3.0 COMMUNICATIONS 

3.1 INTRODUCTION 

The following is a transcript of the MA-9 flight communications 
derived from "both the spacecraft onboard recordings and the Mercury 
network station recordings to form a single text. This is, therefore, 
a complete transcript of the air-to-ground and ground-to-air communica- 
tions during station passages, and inflight comments made by the pilot 
while between stations. A few non-flight -related transmissions and 
an occasional repetitive word or partial sentence were removed by the 
astronauts and the editors where clarity could be improved. Instances 
of this type are noted by an asterisk at the start of the transmission 
that was altered. Where a whole transmission has been deleted due to 
lack of confirmation or non-flight-relationship, the asterisk will 
appear where the transmission was removed. The text is otherwise 
verbatim. 

The format used for presentation is as follows: the first column, 
at the left, contains the capsule elapsed time (c.e.t.) from liftoff 
in hours, minutes, and seconds, at which each communication was initiated. 
The second column identifies the communicator, and the third column 
contains the text of the communication. The station in communication 
with the astronaut is designated at the initiation of communications. 
Where no station contact is made through a complete orbital pass the 
text is headed with the orbital pass number only. In addition, each 
page contains, below the page number, the station or stations and 
orbital pass number transcription contained on that page. 

The c.e.t. was reduced from the recording of the spacecraft clock 
commutated time segments on both the onboard tape and the network 
station tapes. These c.e.t. times are accurate to +0.8 seconds. Timing 
of a few communications was not obtained due to either weak, noisy 
signals on the network tapes, or to short sampling of onboard commutated 
time segments caused by commutator sampling interruptions when the 
pilot was recording while in the VOX-record, programmed mode and paused 
longer than l/2 second. When timing was not obtained for either of 
these reasons, the first column will contain the notation "Unreadable" 
for that communication. 

The communicators listed in column two are identified as follows: 

P - Pilot 

CC - Spacecraft communicator at the range station. 
SY - Systems monitor at the range station. 
F - Flight director at Mercury Control Center. 



Rl - Primary recovery Helicopter pilot. 

CONFIDENTIAL 



page 3 - 2 CONFIDENTIAL 



R2 - Bachup recovery Helicopter pilot. 
Stony - Launch complex lk blockhouse communicator. 



At various times throughout the flight, the pilot or network 
station communicator would indicate a precise time, event, or action 
by the use of a significant work, such as "MARK", or "NOW". The 
transcript editors also selected a few significant words or events 
for timing. The timing of these words or events was accomplished 
by the same process as was used to determine the c.e.t. times for 
column one, and is indicated by the time enclosed in parentheses 
followed by the superscript T. 

Within the text, a series of dots is used to designate communica- 
tions, or portions of communications which could not be deciphered. 
A single dash indicates a pause during a communication. Information 
contained within unmarked parentheses indicates editorial insertions 
for clarity as an aid to the non- systems -oriented reader.

^5 (degrees) on the suit dome. These tempera- 
tures have taken a setting of 2.0 (comfort 
control valve setting) on the suit and about 
3.8 (comfort control valve setting) on the

My cabin pressure has slowly dropped to the 
advertised value of 5.2 (psia) and appears 
to be holding. My suit dome has dropped 
down again now to about k2 (degrees) and 
seems to be oscillating about this point 
area. Body temperature is good, not quite 
as cool as I would prefer, but good. My 
suit inlet temperature indicates 60 degrees 
however, so the sun is probably the biggest 
factor heating me up. I have drunk some 
water.

Peroxide auto fuel tank temp - is 72 (degrees). 

Isolated bus voltage is 28 (volts).

CC Roger. We understand. We also have a 

message from the Cape, It's possible 
that you only felt the squib blow and 
not the beacon deploy. Is there any 
way that you might check this? 

P Not from in here, I don't think. 

CC Roger, you haven't seen the Beacon at this 

time. 

P Negative. I still haven't seen the Beacon. 

