle with your belts. I can't make it up. 
... Okay, ... lock it out here.

Never did get that swizzle stick, did we? 
No. 

Okay, give me those DO's again. 

Okay, let's see. Bypass to OPEN, first - 
the "bypass valve OPEN first , and then the 
reservoir outlet valve CLOSED , and last, the 
inlet valve CLOSED. 

Okay , that ' s done . 

How about that, have you ever "been ... over 
here. 

Well, let's see, we are about 27 minutes 
into the flight. We might try to flow our 
radiators. Let's go ECS radiator flow control 
to POWER, Donn. 

POWER. 

Okay, glycol to radiator primary valves, push, 
Wally. 

Look at him go. (Laughter) 

This is our first (Laughter) 

Oh well. (Laughter) ... 

What's going on. I can't see what you're 
doing. 

I can't understand moving around and can't 
get hack. (Laughter) I grabbed the valve 
and start doing "boom" - - 

First time had so much room up here. It's a 
real ball. easy back there. 

This is going to be a real expedition to get 
back in these beauties. (Laughter) 

I still have - I've still got two circuit 
breakers I haven't gotten. 



00 00 28 57 LMP Okay, I'm going to ... - I'm going to put 

STEAM/URINE DUMP HEATERS in, switch should 
be ON. Verify that switch is ON down there 
if you can see it, Donn. 

00 00 29 Oh CMP Yes. It's ON, Walt. 

00 00 29 05 CDR Do you want to move the couch back up yet, 

or do you need to? 

00 00 29 08 LMP Really, I don't think I need to; I'm up here. 

00 00 29 10 CMP I think we - yes , I think we ought to leave

00 00 29 16 CDR . Yes. 

00 00 29 IT CMP unstow down there, I have to have it in 

this position to start with. 

Hey, I found a good place for the pens, gang. 

For the what? 

Pen, like this, see? 

Oh, that's cute. That ought to take care of 
our pencil jazz. 

Okay, let's see if we've got any other good 
things to do here. 

Did you get completely unpacked, Wally? 

I had to. Whenever ... I pulled that handle 
I just started doing a 180. I had to get 
another hand out. 

Okay, we want to check - we want to monitor 
pretty close for the outlet temperature, 
Donn, to be less than the inlet. It looks 
like it is already doing that. 

00 00 29 53 CMP It's coming down. It's down to ... sq far. 

00 00 29 56 LMP Yes.

Yes. 

You know, I haven't even hardly looked out 
yet. That's only the second time I've looked 
out. 

Okay, why don't you take a minute and look 
out. It's much fun.

Okay, I can finish by then. Yes. 

I think it's coming down, Walt. This scale 
is drifting, it's a little hard to tell. 

Okay, ECS radiator heater to PRIMARY 1. 

Roger, heater to PRIM 1. 

The talk-back should be gray on those radia-

GLYCOL EVAP, right there to AUTO. 

.Roger, AUTO. The STEAM/URINE DUCT HEATERS 
circuit breakers are "both closed. 

Okay. Primary and secondary quantities. 

Okay, the LH^ vents should close at 31 min- 
utes. Let's listen and see if we hear any- 
thing. I'm not sure what's going to happen. 
(Laughter) 

Hey, don't we have to keep - I'm a little 
warm, how about you? 

I'm a little warm too, and the suit - but 
the suit inlet TEMP is still holding about 
the same, hi degrees, but I am coming up in 
temperature. I don't know whether it's the 
work, or what. 

Well, we've got a much lower flow I expect 
than when- we to the gas. 

Yes. 

I'm at that same temperature. It's colder 
than hell. 

... wait, Donn. I figured you wouldn't mind. 
What? 

I figured you wouldn't mind waiting 

What's that? 

- - getting warm. It happens that way. 

Oh yes, I figured - if it's a good chill-down

Day 1 7 



Looks like the radiators are flawing okay. 
I'd like to leave their there, arid we've got - 
as far as we can go 'til Dorm gets-'out of 
the couch. 

Okay, how about that cesual burn? 

It looks like we have got 73 degrees going in 
and about 60 degrees coming out of the radia- 
tor turn. 

Yes, they are all beginning to work. 

I want you guys to make note of the approach- 
ing night now, which is going to occur at 
about 36 minutes. Look for things like the 
terminator, cloud layers - I hope you have 
no doubt in your mind what yaw is, do you? 

No, but I am not sure just how accurately I 
could pin it down, either, without trying a 
couple of times. 

You need a couple of lines. Donn has the 
good lines, I've got - I think 1*11 put the 
C0AS up there. 

This one is almost perfect for your yaw and 
roll. It's the pitch that's not too good. 

By the horizon, we could get some roll. 

Okay. 

Boy, it gets easy to work in here with that 
zero-g stuff, huh? 

Yes, it sure is, isn't it? All the difference 
in the world. 

Kind of handy. 

... bump my butt ... like that - - (Laughter) 
Okay, let's see if that beauty works now. 




""QtiriPR 'Ti A i ,i 



00 00 33 20 LMP Okay, Dcnn, - I was trying to tell you on 

the pad there, we haven't had that stupid 
thing working in the simulator, the propellant 
tank temperature. 

00 00 33 31 CMP The light bulb works .... gang. 

00 00 33 33 LMP It does. It's an open- loop manual control, 

55 to 75- I thought the first time we got 
down I*d see if heater A hacks it - if not 
we'll try it with "both heaters. It is a 
2lt-hour job on about a 7-hour cycle, I think. 

00 00 33 ^9 CMP Okay, Walt, you just told me - that is some- 

thing to keep an eye on now and then. 

00 00 33 58 CDR Oh man, is this C0AS beautiful for yaw. God 

damn. See, it rotated- See what I'm doing? 
Let me scoot over here, the flag is down. 
See, I rotate it in pitch - I rotate the 
thing in roll axis with the pitch pulses. 

00 00 3U l6 CMP Just put it where I want it, and man, I've 

got a point to pick right down it. Look at 
that night coming up on us. 

00 00 3k 23 CDR Everybody's talking about 3EF. As you go 

into you see the fuzzy - there is no 

horizon any more. You can't define it. 
Look at it, Walt. 

00 00 3U 31 LMP Yes. 

00 00 3U 32 CDR There is no way to tell where the hell the 

horizon is. 

00 00 3k 3k CMP Oh man, that is terrible, just a big blur. 

00 00 3l* 38 LMP Yes, yes, there's no way to tell.

though..

OOMriDCHTIAL » Day i 



00 00 3h U3 LMP - - Let me read CRYO tanks onto the tape 

here, and we will be pretty much caught up. 
Okay? 

00 00 3k U8 LMP Okay, we have hydrogen pressure is sitting 

about - it looks like 230 on tank 1 and 
about 2lv5 on tank 2. 

00 00 3*t 58 LMP 0 £ tank 1 pressure is 870, tank 2 is about 

860 - make that tank 1 about 880, and the 
third tank 870, and tank 2, 860 ; and the 
cycle on the oxygen tank, on our gage at 
least, seems to be between about 850 to 900 
instead of the greenline areas. The hydrogen 
quantity - we lifted off with about 95 on the 
left and 93 on the right. Oxygen quantity is 
100 percent. 

00 00 35 31 CDR Very good. Ho hum. 

00 00 35 39 CMP I'd like to point out that hydrogen pressure 

number 1 was out of the green. Before lift- 
off, it was about 220. 

00 00 35 h6 CDR It was low? 

00 00 35 U7 LMP Yes, I think you called my attention to it 

Just before it started cycling. That gage 
is not too good. 

00 00 35 51 CMP That reminds me, I was watching that DELTA-V 

counter that first set. We had 90 000 on 
there, and I reset it. (Laughter) 

00 00 36 00 CMP It looks good now. 

00 00 36 02 CMP How about turning that DELTA-V OFF when you 

come back up here. I need a ... Okay, I'll 
' go OFF and go to network. 

00 00 36 11 CDR - Okay. OFF and AUTO. 

00 00 36 15 CMP Okay now, we need to bring some lights up 

here to see, even. Do you want to try an 
integral lightup a little bit here to see if 
it works - the integral?

What about going to - well, if we went to 
boost, we got our heads jammed up there, 
don't we? I mean - - 

Yes. 

I think we're better off here until we need 
to go to boost. 

Okay . 

You mean dock? 
Dock, yes. 

I'm going to bring some light up here. 

Were we supposed to pick sombody up at 36? 
It's hO now. 

Yes, we're at hO. 

Houston CAP COMM. Apollo 7. We're S-band 
over Tananarive. 

You got to lock up one. 

I don't think we've got S-band. We have r.o 
lockup on the right antenna. 

Houston CAP C0MM, Apollo 7 over Tananarive. 
Do you read? 

Say something else, — 

Something else. We never did get this in 
because of the status of that simulator. Is 
the VHP antenna - we've always been able to 
ignore it. 

Yes. 

I tell you what you want to do, anytime we 
can. Now,. I've got my C0AS up. We'll try 
to stay ahead of this beauty all the time.

Well, all we have to do now is just coast at

that's the first event.

10 minutes to go before we pick up Carnarvon. 

Hey, Wally, look at this damn strap flying

I wondered what you were playing with. 

Yes. I got it trapped and then I lost it. 

There's a little nut that you want to look 
for, a hex nut, about the diameter of my 
finger. 

Oh, yes? 

It came off the PYR0 BATTERY terminal. Of 
course, they lost it, they put another one 
on. It's a silvery gold color. 

It's tracking in here nice. 

Let's take a look for the stars. They've all 
"blacked out. 

Oooooooooh! I'll tell you. It's a good

It's pretty clear, but - - 

Oh, "beautiful sky over here, yes.

I bet that's it. Okay, we've got that one 
logged, I assume. 

Yes, the tape's running. Look at - - Inci- 
dentally, the thing we're going to have to 
watch on that tape is, when we get over a 
station now, they're going to dump it, and 
for that period of time we've lost it. 

Oh, that's weird. I see two points of light 
on the ground. Looks like the stars are 
going through the earth again. 

Yes, I see it. (Laughter) 

Yes, I see it too. 

It's a trick of that simulator.

a little bit flatter than what we saw in the 
simulator. 

Yes. 

Just a little. 

Did you see that flash then down there? 
I sure did. 

Hey, I'll tell you something. The stars are 
clearer here, Donn, than I've seen them on 
the ground. I can point out Pleiades very 
nicely.

Yes, but of course, it could possibly get 
worse, you know, as the flight goes on, 
though. That's kind of -

that they're not occluded by that damn

Yes sir! No, that goez off like the - that's 
the jettison motor, isn't it? 

Yes. That's just a jettison motor, yes. 

Yes. 

I didn't see much out there out through the 
center window. I saw a little orange flame 
and some little pieces go by. 

Well, that's something else I want to get 
on the tape during boost. Just before 2 min- 
utes, I saw a wisp of smoke between the boost 
protective cover and my number 2 rendezvous

Day 1 20 



Like something was cooking. It really drew 
my attention. I'm just naturally conscious 
of something like that. 

1*11 be darned! 

It was outside of the spacecraft, but between 
the spacecraft and the boost protective 
cover. Well, Walt - - 

Yes? 

You know how the airglow is. You can see 
stars at 12 o'clock, below us. 

12 o'clock, you said? 

See that big white star? 

Yes. Oh, yes. 

Well, that airglow is way up there. It's a 
good 2 or 3 degrees. 

But what bothers me - is that a star? 

That's a star you see there - watch it come 
up through. See that bright star right 
there? 

It's very bright. 

It's coming up through the airglow, and 

now it's right on the edge of it. 

You know what that might be? It might he 
dovm around where Sirius could be. 

Yes, and I think it is. 

Yes. 

See, now it's out of the airglow. 

I see a couple of meteorites. That's what 
those lights are moving.

Very likely. 

Yes, I saw some meteorites burning themselves 
in. 

That's fun to see, Walt. 

At last Walt has a window to play with. 

Yes. (Laughter) 

That's why I noticed the tower going some- 
where. It was the first time I could see 
out. 

Yes. 

But look, I've got - ohat is Sirius coming up 
very nicely. You can see it through the 
airglow for a long. way. 

Yes, I saw it about 2 or 3 degrees "below the 
airglow. 

All I can say is the target '11 be easier to 
find here, Donn. 

Yes, I hope they work through the optics, too. 
(Laughter) 

(Laughter) 

Okay, we have about 6 minutes to go to Carnar- 
von. Let's - What do we need over Carnarvon? 

Turn your - turn the flood out a second, 
Wally. 

Do what? 

Is that the Southern Cross you got out there?

was looking at part of - -

No, it might not be. It might be the bottom 
of the belt - - 

No, it'd be down in the belt a little more, 
coming up. 

