[ Separation, the last major event before reentry and splash down, is getting closer ]

193:07:09 Aldrin: Houston, Apollo 11 has got VHF A Simplex on whenever you want to make a Comm check.

193:07:20 Evans: Apollo 11, Houston. Roger. You faded out a little bit there, Buzz. I understand you have the VHF Simplex A on now. Is that correct? Over.

193:07:29 Aldrin: That affirmative. VHF Simplex A and we're TR on VHF.

193:07:35 Evans: Roger. Mighty fine. We'll watch it as you are coming on in and let you know when the intelligibility is up and we'll make a voice check with you at that time. [Pause.]

193:07:50 Collins: Houston, Apollo 11. I've been holding here in SCS control, Minimum Deadband, Rate Low with the limit cycle on, just as a matter of curiosity, if you guys wanted some fuel numbers from that.

193:08:07 Evans: 11, Houston. Roger. We copy and we've been figuring it out.

193:08:13 Collins: Okay.

193:08:18 Collins: It's a pleasure to be able to waste gas.

193:08:23 Evans: Roger. That's affirmative.

193:16:17 Collins: Go ahead.

193:16:18 Evans: Roger. The Hornet is on station just far enough off the target point to keep from getting hit. Recovery 1, or the chopper's there; they're on station. And Hawaii Rescue 1 and 2, the C-130s, are within 40 minutes of your target point. Over. [Pause.]

The last big day today, splashdown. Earth is looking mighty big in the window. MET 193 hours, 22 minutes, 56 seconds.

Roughly 29,000 kilometers out, velocity rapidly increasing to now nearly 4.7 m/s.

193:25:08 Evans: Apollo 11, Houston.

193:25:11 Armstrong: Go ahead.

193:25:13 Evans: Roger. Just to get a little downlink here to check out our VHF. I show us about an hour and 37 minutes, approximately, from Entry Interface. Over.

193:25:26 Aldrin: Okay. That's about right.

193:25:28 Evans: Okay. Looks like we're together on that, and I guess we're standing by for you to whip into the entry attitude.

193:25:37 Aldrin: Okay. We've just been taking a couple of last minute pictures. We've finished the EMS entry check, primary water EVAP activation.

193:31:22 Evans: Apollo 11, Houston.

193:31:26 Collins: Go ahead.

193:31:28 Evans: Roger, Mike. We recommend the left VHF antenna for VHF.

193:31:33 Evans: And this is your friendly backup CMP. Have a good trip, and ma... [garbled: 'make sure you'?] remember to come in BEF.
[BEF - Blunt end forward. The correct orientation for the Command Module during re-entry, and another piece of astronaut humour.]

193:31:42 Collins: You better believe. Thank you kindly.

PAO: CapCom that time was Fred Haise, the backup Lunar Module Pilot.

193:31:48 Collins: We can see the Moon passing by the window and it looks what I consider to be a correct size.

193:33:26 Aldrin: Houston, Apollo 11. Like to switch to S-band Omni C. I just did a minute ago, and noticed a loss of signal strength, over.

193:33:34 Evans: Roger, Apollo 11. Go ahead and try it again now that you're in attitude.

193:33:42 Aldrin: Roger. Going Omni C.

Switching to antenna Bravo ahead of CSM separation.

Might be some spotty comm. problems going on right now.

The big event of CM/SM separation coming up in ONE HOUR and FIVE MINUTES at 194:49:13  (16:21 GMT).

We expect some webcast coverage from ABC!

193:47:35 Evans: Apollo 11, Houston.

193:47:39 Armstrong: Go ahead, Ron.

193:47:40 Evans: Roger. Faces are red here. We lost data with you there for a while. Did you do the P52? Over.

193:47:47 Armstrong: That's affirmative, we completed the P52. We'll give you the data from it in just a second. We passed our sextant star check at entry attitude, and right now we're maneuvering to our first horizon check pitch attitude of 298 degrees.

193:48:05 Evans: Roger. Copy that, 11.
