Jim Lovell (CMP)

We're all feeling pretty good now; no problems. We've all had about between 40 and 60 ounces of—or clicks of water so far today.

Jim Lovell (CMP)

The food: we're up to—we've eaten day 2, meal 2 so far. And both of us have eaten the rehydratables and the juices and about half of the solids.

Jim Lovell (CMP)

The cabin's running slightly cold. We do have one cabin fan ON, and we're in full heat, and it's running just slightly under 70. Might be a design note for future spacecraft.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Roger, Jim. That fan pretty noisy?

Jim Lovell (CMP)

It's not as noisy as both fans when they're running; we cut it down to one fan.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Roger. We keep thinking we hear it when you're talking to us.

Jim Lovell (CMP)

I wouldn't be a bit surprised.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Houston, we're showing a glycol EVAP OUT TEMP around 44, and a RAD OUT TEMP of about 28. I wonder if we might try some manual mixing here to raise the glycol EVAP TEMP OUT a little bit?

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. Houston, secondary loop is coming up.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. We're boiling the secondary EVAP, and the temperature's stabilized, and so we're gonna close up the EVAP pressure valve.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Roger, Bill. Before you try the manual mixing, we'd like you to give it a whirl at the manual and increase on the cabin TEMP. Over.

Bill Anders (LMP)

We've done that. We're in full HOT, and what is your—what's the lowest RAD OUT—individual RAD OUT TEMP you seen here during our PTC?

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, this is Houston. We saw 26 one time.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Roger. Understand; plus 26.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. Go ahead with your manual mixing. Suggest you set your EVAP OUT at about 55. Over.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. We'll give that a try, and let us know if the RAD OUT TEMPs get too low.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Roger. We're monitoring.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Roger. We have it stabilized about 53 degrees, and we will leave it there, but we will go back AUTO if you start having any concern about the radiators.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Roger, Bill. We are showing 51.4 here.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, this is Houston. We are going to have a command changeover to Honeysuckle in about 2 minutes. Over.

Jim Lovell (CMP)

Roger, Houston. Standing by.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. That was Honeysuckle to Madrid.

Jim Lovell (CMP)

Roger. Did you delete the cislunar NAV exercise at 47:15?

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, and we added the extra star sightings to the one at 45.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Houston, Apollo 8. How do you read?

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, this is Houston. Buenas dias, muchachos.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Buenas dias. We're going to be answering your calls pretty quietly for a little while here to let the CDR get to sleep. If you can't hear us, why, just tell us so.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Roger. My two cohorts are going to try and get some sleep here, so y'all might keep a good eye on the systems. I'm going to move over to the other side.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. We're getting low bit rate now. We could do better with a high-gain antenna before you move over to the other side. Over.