We're going to have Orion nicely, though. 
Yes. 

We may be able to hack it. (Laughter) 

And what is that other star that we got down 
there, Donn, that's just below Orion, the 
hard one to find? 

Gavavalon? No, that would be in the wrong 
place. 

No ... 

No . . . around Sirius. 
Do you see Sirius now?

No, we're circulating it just by moving. 

Okay, now, let's open the suit return air

Let me get this rolling . . .

Well, that cuts both you guys out of your

Let's get out of them. 

Okay.

Okay, I've got to - a helmet stowage bag to

Boy, was that ever pretty! I never saw any- 
thing like it. If this thing pops off and 
the minute it got out to sunlight — there's 
a whole hunch of little pieces and there's 
two little, two larger pieces or - well, guess 
that would be the two covers, sitting out 
there twirling around, still reflecting sun- 
light. 

You see both of them? 
Yes , I still see them - 
Beautiful. 

There must be something else that went by 
... There's soifle light straying into the 
sextant. 

Apollo 7, Houston. You are 1 minute LOS 
Canary and we've computed a cabin leak rate.

I just unzipped a little bit at the bottom. 
I'm dry, I'm not a wetback. It's just that 
when I peed, it filled the bag and shifted 
way over to one side and twisted my penis in 
the front there. Boy, it really hurt!

come on when I turned the secondary heaters 
on, and I'm judging now with the high radia- 
tor outlet temperature , I turned the - cycled 
the secondary heaters ON and OFF and had no 
change of current, so apparently it came ON 
and was immediately shut OFF by the LOGIC in 
the secondary radiator loop. When I turned 
the secondary coolant loop pump to AC 1, in 
the EVAP mode, the glycol evaporator outlet 
temperature came dovn, overshot the control

Good, may not have to move it again. 

Okay, back to your mixing valve problem. I 
was wondering about that. This thing seems 
to be - The primary GLYCOL EVAP INLET TEMP 
valve is sitting on MIN. It hasn't moved off 
of there and I don't know - - 

I think that's called MIN heat. That's okay. 
That is where it belongs. 

That means MIN heat? 

Yes. 

What's that mean? 

It means it is mixing MIN, which is where 
you want it. 

Okay, that is where it is. 

Okeedokee. ... secondary glycol. You know, 
we are going to use up a bunch of RCS fuel 
if we have to keep taking ou-d these damn 
rates all the time. 

I know. 

We're not going to have as much as we thought, 
maybe, for certain items. It hasn't really 
changed, however. 

Walt, did you say you had sticky fingers? 
Oh, you did get one? I was going to say you 
could get a Kleenex and I'll wet it for you. 
You can do that. I did that. 

Oh, sob, where did the tape go? 

Huh? We're going to need it? Okay, we'd 
better start looking for it. Had it taped 
to the wall, and it is not there anymore. 
It'll show up somewhere. The way everything 
goes up, I expect to find it on the ceiling 
somewhere. I don't see it up there.

Yes, this Is what you targeted for if you 
did the burn. 

Yes. ... did it again. That, is just about 
an hour and a half from now, I guess. 

How soon are we supposed to do the retro 
check? 

Okay. It's the latest ... 

Yes, you wa.it to cycle through for GO /NO-GO. 

Theoretically, we are ready for a ... look 
at those angles come up there. 

I see. 

3-1/2 hours from now. We can go up through 
the . . . region. 

Yes, that's all I'm going to do. No, oh, no. 

Listen, how far do you want to go with Pl+0? 
To the gimbal checks? 

The gimbal checks? Don't we turn it OFF 
then? 

Yes. 

Okay, that verifies that PUO is GO for the 
burn. That's the way we will have to do it. 

How, ... if we really do have to do this, 
we've got to remember to reload the right 
numbers in P30 because they got those data 
out again. 

Okay, check the DAP ... 

Guess they did. 

Yes. 



00 05 31 33 CKP 32U6. That's very good. I got - what'd I 

get here - I got 86 and 30, I got 8l and 33

00 05 31 57 CMP I know, I just wondered what these numbers 

are. I obviously didn't know what they mean. 

00 05 32 0k CMP Well, why would they change after lift-off?

00 05 32 08 CMP Well, I'll go ahead and load them in, anyway.

00 05 32 31 CMP That realignment worked out very nicely. I 

got, I got the damn stupid alarm just like 
you always do on this freaking pick-a-pair. 
I vent ahead and looked in there and just 
happened to look out, and the first thing I 
saw was the square of Pegasus , so I grabbed 
Alpheratz right off the bat and got that one, 
and then T tried to get Mirfak but he was out 
of the field of view, so on the way after 
Mirfak, I found Navi , so I used it instead. 

00 05 32 58 SC (Laughter). 

00 05 33 02 CMP And it worked out. And the first time I went 

through, we got about a half a degree on the 
first two registers, and 2-1/2 on the third 
one. 

00 05 33 13 CDR On the ... 

00 05 33 15 CMP On the gyro torquing, but that was because we 

were just on a coarse align. We expected to 
be a couple of degrees off. But I was a bit 
surprised at 2-1/2. I thought that was kind 
of big. So, but the second line came up and 
it nearly was zero. One of them was 12 000 
something ... I could verify it, and we got 
a 180, 180 zero on the DSKY for the preferred 
attitude for the burn in PhO. Yes, PhO. So 
I would say that we're in very good shape. 
I reloaded the DAP for G&C control and four- 
jet ullage, and ML71 DEADBAND half degree rate 
if you need it.

slightly anomalous behavior there on the

it over pretty well. We can't see anything 
that would cause high 0^ flow: surge tanks 

holding well, cabin is not increasing. So 
we kind of have a feeling it's probably a 
detector failure.

they inadvertently taken canister 2 in there. 












I put canister 2 down to side B, which removed 












canister 1, and canister 2 is now where it be-

00 10 37 ^7 CC Roger, Wally. Readback is correct. I think 

vhen ve get over Hawaii we're going to want to 
make a E memory dump via VERB 74. Essentially, 
we'll be starting out with few feet of VERB 7h, 
ENTER, and then wait 1 minute. 

00 10 38 05 CDR Houston, Apollo 7- I would like to log at 10 

plus 35 I had 11 squirts on this water pistol, 
and I'd like to add that the beef stew bites 
tend to be very crumbly. And a lot of crumbs 
when you open the package even. 

00 10 38 20 CMP Pretty crummy food! 

00 10 38 27 CC Copy the crumbly food. 

00 10 38 k9 CDR Houston, as long as we're logging water in * 

squirts, 17 squirts for CDR at 10 hours - - 

00 10 39 05 CDR Houston, Apollo 7. Do you copy? 

00 11 09 32 LMP Houston, Apollo 7, go. And are you monitoring 

our jet problem? We've been waiting for about 
20 minutes now for steam pressure to increase, 
about ready to reservice water boilers. 

00 11 10 01 LHP Houston, Apollo 7. Do you read? 

00 11 10 0k CC Apollo 7, Houston. Affirmative. Read you. 

00 11 10 10 LMP Roger, I'm reading you very weak and it seems 

we've been running into a lot of static here, 
but in the meantime we're left without our tape 
recorder running. We don't quite know the 
status of it, but we are left that way. We'd 
like to be using it to record some of these 
problems. We - I should be observing the 



i 



anomaly we got in our steam pressure now, and 
I'm going to reservice the water boiler. 

00 11 10 3^ CC Roger, I understand, you're servicing the water 

boiler. 

00 11 10 39 CDR Houston, Apollo 7. Let's get those guys in the 

■backroom to keep track of the tape recorder for 
us, please. 

00 11 12 28 CDR Okay, at 11 - at 11 hours and 10 minutes into 

the flight, CDR logged 25 clicks on the water 
gun- 

00 11 2k 53 LMP At about 11:15, LMP took ... clicks on the 

water gun. 

00 11 30 10 LMP And we've chlorinated the potable water at 

11 hours 30 minutes into the flight. The 
potable water quantity is reading about 87 per- 
cent. 

00 11 59 38 LMP ... 11 hours and 58 minutes into the flight, 

and frame h ... 

00 12 06 Ik CC Apollo 7, Houston. AOS via Mercury. 

00 12 06 18 CDR Roger. 

00 12 06 27 LMP Houston, Apollo 7- We temporarily had our 

primary loop back working on the line. It is 
beginning to look like the primary water flow 
valve. For a while, we thought it was stuck 
shut. However, I was able to, by playing 
with it , eventually get it to come back up 
with steam pressure reading normal for awhile. 
It's holding around a temperature of about 1+3. 
Right now, it's pegged low again. It looks 
like it's possibly the water control section 
of the 21*0 controller. 

00 12 07 05 CC Walt, say again there the last sentence there. 

It looks like what? 

00 12 07 09 LMP I believe it's probably getting down to the 

water control section of the 2^0 controller. 



I 



Day 1 



Also, ve had a DTO to accomplish here, the 
CRYO stratification for hydrogen. It's - both 
tanks are over 90 , plus or minus 5 , percent 
on the hydrogen , and the procedure calls to let 
the pressure rise to about 260 to 265, and I 
believe that's the spec number, and I'd like 
EECOM to tell me how high these pressures have 
been rising before they - the heaters shut off 
so I'll know where to start doing the DTO. Over. 



00 12 07 1*6 CC Roger. Stand by, we'll get it for you. 

00 12 07 1*8 LMP More specifically, Ron, I need the DEADBAITD 

that the hydrogen pressure tank 1 and tank 2 
have been running back and forth between. 



00 12 11 51 CC Wait 1 - I think - P52. Don't we just pick a 

pair out of the CMC? 

00 12 12 01 CDR Roger, we'll go ahead like that. 

00 12 12 03 CC Roger. 

00 12 12 07 LMP Did anybody come up with any suggestions on our 

ECS problem? 

00 12 12 09 LMP The malfunctions procedures call for activating 

the secondary loop. Whenever the primary radior 
out - radiator outlet temperature gets above 1*8. 
I think - now, we've just been doing that and 
kind of going by the glycol EVAP TEMP. I'm now 
reading almost 60 on the radiator outlets 
system, now that my glycol EVAP outlet check 
has gone to about 52. I would like to hold to 
not activating the secondary loop until the 
primary glycol evaporator outlet TEMP hits 50. 

00 12 12 1*3 CC Apollo 7, Houston. We concur on that. We kind 

of believe that we're really - not really hot 
enough, and then we're starting to cool down 
when it starts evaporating, maybe overshooting, 
going too cold on the thing. We're working on 
that right now. 



Day 1 105 



00 12 13 0U LMP Okay. During the night pass, the glycol 

evaporator outlet temperature got down as low 
as about 1+5, something like that, before we 
got the evaporator working again. 

00 12 13 16 CC Roger. 

00 12 13 23 LMP Do you have anybody sending us extreme data on 

what the hydrogen pressure should cycle between? 

00 12 13 59 LMP The potable water was chlorinated around 11:30 

with a chlorine ampule and a buffer ampule. 

00.12 18 33 LMP It's about 12:18:30. It's 12:18:30 into the 

flight and '. . . 

00 12 26 33 CC Apollo 7, Houston. I have your DEADBANDS for 

H 2 1 and H 2 2 tanks. 

00 12 26 hO LMP Roger. Go. 

0O 12 26 1+1 CC Roger. Tank 1 - H 2 tank 1, 228 to 2h6; Hg 

tank 2, 237 £mcL 255- 

00 12 27 01 LMP Roger. 228 to 21+6, 237 to 255, and it turns 

out that the pressures are cycling back and 
forth in the neighborhood of these readings? 

00 12 27 10 CC That's affirmative in the R/0 AUTO heaters, 

and you can tell Wally that it looks like 
stars 11 and 12 would probably be pretty good 
stars to try for. 

00 12 27 22 LMP Roger, 11 and 12. Thank you. 

00 12 27 3l+ LMP And we'll accomplish the zero-g test after the 

alignment. We're still checking on ... 

00 12 1+6 11 CC Apollo 7, Houston. 30 seconds to LOS. 

00 12 1+6 l6 CDR Roger, Houston. We see you later. 

00 12 1+6 17 CC Roger, thank you.

number 7, Menkar. And we're going to go ahead 
and take the gyro-torquing angles. Is that, 
acceptable? 

00 12 1*6 53 CC Apollo 7, Houston. We'll take those angles. 

00 13 11 U8 LMP Hey, Ron, it's not a good situation, but I 

don't consider we've got anything of real prob- 
lems with that primary coolant loop right now. 

00 13 12 12 CC ... 7, we concur with that. 

