Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, are you ready to copy some cryo quantities?

Bill Anders (LMP)

I'm ready. How about O2 first.

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

Okay. O2 tank 1, I show 88.1 percent.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay. Could you give it to me in pounds, please?

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

Okay. You'll have to stand by while we convert that.

Bill Anders (LMP)

That's okay, Gene, go ahead, I'll take the percent.

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

Okay. We will try and get the pounds for you, too, Bill. Tank 1, oxygen 88.1.

Bill Anders (LMP)

What time is that for?

Bill Anders (LMP)

In weight not percentage.

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

Okay, O2 tank 1, 88.1, O2 tank 2, 87.37.

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

Okay, 2 tank 1, 75.97. Tank 2, 78.06. Over.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Okay, thank you very much. It looks good.

Frank Borman (CDR)

Go ahead, Houston, Apollo 8.

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

Okay. I've got a couple of things we need from you. I would like to get a battery C voltage. I would like to check a battery manifold pressure. Your high gain —

Frank Borman (CDR)

Battery C is 37 volts.

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

Understand 37 volts on battery C. Is that affirm?

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

Okay, thank you. And if you can get to the battery manifold pressure, like to read that one.

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

All right understand 0.6 volts. The angles you asked for on the high-gain antenna are pitch minus 45, and yaw 90.

Frank Borman (CDR)

Okay. Houston, this is Apollo 8. I'm going to just go into high gain now, and we're about ready to pick you up … works on REACQ.

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

Okay, and I have a scanning telescope star visibility item for you to pick up, when you're ready to copy that.

Frank Borman (CDR)

Roger, we'll get that on high gain when we get back to you.

Frank Borman (CDR)

We'll come back on high-gain.

Frank Borman (CDR)

That's not fair, we're there already.

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

That's pretty good acquisition, huh?

Frank Borman (CDR)

You guys are reading the DSKY. Go ahead Houston.

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

Okay, Apollo 8. Maybe we ought to try that one again next time, and the scanning telescope star visibility is scheduled for a 34 10 in the flight plan, and it'll be star number 31. The angles are roll 184.7, pitch 23.4, yaw 14.3, shaft and trunnion zero. Over.

Frank Borman (CDR)

Understand; star 31, roll 184 7, pitch 23 4, yaw 14 3, and star shaft and trunnion at zero.

Ken Mattingly (CAPCOM)

That's affirm, and that's copy star 31.

Bill Anders (LMP)

The LMP would like to take a Seconal and hit the hay.
