Houston, Apollo 8. Over.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Good afternoon, Jerry.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. Somebody said something about checking out the evaporator—evaporators. What do you want to do?

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Roger. Before we get too far along, we'd like to see, essentially with the secondary evaporator check, what we got on the redundant components check.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Roger. EECOM says to be sure and let it go for at least 5 minutes.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Roger. Now you want to check out the primary evaporator also, or did you decide it's not necessary?

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

I guess they decided it's not necessary, Bill.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. Secondary glycol loops coming on the line.

Bill Anders (LMP)

And the secondary evap's coming on the line.

Bill Anders (LMP)

And it's stabilized the leg, oh, for about 5 minutes.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Alright. What do you have in mind here in the way of activating the secondary loop prior to separation? It looks like if we do have a cabin fan problem, we won't be able to do a full-blown coldsoak. Is there anything that we can do that'll do any good?

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Well, right now, Bill, in the checklist, we're showing this activation at about minus 1 hour. Let me check with EECOM for a minute and see if they got any more words considering the cabin fan situation.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. Looks like a good time. One hour before SEP—entry interface would be fine.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. It won't do any good, then, to fool around with these cabin temp valves. …

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Bill, stand by. You're—got a lot of background noise.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. This coldsoak is built around the premise that you've got a cabin heat exchanger, in my view; and if you haven't got a cabin heat exchanger, I'm wondering just what you can do.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. We think it'll still do a little bit of good so we'd just as soon go through with it.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. Even bypassing the suit heat exchanger and that part of it too, huh?

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Also, Bill, your secondary loop is looking good.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. We just had 5 minutes. I'll deactivate it now.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Houston, Apollo 8. Over.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. Go.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Hey, Jerry. When do you want to crank up the VHF, anyway?

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Roger. VHF Simplex—well, we had that on the checklist for about minus 4 hours.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. We wanted—we wanted to put it out prior to MAX range, don't you think? Get an idea of when we're picking it up?

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Roger. Stand by, Bill. They're talking about it.

Jerry Carr (CAPCOM)

Roger. Entry interface minus 4 hours is just about right for the VHF. That is about—oh, 142 GET.