00 13 12 20 CC 7, Houston. We are just now taking a look at 

the dumped data that we've picked up at Redstone 

00 13 12 27 CDR Roger. 

00 13 2k 20 LMP At 13 hours 2k minutes and 30 seconds into this 

flight, we took on magazine Peter, frame - 
frames 7 and 8» what we believe to be the Red 
Sea. 

00 13 27 26 CDR At 13:27:32, magazine P for Peter, frame lit or 

15: the Gulf of Oman. 

00 13 31 38 LMP At 13 hours and 32 minutes, I'm finishing up 

the first, step of P5.8 CRY0 zero-g test for 
hydrogen. Pressurizing the - the pressure 
seemed to be stabilized some 2 minutes after 
the time of . . . fuel cells ... 

00 13 32 12 LMP My data shows that there's possibly a slight' 

drop in pressure when I switch the fans ON. 
However, after looking at the needle, I can't 
really be sure. The range of pressures covered 
is very narrow, and we plan to operate by a set 
of ground figures. The pressure band will be 
my own estimation . . . there is no ... 

00 13 35 37 LMP This is the . . . 

00 13 37 21 LMP At 13:37 into the flight, frame 58 on magazine M 

was taken of the sidehatch window, documenting 
the continuing degradation of the outer frame 
of that window.

00 13 1+1 09 CC Roger, we'd like to get VERB 06, NOUTf 21; read 

out the PIPA count. We would like to get your 
onboard readout. Our Y PIPA count down here - 
it has been zero for a long time. 

00 13 1+1 3h CDR Roger, we can't very well fix that ... about 

2 minutes. 

00 13 1+1 1+3 LMP Hey, Ron, I completed P5.8 for the hydrogen 

tank pressure at 90 percent level. It didn't 
look to me like we have any stratification. 
Pressures that I noted down did drop a little 
bit, but I'm not sure what distance the NSR 
reading is . 

00 13 1+2 11 CC Walt, you're coming through HF this time across 

there - and I can't - I can't read you very 
well. Can you talk a little slower? 

00 13 1+2 18 LMP Roger, understand. I did complete the hydrogen 

tanks at 90 percent portions of the CRY0 
stratification test, and I logged the data, 
but it is my own estimation that we didn't 
really have any stratification. 

00 13 1+5 07 CDR Islands off China in the Sea of Japan . . .

00 13 1+7 5U CDR Frame number 19, time 13:1+7=56; small island. 

00 13 52 1+2 CC this upcoming maneuver. We will yield 

about nominal displacement a NC - RCC 1. The 
S-IVB orbit on third day, however, yields a 
displacement between 63 and 87 miles, if we go 
ahead and make the burn. And this is all based 
on beacon tracking, so it's pretty good. 

00 13 53 27 CDR They think, there's two guys in the LM; let's 

get to it. 

00 13 53 31 CC Roger. We're working on the update and we'll

voided myself at the same time. I noticed my 
general language on the . . . 

00 21 58 15 LMP At any rate, on that - there are several prob- 

lems have come up that we hadn't particularly 
expected. One is the constant wear garment. Id 
addition to that, there's nothing really large 
enough to accommodate the bag. It makes it quite 
messy when it springs back after completion of 
a defecation. The other alternative is to 
take the - the constant wear garment off the 
shoulders and put it down around your knees . 
Now, in order to do that, you have to disconnect 
the BIOMED sensors, which are not color coded 
incidentally, and the - very difficult for them 
to hook them all back up to the right place . . . 

00 21 59 12 LMP Other than that, the problems are really 

surprisingly few. I voided myself simultane- 
ously, dumped the urine collection. Cleaning 
myself up, I had relatively little mess. I 
utilized two of the tissues, each of which were 
used, folded, used again, and then used a third 
tissue which had earlier been soaked with water 
from the water gun, cleaning up rather well, arid 
then went ahead and used the wet-wipe that is 
provided. It's worth noting that those wet-wipes 
that come in the fecal bag do not have any Velcro 
on them for attaching to the wall, and that's a 
definite handicap.

May be some help in AUTO OPTICS here. 

Really? Man, that's cool. Yes, I think we 
got her wired. What I'm going to do is sit 
here and let P20 cook away, now - - 

Apollo 7 , Houston . 

- - yntil after we get the backup data, and 
then I'll go on into Pl+1, and you can start a 
slow pitchdown to start that burn attitude, 
and if it looks good, I suggest we go ahead 
and do the - - 

Apollo 7 » Houston. 

- - DAP again. Okay, let it take it to their 
attitude and - - 

Go ahead, Houston. 

Just for your information only, the tracking 
data across the States .indicated that TPI 
could occur about 30 seconds earlier. All 
our other values remain unchanged. 

Roger. What was our time, Walt? l6 some- 
thing, wasn't it? 

16:1+5- That's pretty good because they give 
us - - 

... we show 16 plus U5 on that solution. 
Roger . 

It's been backing off 30 seconds. They said 

- it could be 30 seconds late. That's pretty 
good, that's a minute and a half. We're well 
within the ground rule, so that makes the DSKY 
sound pretty good to me. 

Yes, well, I didn't like that. Yes, I am, 
Walt. I'll just stay down here. It's easier. 
Hell, this timer down here is wiped out. It 
just jumped another 10 minutes .

Yes, I guess so; we'll have to. Well - I 
think it has gone to - AUTO OPTICS Is gone 
now, and I've got to do it manually, and it's 
not there. 

That's right. 

Okay, Walt, I guess we better pitch down and 
go to the bores ight attitude. And, well, 
we'll see what the hell we're going to get 
from the DSKY solution. I think we can go 
MANUAL if you want - probably be a little 
cheaper. And we could put it back to DAP 
when we get there. 

Right . 

Well, that was a surprise. 
It's the ... attitude. 

Okay, 52 degrees inertial is your pitch angle, ' 
Wally, and plus 9 degrees out of plane. Our 
vsctor should be less than out of plane at 
TPF of zero. 

Well. Walt, oh, you don't have that. How 
did that check with the ground? They gave you 
same solutions, didn't they? Did they give 
you local vertical coordinates? 

They didn't give us any local vertical? 

Okay, let me sec it . 

Here we are, we're absolute - right on, 15-0, 
7.9, and 1.9 out of plane. Wally, I suggest 
we take about half of that out of plane. Not, 
not all of it. Let's roll up about 5 down and 
then you take out about - about h degrees of 
yaw. How's that? Well, let it fly to its 
attitude, and then you can override it manu- 
ally, and bring it into about k degrees. It'll 
be about 8 degrees out of plane and if we pull 
it back into about It or 5, I think it'll Just 
about jibe with the ground.

Apollo 7, Houston through Tananarive. Stand- 
ing by. 

Roger. The residual was very low on that TPI. 

Okay. I read them all, and they were very 
small. 

Now, don't be scared, this is a phony mark. 
It's going to be a big number. At least, 
I hope it's a big number. 

Not all that big, is it? 

Houston, Apollo 7. We made the TPI with the 
onboard solution, that's the computer solu- 
tion, in DAP. 

Walt, we've got real bad .C0MM here at Tanan- 
arive. We can read that you are saying some- 
thing, but we can't make it out. 

The TPI burn was on the computer; onboard 
solution. 

We couldn't make it out. We made out the 
word "TPI" and that was all. 

Yes, I got it back, finally. Yes, I'll lay 
it there. I don't think we're going to - - 

Can you confirm that you've burned TPI? 

That's affirm. Affirmative. 

Roger, we got it. Thank you.

Okay, thank you. No, it's 5 minutes from the 
burn. I Just wanted to see how long - how far 
away we were. 

If you want to. 

Wally, this thing is Just barely visible in 
the telescope now. It is very bright in the 
sextant, however; flashing light. 

Well, 1*11 tell you. That's really screwed 
up. We were doing fine up to then. I mean, 
hell, you lose it, you just have to - I didn't 
realize it would just flat disappear like 
that . 

Man alive! 

This flashing light is absolutely spastic, on 
the booster. It's bright as hell sometimes, 
and then again, you can hardly see it, and 
it's erratic, it's irregular, you know. It 
isn't - it's either moving around or else 
those lights are screwed up, I don't know 
which. Yes, probably turning around. 

... a short pass at Carnarvon and - - 

Okay, you guys <?ive me a call for - we got 
about 8 minutes past or 52, whichever. Might 
as well. Okay, thank you. Okay, fine, I'll 
get it for you. Okay, I'll do one more mark, 
and then we'll go for the backup. 

Houston, Apollo 7- Do you read now? 

No, you didn't either, or else you're going to 
use them right here. Okay, VERB 85 coming up. 
Now, let's see. 10 seconds? Man, I didn't

Okay, you finished? Okay. 

Okay, I'm going to proceed at 22:30 and this 
will calculate a "burn which we'll execute at 
this amplitude if it is big enough to be 
worthwhile. I hope it isn't. I'm going now. 

We may be a little late. This thing is pokey 
compared to what our sim - the simulators 
show. If it's late, we'll just bum it late, 
Wally. I don't think it'll matter all that 
much. 

Okay - that's about - hit it one more time - 
3.6. 

Yes, let's see what it says, first. 

Okay. I don't particularly want to take off

01 05 36 25 CMP - - midcourse and we're calculating for a 

minute and a half. I do have Orion, Wally, 
and think if we go on up, he'll come right 
up in your window when you get up there. Now, 
this thing never did pull it back into sextant , 
and it got it in within a couple of degrees 
in the telescope. That's about as good as it 
did, so I don't know what the hell - and the 
problem with the backup solution is that all 
I can see is the damn flashing lights, and 
they are all over the place, and it's just 
hard to, you know, say what's the middle of 
the booster. Okay. 

01 05 36 56 CMP Oh, sob! Hey, we're in! Look at that: 0.071 

I can't believe it. Okay, alright, let me do 
the procedure. Call up hi Just for the hell

No, no, but - -

Okay. Yes, you want a theta? See if he's

you would. The hell" with it! What the GSsN is 
at this point doesn't matter - you're close 
enough to the line. It's just V going to

Yes. Either one. It matters not. Okay. 
It might be easier on SCS: you won't have to

a half a foot a second, right, Walt? 

Yes , okay. 



01 05 *»2 i*9 CMP - Well, we're fatter than a hog right here;

solution at this point is - is fine. It's 
23 feet per second, closing at a mile and 
six tenths out and that should bleed off to

know which one's right, but we're - we're 
beating the zone and here comes daylight,

01 05 55 LMP (Laughter) 

01 05 *+5 00 CMP How big is he? Can you get a measurement 

on the diameter? Oh. Now - you mean he's 
whirling around. Yes. Can you? If you 
could - if you can just get a gross hack, 
. like - is it a degree or a tenth or - okay. 
Okay, you better take off some. I'd take 
off so far - about 5 feet a second. Yes. 

01 05 1+5 1+8 CMP Just check it off. I got it on the - on the 

outfit here ... Well, okay. You don't have 
to take it all off then if he's not half a

stop on ... Okay. You didn't pull off the 



whole 5, did you? Okay. Alright. You 
mind if I reach over and jeer at that DELTA- V 
meter for you now and then? That'll help me, 
too. Okay. Fine. 

01 05 U6 U2 CMP What did he - if he's a degree, you hetter 

start pulling off. Okay. You better pull 
some off because he's coming in pretty quick. 
I'd pull off at least 5 more. 

01 05 1*6 56 CMP He's not a degree yet. Okay, even if he's 

a degree, he's 1200 feet. Now I'm talking 
the diameter, not the SLA panel. Good enough. 
Okay. Okay. Okay, you better pull some more 
off. Is he 1 degree yet? Okay, pull it off. 
I'd say pull off about 8. Yes. So make it 
13 on your dial. Yes. I wish I could see 
him (laughter). Okay. Okay, I think it's 
just about on you from here on in. Well, 
good thing. She hit another ... , huh?

I can. You're in good shape. You're still 
quite a ways out. Well, from here on it's 
just drifting in. What is it, about a degree

Roger. We're closing - we're about 700 feet,

Real fine, Wally. 

Looks like we used between 50 and 60 feet 
per second at this point, but we're just 
essentially holding station, moving in slow. 

90. 

Real fine. 

You - I don't - I - 

Hell, I don't know what I have frankly because 
these Goddamn numbers are jumping around on 
that DSKY like I've never seen it before. And 
I never do believe NOUN 1+0 because that son of 
a bitch sits there and integrates when there's 
nothing going on. So - I guess I'll have to

80 feet a second, 78 - or so. Something like

Roger, we're in station with it. About 150 
out. It's - and tumbling in almost any random 
direction. 

