Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Stand by one, Frank. We noticed that you've got your PTC attitude peaked up a bit, and I'll check on your tape dump.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. The quality of the tape dump has been very good. We have about 15 minutes to dump, which we will do the next time we get high gain. Over.

Frank Borman (CDR)

How's the voice quality been?

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

It's been very good, Frank.

Frank Borman (CDR)

Okay. We'll send you something down here shortly.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. Over.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Frank, on this tape recorder, we have the tape motion stopped right now. If you would like to record some, we will give you the tape in motion so that you may do so. Is that what you would like? Over.

Frank Borman (CDR)

Roger. Houston, why don't you just give us salvo so we can control the switches here.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

You should have it now. Over.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. Over.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Houston, Apollo 8. Over.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, this is Houston. Over.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Roger. Are you capable of taking a high-bit FM dump for voice on the OMNI's?

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

That is negative, Bill. Not quite, on the OMNI's.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. We will catch you next time around then.

Jim Lovell (CMP)

Good morning, Mike. How are things going down there?

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Hi, Jim. Things are going real fine. How are you doing up there? Did you get a good night's sleep?

Jim Lovell (CMP)

Oh, you know. The first night in space all the time; it's a little slow.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

The old man woke you up earlier than he needed to.

Jim Lovell (CMP)

Well, we just couldn't sleep any longer.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. The next time you are locked up on the high gain, give us a call, and we will configure for a dump. Over.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Roger. We would like an evaluation of the voice comments. Over.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Roger. Understand. So far, it's been very good. We will evaluate this one as soon as we can.

Bill Anders (LMP)

How are the systems looking down there, Houston?

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. Go ahead.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Roger. I've been in the sack. How do the systems look?

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Everything is looking real good, Bill.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. How much longer do you expect on charging battery A?

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Stand by, Bill. We will get you an exact number on it.
