Apollo 8; mankind's most daring mission

In the transcripts for Apollo 9, McDivitt wants to talk to Houston on a private loop. presumeably to discuss Schweickart's space sickness (see images).

How did they set this up? Did they have some sort of encryption?

Thanks for your reply!

Yes, I think I agree with you. Apollo was a lunar program, anything else was just bonus

When people think of the Apollo missions, the three skylab flights are usually not included despite using Apollo hardware. Even their mission names were not Apollo; they were Skylab 1-3.

But what about the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project?
Do you view this as an Apollo mission (the USA portion), or something different?

Now I have 4 missions up and running, thanks to you! A8, A11, A13 & A17  :D

Thanks again for all your help. I will be focusing on A12 and A14 transcripts next, at least the main Technical Air-to-Ground Voice Transcripts. When I'm finished, I'll post them here for you all

Thanks again & take care

Thank you so much for this! In the CSV files, I presume lines ending in T & C represent the main radio traffic? And O is onboard, P PAO etc? This is really great stuff. My plan is to host all Apollo missions for my project, and you are all welcome to follow. I'll link to this site as well.

Yeah, I'm doing some of it from scratch, and as you know it can be a lot of work, this is so helpful, thanks again!

Hello everyone at Apollo in Real Time!

I am a new member here, and I want to say what an amazing website and resource this is.

I run a brand-new facebook & instagram project called Daily Quindar ( +, and its mission is to post a single spacecraft-ground radio snippet every day from the Apollo missions. It is a non-profit endeavor, designed to generate curiosity that comes with reading random transmissions out-of-context.

So far I have the complete transcripts for Apollo 11 & Apollo 13 thanks to the the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal, and I am working on using OCR software in order to convert the raw pdf scans of the remaining missions. However, this is difficult, as the character recognition software isn't always up to task.

My question to you: Would it be possible to obtain from you copies of txt or pdf-files that you have made for Apollo 16/17 or any other mission you have? I would be most appreciative, and would love to link to your site from my project.

Take care