Roger. Understand. 

It looks like the fourth SLA panel finally 
deployed fully. 

We got some poor COMM this time, Walt. We'll 
stand by a little bit until we get in a little 
closer. 

Roger. Do you understand we are in station- 
keeping with the S-IVB? 

1 guess he doesn't (laughter). 
Roger, we copy stationkeeping. 
He did. Good. 

Wow! 

Apollo 7, Houston. How do you read now? 
Loud and clear, Jack. Go. 

Okay. You're real fine now, Walt. We have 
Just switched to S-band. 

... we had a DSKY solution of 3-6 to the 
midcourse. Walt had a 1.7 solution on his 
Charts, and we split the difference and did 

2 feet per second aft that slid us right in 
there, and except for a little bit of 
cross-point corrections that Wally had to 
make at the tail end, we were nominal, right 

up the pike. According to NOUN kO guesstimates 
of fuel used, we've used about 70 - 60 feet 
per second. However, NOUN kO integrates 
velocity when you are not thrusting, so I 
think we used somewhat less than that, prob- 
ably on the order of 60 to 65 feet per second.

Time, 1*1:3*+; I'd like to record the results 



the P23 sextant calibration test. On this test 
I used Canopus as the bright star and Rigel as 
the dim star. Unfortunately, there wasn't any 
third star within the field of view of Canopus, 
but I just went ahead and put Canopus at the 
center reticles for the only other star we 
could get to, and that's Rigel. I started the 
P23 as per checklist, and ... The only comment 




I have is that it's a rather tedious, time- 
consuming, and fuel-costly procedure, and the 
benefits we gain by it, I don ; t think, justify 
it. 

01 17 35 01 CMP The trunnion bias check: vhen it was first 

displayed, NOUN 87 - P23 came up with 00000. 

01 17 35 20 CMP The second NOUN 87 which is the shaft and 

trunnion one - I had the two stars super- 
imposed - was plus 29188, plus 176 1 * - cor- 
rection plus 17671*. The time was 1*1 hours 
2U minutes into the flight. 

01 17 37 1*5 CMP At Ul hours 37 minutes, I'd like to record a 

fecal elimination. It took place about 1*0:1*5- 
My experience is about the same as Cunningham's. 
It's not too bad, if you take your time. I did 
strip down, took underwear off to do it. It's 
a process of hooking - reconnecting the BI0MED 
afterwards. I could only get one of the little 
screw-in plugs to stay up.

01 17 39 1*1+ CC Roger. In reference to the water dump, we're 

reading 70 percent now; predicting a 90-percent 
level at approximately 1*5 hours, but no later 
than U6 hours. We'll have to dump at that 
time. It -: it's right in the middle of the 
sleep period. Suggest dumping it as soon as 
you can in order to prevent interrupting them 
in the middle of their sleep cycle. 

01 17 1*0 15 CMP Roger , I got you, Bill. They're already 

asleep, and the way we got it rigged, it 
.• • won't disturb either one of them.

So I'd Just as soon wait to 1+5 hours. 
Okay. 

Good thinking! 

Bill, could you give me those flight plan 
updates that Tom called awhile ago? I was 
right in the middle of a G&N exercise, and I 
didn't get to write it down. 

Okay, I'll start talking. I have about a 
minute and 15 seconds. 

Okay. At 1+1+ hours, we'll give you the MCC 
update previously scheduled for 1*1+ plus 1+0. 

Roger. 

Okay. At 1+1+ plus 36, perform "S-IVB tracking," 
which was previously scheduled at 1+6 plus 10. 
At that time - this new time - the S-IVB will 
be 169 nautical miles. The last item, at 
1+5 plus 30, delete "P52 IMU realign." 

Roger, understand, delete the P52 IMU realign. 
You want us to dp a fine align at that time?

Apollo 7» Houston through Tananarive. 
Roger . 

Houston, Apollo 7. 
Go ahead, 7. 

Roger. We've got a lockup in the C0MP cycle 
of program 21. Would you get a G&N guy to 
give us a handy-dandy on what to do to correct 
that? There's a little procedure for me to 
get out of it. 

Okay. I understand that you're locked up in 
program 21? 

Roger, it's in the C0MP cycle. I loaded in 
present time and then hit the PROCEED "button 
and the C0MP light's been on ever since. 

Okay. Stand "by, 7- We are getting somebody 
to help us down here. 

Okay. 

Apollo 7, Houston. 
Roger. Go. 

Donn, can you tell us what display you had 

in the program when you hit the PROCEED button? 

Roger, 1 had the time in, the NOUN 3h display. 
I loaded in present time, hit the PROCEED 
button, and it went into its normal COMP cycle. 
It usually takes about a minute to calculate 
your position, and it's been there ever since 
for several minutes now. 

Could you say again? We missed the display.

Apollo 7, Houston through Hawaii. 

Roger, Jack. Hey listen, on this G&N test, 
we don't want to build up a rate, then take 
it out. That wastes too much fuel, and we 
are a little shy anyway. What I was asking 
you is what rate setting you want on the DAP 
load, but I'll Juf?t use 0.2, and I suggest we 
just put it in wide DEADBAND, ATTITUDE HOLD, 
and let it sit there awhile. 

Apollo 7, Houston. 

Houston, Apollo 7. Go. 

Apollo 7, Houston with an update. 

Roger, Jack. What is the update? 

Go with your update. 

Apollo 7, do you read Houston? 

Roger. 

Okay, Donn, we have an update on DAP rate 
DEADBAND we'd like you to set in. We would 
like you to set in 0.2 degree per second for 
the rate DEADBAND for the G&N attitude control 
test. 

Okay, I've already got that in. Jack, I'm not 
going to do the - - 

10 clicks of water for the LMP at 5 - at

Go ahead. 

Wally, could you confirm your reservations 
about the SPS engine? Does that have to do 
with the GPI movement that you observed? 

Negative. We had a basic rule beforehand 
with the flight director that we would not go 
into the SM RCS reserve until we knew that we 
had a good SPS engine. 

Okay. We copy. 

Roger. I would like one more burn - - 
Okay.

Antares and Peacock. And on those torching

a minus, and the third was a plus.

Yes . 

Go ahead. 

Go ahead, Jack. 

CDR here. 

Apollo 7 » Houston. 
CDR speaking. 

Roger. About the SPS problem: after dis- 
cussion down here i "our feeling is that the 
SPS is GO. However, we have a DAP service 
module RCS deorbit capability at the present 
time. And we are within 10 feet per second 
of an SCS service module RCS deorbit 
capability. 

Roger. That was our figuring here, and we'd 
like to hold that in reserve as much as pos- 
sible. 

After the third . . . burn when we get to a 
lower perigee here, I think we'll feel much 
more comfortable. 

Wally, we're not able to read you at this 
time. We'll pick you up with that last trans- 
mission over Carnarvon. 

Roger. 

Houston, Apollo 

Walt's doing his second fine alignment. He 
did pretty well once he figured out that there 
weren't any numbers pasted on the star ball.

CMP 


These stars are just sort of visible at the - 
if you look off to one side, you can see them 
a little bit. Dark adapting wouldn't do any 
good for this particular test, because there's 
so much daylight in the instruments and the 
telescope. The game light pattern I 
described before - an angular pattern around 



the edge of the thing and a broad belt across 
the center plus a big blob down at the bottom - 
it's not quite as bright as it was during the 
other test ... 3 but it is there, and it's 
going to prevent me from being dark adapted.

I picked up about 25 stars at sunset minus 
8 minutes. The light - no identifiable con- 
stellations at this tim~, I don't know what 
part of the sky I'm looking at. I can take a 
look at somewhere at the southern hemisphere, 
but - in the vicinity of Acamar or Achernar, 
whichever it is, there's this Dig void spot 
down there; it's hard to find stars in. 

One of the things that obscured this star data 
is the fact whenever the jet fires or the 
overboard vent vents, you get a lot of parti- 
cles that reflect light, and you can't see 
anything except that. All I see is a big 
field of bright spots out there. 

This at sunset minus 1+ minutes and still 
obliterated by the field of particles, not 
possible to see the stars for the little bits 
and pieces coming out of the vent. 

Okay, this is sunset. We still have the same 
problem, these particles are flying around 
and there's no way that I can - particles are 
still flying around at sunset, and there's no 
way I can distinguish stars from particles. 
I think the reason we didn't see these at the 
test at sunrise was that the spacecraft has 
been running cool through the dark side of 
the earth and probably wasn't boiling any 
water at that time. That terminates the star 
count .

02 06 50 01 CC Roger, Donn is the big eater. 

02 06 50 Oh LMP that's affirm (laughter). 

02 06 50 09 LMP We've been on the Exer-Genie as much as 30 m±n~ 

utes at a time, and we'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 perky. Tnere's no discomfort 
up here. My cold has improved considerably. 

02 06 50 33 CC Roger, that's good. 

02 06 50 1+8 LMP While on the subject, what we are concerned 

about is the chlorination of the drinking 
water. We're drinking about as much as we 
can. I don't think that we've consumed 
enough water to lower the quantity sufficiently 
to keep adding chlorine to it! 

02 06 51 10 CC Say again, Walt. 

02 06 51 11 LMP Roger, we're due to add more chlorine to our 

potable water. We have not consumed enough 
of it to warrant adding a lot of chlorine to 
it. 

02 06 51 36 LMP We can't say subjectively - we do not object 

to the taste at this point. 

02 06 51 1*3 CC Apollo 7, Houston. Say again about the 

chlorine and potable water. 

02 06 51 1+8 LMP Roger, we query the advisability of adding 

chlorine on schedule to the potable water. 
At this point, there is not an objectionable 
taste to the water.

What's the next one? 
Little closer, Wally. 

It says, "Keep Those Cards Coming" - "Keep 
Those Cards and Letters Coming, Folks." It's 
loud and clear. 

Yes, sir, a funny show for the whole family . t

Okay. 

Okay, it looks like we lost TV, and we've 
done some spade work down here. Looks like 
we've found out what's wrong with the MARK 
button. 

Very good. 

Yes, it looks like there's an improper exit 
to a program yesterday. If the IMU is 
aligned, we'll select program 20, if you got 
a piece of paper to copy it down? 

Okay, would you have somebody get our fuel 
right now, so we can get an idea of how much 
that cost us? 

Okay, ready to copy. 

Okay, go ahead and select program 20. We'll 
then do VERB 57, ENTER. After that, you will 
key ENTER. Then you will select program - 
Now what that does is cause a reset of flag 
word 2, bit ih, which is set, which has pre- 
vented that mark from getting in. 

You broke off after key ENTER, Tom, program 20 
VERB 57, ENTER, then key in ENTER, then pro- 
gram something. 

Select POO, P zero zero. 

Hello, Apollo 7» Houston. 

Go ahead, Ten. 

Roger, did you get that procedure okay? 

Roger, we copied with program 20, VERB 57, 
ENTER, key another ENTER, go back to POO, 
and ENTER . . . 

.Roger, and that should reset that flag word, 
and you should be all set to use program 51 
and 52 as normal.

03 00 18 35 CDR From the period of TO hours through approxi- 

mately 72 hours, the timeline was rather awk- 
ward in that we had a problem with the MASK 
button on the computer. The whole team on 
board was a little behind the curve. ' They 
were sleeping well, finally, and I wanted for 
them to sleep awhile. We needed three men 
really to hook up the events in that - in a 
really effective time. The state vectors we 
were working normally would have been a very 
simple task for one man to run. 

03 00 19 15 CC 7, Houston through Tananarive. 

03 00 26 01 CDR Debriefing on the period from 70 hours to 

72 hours: as a result of the delayed pickup 
of the total crew, the events snowballed, and 
we fell behind on the alignment. We did man- 
age to get the canister change number 6 com- 
pleted on time. About this time, we were 
getting some help on the problem that we're 
supposed to - -

We'll pick up ARIA 2 at about 2 minutes, and 
then on through to Carnarvon.

03 00 26 l»5 CDR And as a result of this , the rendezvous 

transponder test was pretty well blown apart. 
We did manage to get the TV camera out, in 
that that would seem to be the big crisis 
ever since launch day. 

03 00 27 18 CDR We did attempt, and wasted some fuel, on the 

alignment. Finally, I noted the beginning of 
the constellation Orion in the number 2 window. 
And I had Donn pick that up in the LEB. In

button wouldn't work. The PMP called - cor- 
rection, the command module pilot made the 
mark at the shaft and trunnion angle - CMP 
timed the shaft and trunnion angles while the 
spacecraft was in tight DEAD BAWD, SPS limit 
cycle ON. The angles were read off by the 
CDR, and recorded by the LMP. The CMP then 
proceeded to the next position to record the 
shaft and trunnion angle, and the LMP called 
them out, and the CMP inserted them. 

