Can you give status on your ASCS system? Over.

02 30 30

52.6

P

This is Friendship Seven. ASCS started out operating, it would drop into orientation mode in yaw and that would throw the other axes out. It was doing this for a while it would drift off slowly, yaw right and there would be no correction until it went out about 20°. Then it would come rapidly back across and correct itself from a 20° right attitude, would come back across to a left attitude in orientation mode. This continued for a while. I took control, that was right after Guaymas. By the time I had gone over Africa the condition had just reversed, had just reversed. The same thing, only the other direction. Over.

Hello, California Com Tech. Friendship Seven. Loud and clear; how me?

Friendship Seven, California Cap Com. Read you loud and clear, John.

Say again. You came in garbled that time. This is Friendship Seven.

Friendship Seven, this is California Cap Com. We read you loud and clear; how me?

P

Roger. Receiving you much better now, ,Wally. Very good. Fuel is 62-62 [percent], oxygen 62-95 [percent], amps are 25. All systems are still go. I have had some erratic ASCS operation. I caged and uncaged on the night side and it appears to be working fairly well now although I was drifting again in roll a moment ago. It appears to have corrected itself in roll, however, without me caging again now. Over.

CC

Good, John. We have ago all the way on this. I'd like to give you your inverter temperatures. Your fans are 215 [degrees], your ASCS 198 [degrees]. We're not going to do anything about them. Looks real good.

02 59 23

0.6

P

Okay, fine.

02 59 26

4.3

CC

Will you give me your attitudes and we'll check those with ground.

02 59 31

10.6

P

Roger. I'll go back into orbit attitude, drifting toward it at present time. Do You have TM solid now? Over.

02 59 42

Good here.

02 59 43

Roger, have your readings.

John, we check almost right on the button with your attitudes within 2°.

03 00 14

5.9

P

Roger. I appear to have a little bit of drift in the scope yet though:

03 00 19

2.3

CC

Roger. You probably don't have a good reference yet, do you?

03 00 22

9.8

P

It's rather, it's more difficult to pick up drift than I thought it would be. Your best drift really is to look out the window and try and get something moving away from you out the window.

03 00 36

0.9

CC

Roger, I've got you there.

03 00 43

5.4

CC

You understand that your capsule elapsed time is running about a second slow compared to GET.

03 00 51

4.0

P

No, I did not; I was not .aware of that on the elapsed time.

03 00 56

6.3

Roger. This will affect your sequence time. I'll give you 3 Alpha if you're ready To copy.

Roger, 03 11 26.

03 01 35

4.8

CC

You have your end-of-orbit time, and that has not changed and I believe you have Area Golf also.

03 01 41

9.4

P

That's affirmative. I have Golf at 03 plus 00 plus 39 and Hotel at 04 plus 32 plus 40.

03 01 51

7.2

CC

That is correct. You can correct your Area Golf by subtracting one second and subtract one second from Hotel.

03 01 59

6.4

P

Roger. Understand for my retrosequence for end-of-mission is 04 plus 32 plus 39. Is that affirm?

03 02 06


CC

Negative. That should be 04 plus 32 plus 38.

03 02 10

6.3

P

Plus 38. Roger. Does Cape want me to set that into clock at present time? Over.

03 02 17

3.1

Negative, we have not had those instructions. I'll have Arnie check for you.

Roger, understand clocks will be set by command, is that affirm, or do they want.

03 02 56

5.4

That is negative. They, on contact with Al, they will have you change the clock.

Roger, retrograde time is reset to 04 plus 32 plus 38. Over.

03 08 32

25.5

CC

Roger, Seven. We recommend for the third orbit that you use gyros as you desire either normal or free so that in the event prior to retrofire on the third orbit that the scanners and ASCS do not program properly you may use your gyros in the free position for attitude reference. Over.

03 08 58

22.5

P

Roger. This is Friendship Seven. I have a fair, pretty good line-up now on the gyros, I believe. The check that I made on the night side was okay hut they drifted off again, apparently rather rapidly in fact. I got another check on it and they seem to have corrected back pretty good now. I did not have to cage them again. Over.

03 09 22

Roger, Seven, we understand. The only problem is that you may not have enough light time prior to retrofire.
