Bruce then tries to get in touch with the telephone company to troubleshoot and has a great interaction with the operator:

After much painful troubleshooting for half an hour, he calls Pat Collins again, but it's still not working:


Hornet recovery discussing where they will be able to see TLI in the sky from the ship.


At the end "nobody can take a day off...we can't even die" 

Maybe a paper plane?

It's in work. I just got word that the National Science Foundation has awarded a grant to the researchers who did 11 and 13 audio to do the rest of the Apollo missions (160,000 hours). It will take many years, but it's happening.

And here is a list of tape number and what times they correspond to. I calculated this myself by decoding the timecode signal.
Note that these are the times of the restored audio files (completely denoised and defluttered) that are on the real-time website and might not correspond to the raw files on

I'm super late to responding to this thread, apologies. Attached are the track numbers for 13. 11 is very similar.

These correspond to the "channel" numbers on Apollo in Real Time, except 30 is added to the HR2 track numbers, for a total of 60 channels. Several channels have not been exported by NASA, namely the DOD channels.

This is an issue with the digitization unfortunately. Long story.

...due to whitehouse communications setup. I believe he was later sent home, but I can't find the clip that refers to that.

This is wonderful detail. Thanks so much for posting.