In this procedure, two stars were used for 
the first track in program 53. They were 
Rigel and Aldebaran, and the star angle dif- 
ference was 00039- In program 5h y the same 
two stars were used and relative ... holding, 
and the star angle difference was 00018. The 
gyro-torquing angle after this program 5*+ was 
0002 on all four axes, less than 0.025 - less 
than 0.03. 

This task worked out to be satisfactory so that 
we could have used it for any type of burn if 
necessary. 

The - it was completed. We picked up Hawaii 
acquisition, and the call was made to get ready 
for the rendezvous radar transponder test. 

And this was rushing us much too fast. We 
didn't have but 2h minutes' lead time roughly 
to heat the transponder up to operating temper- 
ature. 

We used about 1 degree per second in pitch, 
using ACCEL COMMAND to attempt to get into 
the desired attitude for the transponder test. 

This at least did help us , if the transponder 
test had failed to get into an ideal attitude 
for a Gulf Coast pass for the television. 

The television camera results I assure - I'm 
sure, spoke for themselves. 

It is necessary to observe, however, that this 
is compounding a rather difficult test. 



C(tWlttiMj|^^ Day 



03 00 33 k8 CDR In retrospect, my decision not to use the 

television camera prior to the first SPS "burn 
was sound. We had too much to do to get the 
television camera ready. There was too much 
attention paid to the results of the tele- 
vision camera rather than anything else, as 
was typical in this pass. 

03 00 3h 09 CDR I "believe that television should be left as 

the last low-priority test objective in rela- 
tion to any other event that may occur simul- 
taneously. 

03 00 3h 28 CDR Typically, with a television camera on board, 

the crew reacted to it, and we fortunately 
had no problems occur, but we were paying 
much too much attention to the TV camera 
and not to the spacecraft. This is why I 
object to the TV camera in the first place. 

03 0Q 3^ ^7 CDR A candid-camera syndrome is a very awkward one 

to have in' a spacecraft. 

03 00 35 11 CDR And this is the end of a 

03 00 35 13 CT ARIA 2; AOS in about 5 DB. 

03 00 35 ll* CMP This is the command module pilot. Time is 

72 hours 50 minutes. I'd like to register a 
comment or two concerning the optics. 

03 00 35 21 CMP In general, the optics drive is very smooth 

and much better than we've seen on any of the 
simulators. The visibility, however, in the 
telescope is no better, in fact, a little 
worse than what we experienced in the CMS at 
the Cape. It was most disappointing to find 
that you really do have to bury your eye in 
that thing for a good 5 to 10 minutes - - 



03 00 1*9 CMP - - vithout a well-defined pattern, it's pretty- 

bard to find anything by itself. 

03 00 50 11 CMP This is the command module pilot at 72 hours 

and 50 minutes into the flight of Apollo 7- 
I'd like to register a comment or two concern- 
ing the G&N optics. First, the optics seems 
to drive very smoothly, and it's very easy to 
control in both EES0LVSD and DIRECT at all 
speeds for landmark- tracking purposes or star 
marking or whatever. It's much smoother than 
we've seen on any simulator. The part that's 
disappointing, however, is the extremely poor 
visibility in the telescope. It's no better, 
in fact, a little worse than what we saw in 
the CMS, and you really have to bury your eyes 
in the thing for about 5 to 10 minutes to get 
dark adapted before you can recognize anything. 
In general, if you have bright stars in a well- 
defined, well-known pattern you can find them. 
We have had a fair amount of luck with the 
pick-a-pair routine. It appears that as long 
as we're looking at all sky and not much earth 
in the field of view, the thing will work pretty 
well, so that's a help for doing P52. The tough 
part, of course, is doing 51' s when you're com- 
ing up from scratch. 

03 00 51 38 CMP The field of view in the telescope ends at 

about 38 degrees trunnion. The field of view 
in the sextant, however, goes out beyond 
50 degrees, which is a very curious thing, and 
we had not expected that. So, effectively, the 
field, the 20 - the 38-degree alarm that often 
comes up in the various programs is a real con- 
straint as far as the use of the telescope. 

03 00 53 26 CDR This is CDR, we tried to 

03 00 53 U3 CDR From the glycol evaporator, we tried to salvage 

the water flow, and it did not take. Procedur- 
ally, we went from STEAM PRESSURE, AUTO to 
MANUAL; worked in the INCREASE position for 
1*5 seconds; waited over 5 minutes for steam 
pressure to increase - no sign of increase - 
flowed water with the HgO FLOW switch ON for 

2 minutes - no sign of increase in steam 



pressure - terminated attempt at that point to 
bring vater boiler on the line. 

03 03 06 13 IMP Houston, I've been able to get this up to a 

normal range, so I suspect that with .a little 
manipulation of the water flow, I can get that 
boiler operating again. That's the way I did it 
once before.

03 06 1+9 26 LMP 78 hours and 10 minutes into the flight, ve 

noticed a puddle of water that was formed 
"between the suit stowage "bag and the aft 
bulkhead. There was probably approximately 
1 pint of fluid, which we identified as water. 
And by tracking around the spacecraft, we 
located the source as coolant line in - at 
the - below the commander's left shoulder in 
the curved panel at the corner, which has the 
perforated holes in it . We removed the panel 
with tool E and located the condensation on 
the line behind the panel. Apparently, this 
water settled to the aft bulkhead, probably 
during the last SPS burn, and it would probably 
be advisable for us to check that periodically 
and make sure we're not collecting any more 
condensed water.

We ran it just about a half hour ago when we 
used it to dump something, and it reads l.k 
until you open the vent, and when you open 
the vent, it reads about 0.5.

You read? 

You read that, Ron? 

Apollo 7, Houston. Roger, I read: l.k, and 
0.5 when you open the vent. 

Roger, and we checked our lithium hydroxide

functioning in AUTO 1 and AUTO 2, remaining 
in AUTO 2.

OU 02 kg 09 LMP Hey, Jack, how are we doing in our other con- 

sumables? I noticed in the flight plan that 
60 percent hydrogen test was nominally at 102 
to 103 hours. Are we running pretty much 
nominal there or a little behind or what?

thing about using this antibiotic as a

not any need to use any of the antibiotics.

a cold.

much getting these things, but Donn's coming 
dawn I think a little bit better here, and if 
there is some way I can hold it off, I would 
just as soon take the pills . Or do they just 
want me to go ahead and catch it and then 
treat it?

This is CDR. Some of our equipment is 



starting to show signs of age. The Exer-Genie, 
although used somewhat extensively, is starting 
to fray and not run smoothly. The bootees on 
my Teflon suit are starting to unravel and come 
apart. The microphone on my right-hand headset 
is cracked, and, except for being taped together, 
would not function. 

0U 05 kk 33 CDR The ear tube on Walt Cunningham's right-hand 

headset is coming apart. The COMM carrier 
connectors to the suits are all getting frayed 
at the fitting where they make up to the suit. 
I think it is because ve take these off and on 
with a great amount of frequency. , 

0l+ 05 U5 0k CDR We've had a problem with the wristwatch straps. 

They are much too long for a normal shirtsleeve 
attire and are just about right for the pressure 



suit. They should be made as small as possible 
for the pressure suit, and then they might have 
a chance of fitting the wrist with two turns 
around it. 

Oh 05 ^5 25 CDR Now, one technique was used on Eisele's watch, 

to pass the watch through a Velcro band. And 
some technique similar to this might work for 
both suited and unsuited work. 

0U 05 k6 Ok CDR We've had a .continuous problem with the 70mm 

back in that the slider plate for removal of 
the back will not prevent actuation of the 
shutter. This Is not designed that way in 
the stock Hasselblad; it has been modified 
nicely to cause this effect in our crew camera. 

Ok 05 U6 38 CDR The last-minute changes in film seem to be par 

for the course in this business. And it's a 
big mistake to have four different ASA films 
onboard, particularly when we pass the camera 
back and forth rapidly in a drifting mode when 
a good target's available. We shot our S0117 
the first day or so at ASA 6k, And this was 
so we would not waste the 368 as well, which 
is also ASA 6k. Now we have S0121, nominally 
for shooting at ASA 60, and soon we will be 
shooting Panatomic-X at ASA 1+5. This is not 
the way to run a railroad. There are many - 
there are many films available with a common 
ASA available. For high-speed work, naturally 
we prefer the ASA 1000. 

0k 05 kQ 06 CDR At this point in the flight, over 100 hours, 

it's almost impossible to believe we started 
this flight out with the pressure suit on. 
The environment just doesn't even seem to be 
acceptable to the big lumpy. And I suspect 
that we are going to put them on with great 
misgivings after the time required. If our 
head conditions are not cleared up in time, I 
believe we probably will reject using those 
suits. This is not a decision at this point, 
but merely an opinion.

0U 22 11 35 CC Roger. I - Wally, we've been doing some 

looking into this torque business. There 
have been some calculations made that show 
that there is 0.5- foot-pound torque possible 
going through perigee when you are broadside - 
going through perigee broadside to the direction 
of flight. This produces a possible rate of 
0.03 degree 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 if it's 
more pronounced or noticeable at perigee only? 

Ok 22 12 23 CDR We've already discovered it's more pronounced 

toward perigee. We were looking at it last 
night going across the - the States, and 
then across the Atlantic, and it was very 
strong in there. Had a tendency to put a 
pitchup; it didn't matter what the roll was. 
As it came across perigee, then it would start 
torquing right back, and we tended to go into 
SCS most of the time.

Apollo 7, could you say again? The COMM 
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, we have about 1 minute LOS Tananarive 
and we would like to try an S-band contact 
through ARIA 2 at approximately 121 plus 30. 

Wilco. We'll be up. 

Go ahead, Houston. 

Very good. Best ARIA we've had yet. 

Yes, I'm very impressed with it. 

I like it better than the work we've had with 
Tananarive . 

How long .can we work this bird, Jack? 
Roger, do we overlap with ARIA? 
Roger, we'll stand by. 

Just to fill you in, Jack, I'm doing a slov - 
a very slow roll, near - near SEF. 

It's about pitched to about 26 degrees. And 
we're not getting the torquing effect we had 
before. We're getting some more water out of 
the suit loop hoses, and it may be a function 
of the burn to bring the water up, but ob- 
viously we're getting it.

05 02 1+1 10 CMP ... catch it, it got away from me. I finally 

picked it up just as it went outside the field 
of view, but it was too late to get any marks. 
On the third one, I loaded in the data out of 
the landmarks book here. And when I went 
to AUTO OPTICS, it indicated that the target 
was completely outside of the field of view 
through the . . . And Wally and Walt actually 
3aw the thins a little bit to the south of us, 
but should have been within the field of view. 
So, what it amounts to, I got faked out three 
times by the stupid AUTO OPTICS in here.

-05 03 12 30- LMP Hey, Jack. This is Walt. I got a comment 

on this food you might pass on to Frank and 
his guys. This high-caloried stuff, where 
they got everything hiked with calories , is 
Just getting to us something fierce. In 
order to get a lot of calories in small 
weight, everything is hiked up and it's all 
got a sweet taste, and something you think 
tasted real good to you, "by the time you get 
to the end of the hag of it, you can't really 
look at it - look it in the eye very well. 

05 03 12 59 CC Roger, I understand that. 

05 03 13 01 CDR The criteria for this was oo save stowed 

weight, and as a result the food is very 
caloric and it's all sweet stuff. 

05 03 13 16 CC Roger. 

05 03 13 18 LMP You also might pass on to their crew, Jack, 

in case they haven't selected theii menu yet, 
that I had a tendency to pick out a menu 
which had the individual items that I liked 
a lot out of the samples. If I had to do it 
over again, I would try to make sure I had 
as wide a variety of acceptable foods.

you have 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 be visible in the landmark line 
of sight, and the star visible in the star

was coming loose. He put it together the 
last time and taped it to keep it there, and 
apparently it's now in a state of failure down 
where it goes into the hody connector at the 
signal conditioner and he wants to know can 
they receive data with only his three good 
sensors? Over. 

Roger. What's your - what's the color of the 
signal conditioner that there's a plug that 
it's going into? . 

It's the lower sternal lead. 

Roger. Stand by. 

It's the blue signal conditioner. 

Roger. Go ahead, Ron. Houston, Apollo 7- 
Go. 

Roger, real weak, Walt. We can work up a 
swap of the signal conditioners or the leads 
going to the signal conditioners and we'll 
try to pass that up to you over Tananarive. 

Okay, thank you. 

Sorry about that.

Apollo 7, . . . 