CC Check. 

P There was considerable noise, though, as 

if something were departing. 

CC Say again, Seven. 

P *There was considerable noise, which sounded 

like those doors blowing open so I assume 
the Beacon has departed.

07 59 Ok P ^Scanners are not working very rapidly. Space- 

craft is yawed to the left very, ver. r , except 
in yaw is, ail right I mean. Correction, 
is rolled to the left about 10 degrees and 
the gyros read okay. Here comes some cor- 
rection in now. They're beginning to cor- 
rect. And this syringe full is about full. 
There is a lot of air in it, this is the last 
one I'll take out. 



08 00 47 P I'll add it on to all the others, I believe 

that's 5-1/2. Took 10 large swallows of 
water. And I am now opening the Kermey 
Kleinknecht clamp. 

08 16 09 P *Peroxide reserve tank is 72 degrees. Peroxide 

manual tank 70 degrees, peroxide auto is 79 
degrees. Cabin outlet is 66 (degrees). 250 
inverter is 105 (degrees), 150 inverter is 
120 (degrees), standby inverter is (degrees). 
Oxygen, 90 and 100 (percent). Fuel, 86 and 
102 (percent) . . . Here I have the light in 
sight, in the top portion of my window. 
Extinctometer reading I got was - not any 
good there, blocking out by the top part of 
the window. ... I did observe the ground 
light, it's quite bright. 

08 23 25 P Very recognizable in the little town, a little 

horseshoe shaped town was quite distinctive, 
it was right beside it. 

Unreadable P *Now in auto reentry. Gyros going to slave. 

I got there in fly-by-wire low, to 0, 0, 0 
(degrees), selected auto reentry and have now, 
put the gyros to slave. 

08 26 15 P *Manual pitch plane precession was a little too 

great, as the gyros are torquing a little bit 
of negative pitch in here now, to correct for 
the pitch torquing . . . overage. The damn 
desk is unusable, it's too far down on the lap. 
And it will not lock down, tty legs are in 
the way at zero g. Can not bring it down to 
lock down.

08 35 35 P *There seems to be some difficulty with the 

number two urine collection bag. It's very- 
difficult to pump more than the l-l/2 
syringe fulls that I got into it. And I 
hear a hissing back behind me, so I suspect 
there is too much pressure on it, and I am 
going to cease on this one. 

08 kk 29 P Auto reentry. I see when each one of the 

thrusters fires, the little fireflies come 
out of the thrusters and drift away to the 
rear. Some of them impinging on the space- 
craft but depart later. - The auto reentry 
(ASCS reentry attitude mode) portion of the 
auto mode is holding within plus or minus, 
within a H-l/2 degree band. That is, it 
appears to be slightly more sloppy than ASCS, 
orbit. However, this may not be true, ASCS 
orbit is not very fine control either. But 
it is controlling it, fairly well.

I'm eating a pot roast of beef. I've had 
considerable difficulty getting the water 
in it from this water device on the McDonnell 
water tank. I spilled water all over my 
hands, and all over the cockpit here trying 
to get some in it. I have succeeded in get- 
ting about half of it dampened and am pro- 
ceeding to eat.

place objects out into the cabin and let 
go of them and they'll stay in relatively 
their same position. This is w>xrLaaut

where you have really the feeling of freedom, 
and you aren't worried about the systems 
fouling up. You have everything turned off, 
and just drifting along lazily. However, I 
haven't encountered any of this so called 
split-off phenomena. Still, note that I am 
thinking very much about returning to earth 
at the proper time and safely. Over.

Hello, Faith Seven, Muchea Cap Com. Do you

*It is 21 36 46 NOW. (21 36 46) T . I am observing 
lights of several small cities and scattered 
areas on the ground. Apparently over the east 
coast of Australia. 

