110:54:11 Carr: Okay, Dick. You're about a minute from LOS. We're satisfied with your surge tank pressures. You - we'll take a little - look in a little while at your S-band - next time you come around the horn. We'll be expecting to see you at 111:40 Over.
110:54:28 Gordon: Roger. 111:40.
Public Affairs Office - "A bolter is an aircraft landing on a carrier that misses the arresting wire and has to go around again. Unofficial touchdown time of Intrepid, 110 hours, 32 minutes, 29 seconds. This was the time the blue touchdown light - lunar contact light - in the LM cabin came on and from first indications, the landing point is about 350 meters due West of where Surveyor is located in the East wall of the crater. 350 meters computes out to about 1,120 feet. We've had Loss Of Signal with Yankee Clipper as it went behind the Moon - around the corner. We'll continue to monitor Air To Ground for further communications with Intrepid."
Public Affairs Office - "This is Apollo Control. The crew of Intrepid are rather quiet at this time, doing some alignments of the Intrepid's inertial measuring unit, taking sitings on stars, other activities associated with powering down the LM, but we'll leave the circuit up in spite of the lack of conversation to catch any discussions that take place between Intrepid and the ground. Some 29 minutes until Yankee Clipper comes over the hill again. This is Apollo Control standing by on live air-ground."
Public Affairs Office - "This is Apollo Control. Lunar Module systems engineer reported to Flight Director, Cliff Charlesworth that at the time of touchdown, some 3.8 percent of descent propellants were still aboard at shutdown. Still standing by on air ground for resumption of communications between Intrepid and Mission Control. 22 minutes, 23 seconds until acquisition by Yankee Clipper."

111:44:01 Carr: Yankee Clipper, Houston. How do you read?
111:44:16 Gordon: Hello, Houston; Yankee Clipper here.
111:44:18 Carr: Roger, Clipper. Reading you weak but clear.
111:44:24 Carr: Clipper, if you'll give us P00 and Accept; we'll start your update. [Long pause.]
"next time you come around the horn. We'll be expecting to see you at 111:40 Over.
110:54:28 Gordon: Roger. 111:40."
"The crew of Intrepid are rather quiet at this time"
"Still standing by on air ground for resumption of communications between Intrepid and Mission Control.
So, what is your interpretation of that?
And this time the Technical Air-To-Ground Transcript doesn't help.

I don't think so, at least if it was me I would not be happy with a bomb between my feet.

A mortar package was designed to lob a set of four explosives from varying distances away from the ALSEP. Finally, an astronaut activated Thumper was used to detonate one of 22 charges to create a small shock.