Roger, read the same, thank you. 

Apollo 7, Houston. Did you call? 

Negative, Ron. I'm just standing "by. 

Roger, ahout 1 minute to LOS now and Tananarive 
at 01. 

Roger. 

Did you catch our TV pass today? 

Affirmative, it was a good one again. The 
quality wasn't quite as good as it was the 
other 2 days. I've got some dope on that 
ALC switch I'll try to pass to you at some 
time this evening. 

Okay. It never seems to work as good with 
the ALC in.

No, and it's not our intention to chlorinate 
today. We chlorinated yesterday. You 
haven't had any objections about chlorinating 
every other day, have you? 

Roger, I understand your intent on the thing. 
Do you still have a bad taste in it? Is 
this the reason? 

We Just now are starting to feel well enough 
about colds and the water is tasting palatable 
enough, so we feel like - like cutting down 
the cold by drinking as much fluid as we can. 
But if we chlorinate, the taste of it after- 
ward would be very bad for several hours , and 
it's not really good until the next day. 

Okay. We understand and do not chlorinate to- 
day, we'll pass up today and chlorinate tomor- 
row. 

Okay, very good. I think that's a pretty 
sensible schedule. We'll expect to chlorinate 
tomorrow . 

Got two questions for you, Ron, if you're ready 
to copy. 

Say again. 

One, what is the precise inclination of our 
orbit? Second is, we'd like to get a chart 
update for our RCS chart onboard. 

Roger. What's the precise inclination of 
your orbit? Is that what you said? 

Right, and Wally would like to hear the 
proposed fix on the BI0MED sensors because 
he is getting suited up again. 

Roger. We'll get your information on the BI0MED 
sensors. Walt, your inclination is 31.25. 

Roger.

And on your BIOMED sensors - what we want to 
use - or use the two good ones in the middle 
of your chest, and those two good ones will 
have to be connected to the blue signal 
conditioner, which means you're going to have 
the wires that go into the signal conditioners. 

Okay, you want the two single leads that go to 
the blue signal conditioner, right? 

Yes, that's affirmative. 

Okay, that means that Wally would like to 
unhook the connector on the other signal 
conditioner and use those leads for the 
sternal lead? 

That's affirmative, that's affirmative. 

Okay, we'll try. If that doesn't work, we 
will just have to write it off because he's 
been trying to keep that thing together for 
around 126 hours. He'll try it. 

Roger. 

Apollo 7, Houston. 1 minute LOS; Mercury

05 07 37 *+0 CC Roger. 

05 07 37 h& CMP Ron, I have a comment to pass on to Frank . . . 

at least as soon as you can. The hose that 
you vent the waste water in, it goes to a 
QD fitting that's covering the water control 
panel. But where it passes through the 
water control panel, it has leaked everytime 
we dumped the waste water, and a large bubble 
of water has formed there. We could possibly 
put on there a pressed-on fitting, there was 
no lowering in it and that could make a big 
difference. 

05 07 38 27 CC Apollo 7, Houston. I can't make too much 

out of that other than understanding there 
was a large puddle of water by the water 
fitting on the waste water disconnect. 

05 07 38 38 CMP Roger. That's affirmative. And you might 

look into putting a different type fitting 
for attaching to the water control panel to 
save the problem of water leaking there every 
time we dump. 

05 07 38 5 1 * CC We'll play back our tapes. Maybe we can read 

it off the tapes. I couldn't read you that 
time.

Houston, Apollo 7- 

Regarding the sunrise, the color: the earth 
itself is black, but the face of the airglow 
is a bright reddish orange, fading to a light 
orange - very light - almost to a white, then 
a purplish violet color, fading into a dark 
blue as it gets darker, and it's quite a dark

that we do flare before you run into black

05 10 51 38 CDR It is, isn't it? It's pretty wide out there, 

isn't it? 

Yes. -

05 12 Ul U8 CMP Ron, I got a couple of comments relative to 
program 23 navigation. 

05 12. Ul 56 CC Roger, go. 

05 12 Ul 57 CMP Okay, the reason we knocked that off yester- 

day was that when we got into attitude at 
the rate for P23, there was no star in the 
sertant, and the horizon we had in the sex- 
tant for a fixed line of sight was very 
indistinct. In fact, it was pretty hard to 
pick out anything you could use. There was 
one line-of-sight pass though, a repeatable 
line - it was pretty ticklish. Subsequent 
to that, I did a P52 AUTO OPTICS check, and 
found that the star was up there, but it 
was at a slightly different shaft and trunnion 
angle. That was the reason we didn't pick 
it up. 

05 12 U2 3U CC Roger. 

05 12 U2 36 CMP So the gist of it all is that I don't think 

. " it was too worthwhile or realistic a way to 

perform that program. It wasn't designed 




Day 6 221 



to be used that way, but I'd suggest that 
if we have any time or fuel later in the 
flight , we try to use a lunar landmark and 
stars-

This is P52, option 2. Gyro-torquing angles,

is a torque align to a nominal REFSMMAT - 
that's the fine align, Jack. That time is

Right. This is torque align, and these are 
the angles needed to torque it in for a fine 
align.

That was at 11+5:26:30. 

Been rolling, been rolling, single CHANNEL 
ROLL. We counted the pulses. We developed a 
2-degree-per-second roll rate, 0.2-degree-per- 
secori roll rate, rolling to the left (laughter) 
It took seven pulses. It put on a two-tenths 
of a second, - degree-per-second - roll rate. 
Seven pulses put out nicely to zero, and in 
rolling back, it would take eight pulses for 
0.2 degree per second.

The last of the news that I didn't finish this 



morning, the National Institute of Health 
announced today that they had a development 
of a vaccine to prevent German measles. Tommy 
Smith won a gold medal in the 200-meter dash 
with a world record time of 19.8, Bob -Seagren 
picked up the United States' sixth gold medal 
"by winning the pole vault with a world record 
of 17 feet, 8-1/2 inches. George Foreman of 



Houston won a split decision in the open round 
of the Olympic boxing.

there .

haven't seen anything like that, ever.

the coast of Florida around Tallahassee. 

06 01 35 13 CDR What are the highest winds on the outside?

really is pronounced.

about ... 50 to 60 so we either had a wrong 
state vector or somehow ... Anyhow, we managed 
to get two marks , and we got . . . updates . . . 
all we got were zeros. We got a huge difference 
on the landmark coordinates. The landmark 
coordinates now for landmark lh2 on the DSKT 
are minus 02731, minus 20993, minus 00012. 
That's NOUN 89 in program 32.

our food up here. If you like, I will repeat 
them. 

06 02 52 19 CMP I was saying that Wally and I are trying to give 

away our butterscotch pudding, but nobody wants 
it. Walt likes to collect cocoa, so we can give 
our cocoa to him. And both of them are trying to 
con me out of ham and applesauce. Walt has 
offered me a whole meal for one dish. 

■06 02 52 37 LMP I guess what we're trying to say is that we get 

a little tired of the very rich, sweet things, 
and we still go for the meats and the soups and 
the solids. 

06 02 52 U6 CC Okay, copy that. 

06 02 52 50 LMP Hey, Jack, when I tried to call you before over 

the last station, I had a corn chowder bag 
failure. It's the second one of this type. It 
fails down where the spout comes out. It fails 
down right down where it goes into the bag it- 
self, and the meal comes out some other hole.

apart down - it was not an external leak. It 
was internal, it was where the drinking spout :

chocolate pudding bag failure. That's the thii 
food bag failure that the LMP has sustained. .

Hey, Ron, how are the surgeons doing on curing 
colds from long range tonight? 

Well, they're still working on it. Some guy 
down here is also working, facetiously that 
is, to determine if you would have gotten a 
cold had you not flown. 

Had we not what? 

You not taken the flight. 

Roger. 

That's very significant. 

I don't know how he is going to do it, hut 
he's working on it. 

It could prove to be invaluable data. 

I wonder what would have happened if our

Roger. 

Hey, Ron, tell the doctors not to worry about 
the cold. I always understood that it takes 
a week to get rid of it if you treat it, 
7 days if you don't. Tomorrow is our 8th day, 
80 it will probably be gone. 

Roger. 

The doctor really confirms that. 

Apollo 7, Houston. Verify UP TELEMETRY 
command to NORMAL. 

All day. 

Roger. By the way, the guy I was talking 
about before on the cold, I just heard that 
over the news. It's not one of our guys. 

That's encouraging anyway. 

Roger . 

Thank God I'm not paying that cat.

7, - - 

Bill, I'd like to have you go over again, 
what you had proposed for the DELTA-V counter 
setting on this turn. 

Okay, tho DELTA-V counter setting will he 

1728.0. What this does, it's 100 - 100 feet 

higher than the DELTA-V that you want to get, 

and you will turn the thrust switches OFF at 

100.0 indication on the DELTA-V counter. In 
c 

other words, with the hundred feet remaining. 

What's 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. 

1*11 turn it OFF if it doesn't turn itself 
OFF at zero. ... I'll complete the ... 

... Can you read me, Jack? 

... average lUO, the condenser exhaust 
temperature 178, it looks like now. 

Okay. It seems to start coming down after I 
put two on the line, hut I can't figure out as 
regards the condenser exhaust temperature. 

The time is l6U hours and 1+5 minutes. We are 
now in DAP control, NAV DEADBAKD, 0.02-degree- 
per-second rate, and we are letting the DAP 
turn the spacecraft to the burn attitude. And 
then we are holding there. 

Apollo 7, Houston through Huntsville. 

Roger, loud and clear. 

The changeover from the G&N control on the 
number 5 burn through the MTVC was very smooth. 
The error needles did not displace more than 



about 1 or 2 degrees, and the system responded 
very well coming back into null. And the roll 
went off about 2 degrees at the beginning of 
the burn on the G&N phase and came bacK in 
before I took over. I took over when all error 
needles were practically null, and the dis- 
placement was very minute, meaning that the 
ground update on the Q-ball was very good. 

06 21 13 53 CDR The burn proceeded normally until cutoff. 

One, the DELTA-V counter was hit by direct 
sunrays and was almost impossible to read. 
Two, a change in procedure that had not been 
planned for was implemented Just before the 
burn. An extra 50 feet per second was added 
to the DELTA-V counter to permit a DELTA-V 
thrust cutoff rather than a DELTA-V counter 
cutoff. And this, coupled with the sunrays 
on the DELTA-V counter, caused us to overburn 
50 feet per second. 

06 21 l6 01 CC ... prior to h8 hours elapsed, and apparently 

they're- not particularly worried about that. 

06 21 16 19 IMP Thank you. I'm glad they are not.

06 21 18 20 CC Roger, copy that. 

06 21 2^ 10 CDR - The time, 165 hours 2k minutes; I don't re- 

member if I recorded this or not, so I will 
do it again. The field of view in the sextant 
goes out to about 57 degrees; the field of 
view in the telescope is limited to about 38 
or 39 degrees. 

06 21 30 51 CMP Time, 165 hours 30 minutes; I Just mapped the 

field of view in the telescope and the sextant 
against the bright earth background. I find 
the telescope - both of them are symmetrical, 
that is, they are the same trunnion angle out 
to the edge of the field of vision all the way 
around. Telescope is about h2 degrees from 
the trunnion and the sextant is- .about 56 de- 
grees. I noticed when we are looking at stars, 
that the field of view in the telescope seems 
to be more like 38 or 39- I think probably 
this is because there may be some greater light 
loss out at. the edges that obscures stars, but 
does not obscure bright earth objects.

Roger, loud and clear. I recorded on the on- 
board tape Lake Chad. That was Lake Victoria, 
frame 11, magazine R as in Romeo. 

06" 21 3"3 Ok CC Roger. Wally, there is just one thing on the 

T align for the passive thermal control test. 
If you study the T align we've given you 
prior to l66 plus 50 j you'll have to do it 
over again.

Yes, that's two for today. We've already got 
it in. 




Day T 255 



06 21 35 05 CMP Jack, why do I have to do it ovar, offhand? 

Is it that far in error, or are you just 
saying you want to fine tune it? 

06 21 35 12 CC Well, what it does, you'll he over one REV 

ahead on the integration there. 

06 21 35 20 CDR Houston, Apollo T. Over. 

06 21 35 23 CMP Yes , that 's it. 

06 21 35 25 IMP Hey, Jack, are you still there? 

06 21 35 26 CC Roger, Walt. 

06 21 35 28 IMP Are you familiar with our fuel cell problem, 

fuel cell 2? I've got fuel cell 2 back on the 
line. Do they want me to leave it on until 
the condenser exhaust temperature hits 200 and 
starts cycling it hack and forth between 200 
on condenser exhaust and 380 on the skin TEMP, 
or Just save it for when I need it? I would 
just as soon leave it on the line if nobody 
else has strong druthers. 