*I am viewing to the east now, and I can see very 
clearly as I mentioned before, a band of haze 
layer above the earth's horizon, through which 
the stars can be seen. Although they're quite 
faint here and then clear below it. It goes 
around the earth, approximately the same dis- 
tance around, just a Corona type thing around 
the earth's surface. 

*I would like to take this time to say a little 
prayer for all the people, including myself, 
involved in this launch and this operation. 
Father, thank You, for the success we have had 
in flying this flight. Thank You for the privi- 
lege of being able to be in this position, to 
be up in this wondrous place, seeing all these 
many startling, wondrous things that You've 
created. Help guide and direct all of us, that 
we may shape our lives to be good, that we may 
be much better Christians, learn to help one 
another, to work with one another, rather than 
to fight. Help us to complete this mission 
successfully. Help us in our future space 
endeavors, that we may show the world that a 
democracy really can compete, and still are 
able to do things in a big way, are able to 
do research, development, and can conduct 
various scientific, very technical programs in 
a completely peaceful environment. Be with all 
our families. Give them guidance and encourage- 
ment, and let them know that everything will be 
okay. We ask in Thy name. Amen.

By the way, we have all joined tennis clubs. 
Excellent. That's the best thing to do. 
Roger. 

Faith Seven, Muchea Cap Com. We read a very low 
suit dome temp. 

Roger. I'm running it very low. I'm working 
it back up now. 

Say again, Faith Seven. 

*Roger. I've already made a decrease in setting. 
It should be coming back up shortly. 

*The suit dome temp is still acting up. Suit 
inlet temp is back up to about 68 degrees. 
The suit dome temp has gone down to about 
38 degrees. Have suit coolant almost off 
now. 

All right, suit coolant is shut completely 
off. Now it should come up. 

. . . read you loud and clear. 

Some of this fine plumbing they put in 

this thing. This sad thing on the needle, 

- on the diaphragm fitting has come out so 

I can't change the needle to any other fitting. 

- I'll have to leave the Kenny Kleinknecht 
clamp closed. - Meantime, I can't pump any 
more. - That container is full, and so is 
the other one. 

I wish some of you guys who tried to stick 
in some of this plumbing and - connected 
here and there, and use it here and there 
would sit in here awhile and try and use 
the stuff. 

Wowi - Look at that bright sunshine. Oeee

I've had a continuing battle with the 
plumbing in here. I was not able to 
open the KK clamp, due to the fact that, 
that system is full of water. One of 
the needles broke off, or the little insert 
into It broke, and I am unable to transfer 
any more water out of the condensate tank.

*We figured the best way to do it, after 
gyros have warmed up, is to uncage, 
initiate a slow rate in any axis, and 
see if you have attitudes. If you do 
have attitudes, we feel that the Amp 
Cal has not latched at 0.05g. Over. 

Roger. Assume a slow rate in any axis and 
see if the attitudes follow. Right? 

Right. When you uncage the gyros, you'll 
have to set up a very slow rate and see 
if you have attitude indications. 

Roger. 

Seven, from Cape. We may have IDS before 
you are able to do this. Once you have 
done it, report to us through some other

You came back in loud and clear then. We 
have your clock setting 34 59 52, that's 
correct. 

That is affirmative. 

That's one hour off, right? 

Say again, Faith Seven. 

That's one hour beyond, right? 

That's correct. When we count down, we'll 
use minutes and seconds only. Over. 

Okay. 

They'll check you on this, on later in this 
pass. Over. We should be ready next time 
around. 

Roger. 

Is that next time around or the time after 
that? 

Say again.

not? 

That is correct, next time around when we see 
you, I will be firing.

off the cabin. 

32 44 32 CC Roger. 

32 44 34 P I'm going to emergency rate on my oxygen for 

a moment just to see if it's the gauge, or 
if it actually is building up a little. 

32 44 42 CC Roger. Understand emergency flow rate at this 

time? (Tone noted) 

32 45 03 P Roger. It does not seem to be decreasing on 

the gauge, so it must be the gauge error. 