06 21 35 57 CC Okay, Walt, we would like to leave fuel cell 

, on the line to see if T^ goes on up toward 

200 again. 

06 21 36 03 IMP I understand that ; it is going on up towards 

200 again, and if it is okay with you, I 
will just leave it at 200 and cycle it back 
and forth as per the malfunction procedures. 

06 21 36 21 CC Affirmative, Walt. 

06 21 36 25 CMP ' Forget the Tananarive coordinates. 

06 21 36 33 IMP Houston, are you still there? Are you still 

there, Jack? 

06 21 36 37 CC Apollo 7, Houston. Go ahead. 

06 21 36 39 IMP Roger, we had another large puddle of water 

on the aft bulkhead after that last burn. It 



L Day 7

looks like it is probably a good pint. We 
marked the perimeter of the puddle on the aft 
bulkhead, and somebody can calculate how much 
water was in there. 



06 21 36 58 LMP You might make a note. They're going to have 

to make some allowances for kind of a reverse 
meniscus effect because this water kind of 
bunches up off the floor. 

06 21 37 16 CDR We also had water coming out of the water gun 

during the burn on my lap. 

06 21 37 21 CC Okay, copy that. 

06 21 37 2k CDR It was dribbling out in big drops. Have you 

been briefed on the problem we had, the new 
kind of number 5 burn with 50 feet per second 
added? 

06 21 37 1*2 CC Okay, Wally, the COMM here at Tananarive isn't 

too good. We'll pick you up over Carnarvon, 
and let's get a good rundown on it then at 
165 plus U7. 

06 21 37 55 CDR Wilco. 

06 21 38 18 CDR We're getting a free ride. 

06 21 38 33 IMP On the onboard tape, we are getting a free 

ride again due to perigee torque. 

06 21 39 02 CDR At 165 hours 39 minutes, the water gun is 

putting out more gas then it is water at 
this moment. The local vertical attitude as 
to the perigee torque is 2*10 degrees pitch. 

06 21 39 19 CC Roger, I copy that, Wally. 

06 21 39 22 CC We're just about to lose you over Tananarive. 

We'll pick you up at Carnarvon. 

06 21 39 25 CDR Okay, you're copying our perigee torque, here? 

I'm getting a 3 - about 0.35-degree-per- second 
pitch rate. Our pitch is about 250 degrees 
local vertical - now it's about 270.

Houston, Apollo 7- 

Will you please check and see if the Maurer

Okay, the subject is the movie camera. 

Okay, I'll wait. 

The time is l66 hours and 6 minutes. I've 
Just done the P52 to align for the passive 
thermal control test, and I've got some 
torqulng angles here which reflect the error 
inherent in the coarse align. The numbers 
are plus 00970, minus 05627. That's 5-1/2 de-

07 01 00 22 CC Roger, 7- Go ahead, we're standing by. 

07 01 00 2l+ CDR Okay, Jack, I understood that you're to knock 

off the attitude hold at l69 hours and 10 min- 
utes. Does that mean you want to terminate 
the test at that time as well? 

07 01 00 36 CC Stand by, Wally. 

07 01 00 1+0 IMP Jack, a little further on that. We're sitting 

at 65 now on the SPS propellant tank tempera- 
ture, and it's the lowest it's been and not 
about to get down to any 1+5 by the end of 
this test. 

07 01 00 56 CC Roger. Understand, Walt. Standby. 

07 01 02 03 CC Apollo 7, Houston. . 

07 01 02 06 LMP Go, Jack. 

07 01 02 08 CC Okay, Walt, on the SPS temperatures, we've 

had a data loss here, and we hope to be back 
in shape at Guam, and we'll take a look at the 
temperatures there and give you a little bit 
further hack on this cold-soak test. And on 
the termination of the attitude control test 
at 10, that was for the MIN DEADBAHD, HIGH 
RATE. Then we pick up the MAX DEADBAND, LOW 
RATE test from there on. We should be through 
with that before we get down into perigee. 

07 01 02 38 IMP I'm MAX DEADBAND, LOW RATE now. 

07 01 02 1*1 CC Okay, real fine. 

07 01 02 1*2 IMP What do you want at 10 - MAX DEADBAND, HIGH 

RATE? 

07 01 02 51 CC Roger. 



07 01 02 52 LMP If you go MAX DEAD BAND, HIGH RATE, that will 

be good enough for the cold soak, so I'll do 
that at 10. 

07 01 02 59 CC The attitude before should have been MIN DEAD- 

BAND, HIGH RATE. Now we should be MAX DEAD- 
BAND, LOW RATE. 

07 01 03 06 LMP Okay, I'll reverse it, and we had (laughter) 

MAX DEAD BAND, LOW RATE, so far. 

07 01 03 13 CC Okay then, pick it up MIN DEAD BAND, HIGH RATE, 

and we'll try to get that before we go through 
perigee . 

07 01 03 20 LMP Okay. 

' 07 01 03 21 CDR I'll flip it now then, Jack, just to make it 

early. 

07 01 03 25 CC Okay. 

07 01 03 31 LMP Hey, Jack. You may have lost your data read- 

out, but I've got good ones onboard here. 
And I've checked the oxidizer line temperature 
down below, and looks like it's a little some- 
thing, little under 170, propellant tank tem- 
perature 165, and that should be as good as 
your data readout. What I'm saying is we're 
never going to get down to the point where 
I'm going to check the heater out. I might 
suggest that when we do terminate this test, 
it would be useful to turn on the SPS line 
heaters to A/B and watch for a rise - at 
least to see if they're working at all. 

07 01 0U 03 CC Okay, we copy that. 

07 01 Oh 05 LMP Okay, do you concur with that? 

07 01 0k 09 CC We're going to put that in the mill and dis- 

cuss it here. 

07 01 0U 15 LMP - Jack, on Tananarive, it turns out you can 

broadcast it in the blind to us there, and the 
odds are we'll get it.

Will do. 

Thank you. 

BAND, HIGH RATE, then you can return to 

normal cold-soak attitude configuration.

want to keep going with this cold-soak test?

Okay, if you guys lose data you can always 
ask me over the loop, and I'll give you my 
readouts. They're supposed to he prime. 

Okay. We've got data now. 

Just remind the guys that's possible, though.

Very good. 

Walt, on that hydrogen - quantities: tank 1, 
39- 8j tank 2, 37-6. 

Roger, I'll continue with the "balancing- I'm 
wondering about the feasibility of maybe of 
over - overshooting about 1 percent with 
tank 1. 

Roger. 

And, 7, we're about 1 minute LOS Carnarvon. 
We pick up Guam at 169:12. 

Roger, that means perigee is 36 minutes awa>. 
If you want Uo minutes on this control mode, 
that should be interesting. 

Roger, Wally, we had intended to do the MIN 
DEADBAJJD, HIGH RATE, first to minimize the 
RCS firing as we went through perigee. 

They're about the same. 

Apollo 7, Guam, 

Okay, go ahead. 

Walt, we'd like to balance these hydrogen 
tanks as close as possible to each other. 

Understand, I'll stand by for your call, 
because I show right now that they're getting 
pretty close, I'd say maybe a percent apart. 

We'll give you a call. 

And we're 1 minute LOS Guam. We pick you up

Okay, Walt, you're pretty weak. But on your 
question on the primary evaporator, we would 
like to return the primary evaporator to AUTO. 

Going to AUTO now. 

Should I bring it into operation as we've 
been doing before? 

I'll go ahead and bring it on the line as we 
have been. 

Okay, Walt, if you just place that primary 
evaporator in AUTO, it will cycle by itself, 
and we're expecting a cycle sometime tonight. 

Well, it's liable to also dry up again sometime 
tonight. If that's okay with you, I can go 
ahead and bring it on down but - okay, going 
to AUTO.

procedure for the secondary evaporator in the 
event it dries out. We've run some tests and 
have come up with the procedures if you want 
to copy it. 

Is this something that somebody dreamed up 
after all these months? I've been told you 
can not reservice the secondary evaporator. 

That is correct. We've come up with a proce- 
dure to do it. 

I don't know how everybody gets so smart in 
one week's time, but I'll go ahead and copy 
it. How long is it? 

Four steps. 

Very long steps? 

Ho, real short. 

Hit me with it. 

Okay, you want to turn the evaporator and 
water control switch secondary to AUTO. 

That's where it is anyway, isn't it? 

Roger. Then you want to turn your secondary 
coolant loop EVAP switch to EVAP for 5, plus 
or minus 1, seconds, then reset for 10, plus 
or minus 1, seconds. 

Roger. You copy that, Walt? 

I got evaporator water control secondary to 
AUTO, which is where it normally is when it 
Is running. I go to the EVAP position for 
5 seconds and then reset for 10 seconds , I 
assume immediately afterwards . Is that cor- 
rect? 

Affirmative. 5 seconds, plus .or minus 1 sec- 
ond, and then reset to plus or minus 1 second. 
Okay, then repeat this - this step above for 
kO - for a recommended 1+0 cycles.

you can reservice. And this is kind of Mickey

We are very worried about the ears. They're

seriously considering reentering shirtsleeve. 
I mean, we're afraid we can't clear out ears 
on the way down. If we do have to clear them 
on the way down, we have to take the helmets 
off, and then they become a hazard bouncing 
around the cockpit. We feel the risk of 
rupturing our eardrums is higher than the

Go ahead. 

Roger, Walt, I'd like you to go this relay 
C0MM mode test. 

Roger, Bill, we've already done that once, 
and we'll just configure it the same way we 
did then. Right? 

This is for USB up and VHF down. 

Roger, it's the same configuration for either 
one. Is there any exception to the exceptions? 

Apollo 7, Houston. Say, Walt, they say the 
test didn't work last time, and EEC0M would 
like them to go ahead and go through this 
check the way they had written it, to see - 
to make quite sure that they had covered all 
their bets here. 

Well, I wondered if - Say, what are they 
getting on their slide rule? 

Apollo 7, Houston. Opposite OMNI. 

Roger, compare what they've got for you with 
our slide rule and pass up the differences, 
will you?

The 53, 5k combination goes back very well. 
The one problem., of course, that ve discovered 
during the flight and then forgot about, was 
that a urine dump dropped just before sunset, 
and we were deluged with frost particles that 
light the spectrum. In addition, we had a 
dump, probably from the water bottle, and that 
kept us- blinded for a good 10 minutes into the 
sunset. This is not fatal on this particular 
run, but it's something to remember in debrief- 
ing for the lunar crew

That's the river - it looks large, it might.be 
the Amazon, we're guessing. It goes into the 
Amazon, but the cloud formation does not form 
over the river all the way down to the Atlantic 
Ocean, and that's the reason for the picture.

Okay, well, I guess - 

Well, we've been. thinking to clear the air on 
this a bit, is that - probably that you ought 
to don the suits in any case, and have the 
heel protection. Okay, then the question of 
whether you put helmets on or whether you 
release them, whether you can clear your nose 
at the start with it on, and not tied to the 
neck ring, or off. I think that's all subject 
to some discussion. You guys got a better 
feel for that than anybody else. 

Yes. 

Okay. Well, we will - we'll just go ahead 
and work on it. We've been thinking about 
this for a week. 

We'll stand by. 

... about LOS. We'll ask you about it in 
some later information. 

Okay. We'll work on it.

Now we've - we've, at least Walt and I have 
started drinking out of our little plastic

too hard to work anymore. Something is 
wrong with the trigger, very hard to operate,

Roger, we show 2k percent now. 
Did you say 2kl 

Oops, we just lost data again. 
Okay, I read about 15 in here. 
Okay now, I'm going to shut it off. 
Roger, we concur. 

I've still got that big water bubble around 
the fitting. 

Great . 

It's really funny looking. It's a big - almost 
a sphere. It's as big around as a silver 
dollar. It's just hanging on the wall by the 
fittings for the water dump. 

I'll "be darned. 

Is the leak between the hose and the 

fitting, or between the fitting and the panel? 

It's between the fitting and the panel - the 
water service panel. It leaks around that 
... , the area you have to take the panel off 
to put that fitting on. 

Roger. 

It doesn't hurt anything. It just forms that 
big blot) and Just stays there until you wipe 
it up. 

7, Houston. 

Right. Go. 

Roger. On this passive thermal control test 
tomorrow, we don't want to use the same pro- 
cedures that you have onboard' except we want_ 
to pitch, instead of roll.

the difference "between the apparent horizon 
and the real-earth horizon for the calculations 
on some midcourse direction. 