32 45 10 CC Roger. We're reading an increase on the ground 

as well. 

32 45 23 P I'm back on normal oxygen rate.

33 05 43 P Well, things are beginning to stack up a little. 

ASCS inverter is acting up. And my CO2 is 
building up in the suit. Partial pressure 
of O2 is decreasing in the cabin. Standby 
inverter won't come on the line. Other than 
that things are fine.

are in. 



34 19 04 Rl Hello Astro. This is 1 Indian Gal. Over. 

34 19 07 P Roger, this is Astro, go ahead. 

34 19 10 Rl Roger, 1 Indian Gal. .Je are circling you at 

about 500 feet you're coming down very 
nicely. Sea state is about 5 to 8 foot 
waves, a few white caps. Wind is just per- 
fect for a Helo (Helicopter) operation. 
The carrier (USS Kearsarge) is about five 
miles away. 

34 19 31 P Roger. 

34 19 42 Rl Astro, you are swaying just a little bit, looks 

like about a 50 or rather, correction a 30 
foot sway. You're coming down very nicely. 
You are presently about 1,000 feet. The 
wind is from the southwest at about 12 knots, 
perhaps 15. 

34 20 06 P Roger, understand. 

34 20 14 Rl Astro, 1 Indian Gal. How do you feel? Over. 

34 20 17 P Roger, I'm in fine shape. Excellent. 

34 20 22 Rl Thank you Astro, this is Indian Gal. We still 

are circling you very nicely. You're now 
steadying up quite nicely, about 400 feet. 
You are passing ray starboard side. 

34 20 35 P Roger. 

34 20 36 Rl Have 3 Helos right around you. Got the swim- 

mers with me. They'll be out just about 
the time you're setting down on the water.

Roger. 

The carrier is only about 3 miles away. 
Couldn't be a nicer shot. 

But I missed that third elevator. 

Now you are in the water in good shape. 

Your parachute is still with you. Chute has 
spilled and is in the water. 

Collar in the water. 

Roger. 

Your dye markers out now, Astro. Looks nicely. 
I'm coming in now for the swimmers. 

Astro, your capsule is on the side. The cap- 
sule, parachute did not deploy. 

Roger. 

Nov? your capsule is coming up nicely. It's 
sitting at about a 30 degree angle on the 
water. 

Okay. 

You look pretty good. 

I'm on top over you, directly overhead. Your 
capsule is now erected nicely. You're bounc- 
ing on the sea. I notice now that the para- 
chute has released. I'm now going to drop 
the swimmers. 

Roger. Hold them clear a minute and I'll get 
the HF antenna up . 

Astro, from Begonia on Kearsarge. How do you 
read me? Over. 

Roger, Begonia, Faith Seven. Read you loud 
and clear. Over.

Fine, couldn't be better. 

Astro, a_l the swimmers are out, the first 
one is on your capsule now, he's pounding. 
Do you hear him? Over. 

Roger, good shape. (Shouting to swimmers). 

Hello dahr, how are you? (Shouting to swimmers). 

Gordon, f:his is Begonia, vie estimate approxi- 
mately 45 minutes to have you on deck on 
Kearsarge. Please advise your wishes and 
any info this subject. Over. 

I'm okay. I'll wait on the boat. (Shouting 
to swii.imers). 

I'm in good shape. 

* (Non-fli £ ;ht -related transmission omitted.) 
Astro, this is 1 Indian Gal. Do you hear the 
swimmers? Over. 

I just had my helmet off talking to the swimmers. 

Roger. 1 see you don't have smoke. Apparently, 
you are all right. What is, Begonia desires 
to know, what your desires about being picked 
up . Over . 

Roger. I'd like to come aboard the carrier 
if they will grant me permission for an Air 
Force :roop. 

* Roger. Begonia, this is 1 Indian Gal. Gordon 
Cooper desires to come on board the carrier 
if they will let an Air Force Officer aboard. 
Over . 