Yes, I understand that, but I don't under- 
stand what use it is "because tddcourse naviga- 
tion is some several thousand miles out from the 
earth. And at that point, this horizon jazz 
doesn't mean anything. Hell, it's all going to 
he one. I mean, the point is the airglow is not 
going to he 20 feet wide anymore when you're 
out a 1000 miles. It's the only place this 
program applies anyway. 

Roger, we see what you're saying, but we still 
don't have a hack on what this difference is; 
we don't have any hack what the difference is, 
so we'd like to get at least one data point 
on that. 

Yes, okay, we can go ahead and do it.

08 19 27 59 CDR Roger, we'll get it ON. 



08 19 28 58 CC Apollo 7, Houston. Would you say again last? 

08 19 29 01 CDR Roger. We will turn them on. We're not very 

good at turning them off. 

08 19 29 33 LMP Hey, Bill. You know we've got the SPS line 

heaters OFF and are leaving them OFF now? 

08 19 29 39 CC Okay. Roger. 

08 19 58 59 CC Affirmative. 

08 19 59 00 CMP ... Is that correct? 

08 19 59 03 CC Affirmative. 

08 19 59 05 CMP Okay, and you want to go through it twice? 

Or do you want me to do my mark twice . . . , 
twice? 

08 19 59 11 CC Two marks. 

08 19 59 lU CC That's right. 

08 19 59 18 CC But we only need two marks each time. 

08 19 59 22 CDR Just two marks, huh? 

08 19 59 25 CC Affirmative. 

08 20 01 U8 CMP Hey, Bill, do you read? 

08 20 01 55 LMP Starting with frame 35 on magazine B - 

3h or 35 - I started skip-mapping with 
alternate red and green filters across 
Africa. 

08 20 03 15 LMP I started skip-mapping the mult i spectral 

photography across Africa. I'm taking two 
pictures in a row with the red filter and 
then two pictures in a row with the green 
filter, so I can get one of each over the same 
site. 

08 20 0U 5!* LMP All right, the photographing was handicapped 

by the presence of a tremendous amount of 
cloud cover over Africa at this area.

08 20 10 32 LMP Well, those pictures that were shot on 

magazine B - that was the multispectral 
stuff coming across Mauritania on down 
through Ghana and the beginning of Gabon. 
They're all wasted film. The slide was in, 
and thanks to the modification of the Hassel- 
"blad camera - this thing will shoot very nicely 
. with that slide in.

RATE 2, which is a display system ... The 
problem shoots the whole thing. As a result, 
the crew is all screwed up. 

08 21 U9 01 CMP Time, 213 hours ^9 minutes; they are attempting 

to perform the horizon landmark test, which is 
going to . . . marks on the horizon. The first 
, mark is done with the sextant. They got as far 

as step 3 and proceeded to take it to step h, 
which is unknown landmark. They got a PROGRAM 
ALARM and a RESTART. These lights and 
they were unable to enter a VERB, a NOUN, or 
anything like that. After waiting several 
minutes and deliberating, they decided to 
take the option of performing the so-called 
N0-G0 effort, to punch the MARK 3 REJECT 
button and the RESET button simultaneously. 
This did, in fact, release the RESTART. How- 
ever, it called up the PROGRAM ALARM, and we 
have a 1302. It's a SQRT augment negative 
argument. Apparently we're in the reentry. 
The problem was, first, marking on the horizon 
and accepting those marks, somehow calling upon 
the computer to work with square roots of negative 
numbers. And it didn't like that too well.

08 21 52 5!+ CC Apollo 7» Houston through Tananarive. 

08 21 52 57 CMP Roger, Jack. I Just gave you a great P22 bitch 

and a dandy readout problem. I've got a 
PROGRAM ALARM and a RESTART light. I'm unable 
to get out of it because of this GO jam thing 
that's part REJECT and RESET. This wiped out 
the RESTART finally. Called up the alarm 1302, 
which has the practical effect that the computer 
was trying to work with negative square roots, 
or square roots with negative numbers, rather. 
I'd like to compliment all the fine planners 
who had a hand in that one. 

08 21 53 32 CDR Yes, Jack, we have a comment. Do you read me?

08 21 5U 20 CMP Jack, I repeated a long list. Don't you read 

me down there? 

08 21 5U 30 CC I'd rather get to wait until Carnarvon to get 

the rundown so I don't miss anything. 

08 21 5U 35 CMP You're going to miss a hell of a lot if you don't 

get it here. Okay, if you like, I'll wait for 
them to brief you. We did not get the results 
that you were after. We didn't get a damn thing, 
in fact. All we got was a PROGRAM ALARM and 
RESTART light and a CMC light.

Roger, understand, copy. You got a PROGRAM 
ALARM, RESTART, and CMC light. 

You bet your arse we did. I got rid of it "by 
going to GO Jam which was ... the computer 
... consecutive numbers. And it happened when 
I punched the PROCEED button at step 10 in the 
program of P20 - I think it's a result of mark- 
ing on the horizon rather than on real landmarks. 

Okay, Donn. You faded there. I didn't quite 
get it all. 

I didn't get anything ... brief you over 
Carnarvon? 

Okay, Donn. Copy. You didn't get anything 
in P22. We'll be with you over Carnarvon in - 
at 05. 

Roger. As far as we're concerned, somebody 
down there screwed up royally when he laid that 
one on us. 

Jack, do you read? 

Houston, Apollo 7- 

I just completed a P51, star angle difference 
00000. 

Tir.e, 2ll+ hours and 22 minutes; program 52, 
option 2, gyro-torquing angles, plus 0072*t, 
plus 00376, minus OI696, star difference

08 23 32 U6 LMP Roger. Who was the supernumerary a while 

ago? 

08 23 37 U5 CDR At 215 hours (laughter) 37 minutes, it's easy 

to observe the bell of the big engine from 
the number 2 window of the command module. 
The attitude is approximately zero roll, zero 
yaw, 180 degrees pitch at sunset, and when 
the urine dump occurred, there were a large 
number of sparkles that formed a light pattern 
down to the number 2 window. Now, the sun 
in the background in back of the command module 
would light up the sparkles. You could see a 
tunnel of silvery stuff which lasts for many 
hundreds of feet. And the silhouette of the 
command module , including that of the big 
engine, the bell exhaust, is very easy to 
discern.

09 00 50 32 LMP Roger, we've taken numerous packs of 70mm, 

S0121. 

09 00 50 39 LMP The first pack we took we shot at ASA 6k so 

we wouldn't have to reset the light meter 
for S0368. And all the other S03.21 packs 
have heen shot at an ASA of 50. And I'd 
like to make sure you get that to the people 
who process these. I've marked the pack 
that was shot at ASA 61+.

09 00 51 22 CC Sounds like a pretty good technique there, - 

looking out one of the five windows, there. 

09 00 51 27 CDR Yes, we're really in great shape. Even in 

drifting flight, we've got a lot of good

09 00 51 kh CDR Very good. 

09 00 59 13 CDR On magazine R for Romeo, on landmark 227, 

on the east coast of Africa, the landmark 
is wrong. There's a "bridge over what was 
a strip of land. There's a photograph on 
magazine R, and the landmark-checking 
exercise may not have worked out. The

Just some heater ON times. 

How long will this thing take to run? 

It's total of 6 hours. I've got some times 
here for you. 

Okay, I'll stick it in the flight plan, and 
it'll probably get finished up when Donn is 
up. 

Okay, real fine. Let me know when you are

Okay. Will you be in station contact at 
220 plus 57? 

Affirmative. These times are all predicated

range, no lower, and the 0^ stratification 

test between, say, 30 and k5 percent, no 
lower than that? 

Walt, you're coming in weak and garbled. 
Copied the "did I check about the stratifi-

different instrumentation. So we'd like to 
cycle the CRY0 fans , tank 2 fans , once we 
acquire Guam.' I'll let you - I'll give you

Affirmative.

Roger. 

On this optics degradation, what we want you 
to do is remove the sextant and telescope 
eyepieces and observe the internal lens of 
both the sextant and the telescope. This 
would he with your eyeball about a foot away 
from the panel, during a dayside pass, with 
the optics pointed somewhere above the 
horizon. 

Optics pointed where? About on the horizon? 

Optics above the horizon 

Okay. 

- - should be able to observa some deposits 
on this objective lens, similar to the ones 
that are on the windows. 

Well, there may be some, but it sure doesn't 
affect the view that you get through the 
optics eyepieces. 

They're as good now as they were when we 
took off. 

Say again, Donn. 

I say the - with the eyepieces on, the view 
through the sextant telescope is as good now 
as it was when we lifted off. 

I still didn't copy that very well, Donn. 

Well, disregard it. I'll - - 

You're clear now. Say again. 

Okay. If the eyepiece is installed, the 
view through the optics is as good now as 
it was when we started the flight. 

Roger, understand. What we'd like to do is 
get your evaluation with the eyepieces off, 
and see if you can see any deposits on 
those lenses, though.

are above the DAP redline, not uncomfortably 
now, but I recommend that, you be very 
sparing when you use quads Baker and Charlie, 
and so when you're maneuvering, don't use 
more than 5 pounds of RCS fuel for this - 
your picture taking. 

09 23 5h 15 CDR Roger, that's about all we need. 

09 23 5^ 17 CC Okay, fine, and we're recommending B and D 

ROLL. 

09 23 5h 22 CDR B and D ROLL, Roger. 

09 23 5U 27 CMP Jack, are you getting these PIPA bias 

numbers on downlink? 

09 23 5k U3 CC Okay, we're getting them now. 

09 23 5k 55 CMP Would you like me to read you the results 

or have you gotten all the stuff off the 
tape? 

09 23 55 02 CC Roger, we're copying them now, Donn. Just 

give us a few seconds here, and we'll have 
it all down.

09 23 55 13 CDR And, by the way, on the schedule for the 

Actifed, ve worked out a schedule like that 
about 3 days ago. Doctor Walt Cunningham 
was the finalizer, and it was 1 hour earlier 
than the whole schedule. 

09 23 55 29 CC Okay. 

09 23 55 33 CDR So the doctors are doing pretty well down 

there. 

09 23 55 37 CC Okay, Donn, would you read out the PIPA 

Mas, I guess we lost it - we lost the data. 

09 23 55 hi CMP Okay, Jack, the PIPA bias I got was: 

X plus 0 - 0.09, Y Is zero, Z is plus 0.08. 
The bias compensation that's presently loaded 
is plus 1050U, plus 0, plus 0.07UU0. So 
they're all very close to the actual. 

09 23 56 09 CC Okay, copy that. 

09 23 56 11 CDR Jack, unless I don't understand this EMS - 

what I do to the FMS bias is run it in 
DELTA-V and AUTO with - 30 seconds prior to 
burn and the duration of the burn. That's 
the only thing we're going to do in flight 
anyway. If anybody has any better ideas, 
I'll do it. That's all - that's all you 
use it for. 

09 23 56 3h CC Okay. We copy that. 

09 23 56 38 CC Okay, we're about to lose you over Carnar- 

von. We'll pick you up at Guam on the hour. 

09 23 56 \2 CMP Roger, we're going to coarse align and plane

Apollo 7» Houston through Tananarive. 

Loud and clear. How me? 

Roger, you're loud and clear also. 

Roger, you can correct that word in the 
flight plan from "landing" to "splash." 

Wally, for a point of information, we're 
assuming that the stowage will he nominal 
for retrofire. If you have any items that 
are stowed nonnominally , would you let us 
know for e.g. purposes? We would like to 
calculate e.g. rather closely. 

Understand. We'll have the gloves and the 
suit stowage bag would also he ... 

Okay, the C0MM is not the best here. You can 
give us a report over Mercury on that subject. 
We'll hit the Mercury at kk. 

Roger. 

Man! 

... I estimated about 3 pounds . 
Roger, LOS. 

That was magazine C of S0168. The first few 
feet on it is part of a suiting exercise we 
took in the spacecraft a little earlier. And 
the last, from 1*0 on down on the meter reading, 
at least, was sunrise, which was completed 
at 2UU:51:30 this morning.

Okay. We're at 7500, gang. 

We have three good chutes and we're descending 
very nicely. Our attitude very stahle on the 
main chutes. We have a slight pyro odor in 
the cockpit; that may "be fuel. We'll check 
that against something else later. We're 
going through the clag now. 

Roger, we closed the command module RCS 
propellant at about 12 - lh 000 "because of 
the odor in the cockpit. 

Wally, if you have a chance, we could go to 
DUMP on the CABIN PRESSURE RELEASE valve, and 
all we'll have to do is close them later. 

Let's go to DUMP. 

We'll have to close them "below a thousand.