Roger. Permission granted, of course, and I 
don't know whether he heard me before or not. 
Estimate about 45 minutes to have him on 
deck. Over.

*Major, Begonia estimates 45 minutes for your 
on-deck time. What are your desires? 
Over. 

Roger. I'll wait to go on board. Over. 

Roger, understand that you desire pickup by 
Wildcat . . . 

Thank you sir. No, negative. I'll wait and 
go onboard the carrier. Begonia did you 
read? Over. 

Roger. I understand you will be hoisted by 
the carrier. Begonia did you read? Over. 

This is Begonia. I copy. Out. 

Indian Gal 1, Begonia. What status on collar? 
Over. 

Roger, collar is about half way around. The 
swimmers are in the water nicely. The cap- 
sule is working well. 

Roger. 

The parachute was a little delayed in deploying. 
It is now riding very nicely in the water. 

Roger Wildcat, Tea Kettle 222. Go . . . 

*They attached the collar just about all the 
way around. The sea state is the same as 
the ship. 

The collar, the capsule looks like it's riding 
at about a 20 degree angle. Quite steady in 
the water. 

One from two. 

One. Over.

I deploy swimmers? Over.

*This is one. Don't deploy swimmers at this 
time. The boat looks like it will pick up 
the chute. It is close enough, 

Roger . 

Wildcat, the collar now looks like it is all 
the way around the capsule, its just about 
to be inflated. 

The swiraners are still with it. The chute is 
still floating next to the capsule. They 
don't look like they are having any dif- 
ficulty. Looks like a normal operation. 

This is Begonia. Roger, out. 

*The collar is now inflated fully. 

It has picked the capsule up nicely. It is 
now erect, and the swimmers are making final 
ad jus tments. 

Begonia. Roger, out. 

Sorry, I missed that third elevator, Begonia. 

Begonia, Gordon Cooper says he's sorry he missed 
the third elevator. 

I think it's a quite acceptable shot, Major. 

Thank you. 

Begonia, the swimmers are now hanging on to 
the collar. It is fully inflated, the cap- 
sule is upright. The capsule looks like 
it's riding very nicely in the water, just 
going up and down slightly on the 5 to 8 
foot waves. There is a few white caps around 
but they are not breaking over the tower. 

Looks like a normal operation and they are 
just waiting for him. 

*This is Begonia. Gordon, are you in coramuni- 
cation with the swimmers at this time? Over.

I can yell to them through the hatch here. 

I understand that you can hear them through 
the hatch. Is that correct? 

Roger, we can communicate by yelling back and 
forth, I believe. 

Roger. Out. 

Major Cooper from the USS Kearsarge. Welcome 
to the Pacific. Go6d landing. 

*Major, the Kearsarge is now making a down base 
leg. They are going to make a normal 180 
approach to you. They are about 2 miles 
away coming down wind. They will start their 
turn into your position in about 10 minutes. 

Roger. Very fine. 

Hello. How are you doing? I'm fine. Okay. 
How are you? (Shouting to swimmers). 

Major, they estimate your miss at 3,900 yards. 
Looks like a record. 

Say again, sir. Say again, I was talking to 
the swimmers. 

Roger. You missed by 3,900 yards, very ac- 
ceptable. 

Thank you. 

What? I'll wait on the carrier. What? (To 
swimmers). 

Two, this is One. Looks like the parachute 
is sunk now, I don't see it anymore. There 
is a small Drogue chute still . . . upwind 
of the green dye. 

Delighted to have you back in the Pacific and 
congratulations on a wonderful, wonderful 
ride.

What? Yeah, I'll wait on the carrier. (To

Gordon, this is Begonia. John Graham will 
be on this line and be stationed down near 
the hangar, near the elevator, about the 
time that we pick you up. Thought I would 
alert you that he will be on the line to 
talk to you just before you get out. Over. 

Roger. Fine. 

Is there anything we can do in preparation -.
