Good morning Don, STS-126 & Increment 18 crews!

Now that you've uninstalled the WPA Startup Filter, today you can pack it up for return in the MPLM. In addition, you'll also need to retrieve the empty PWRs from the MPLM for your PWR fills scheduled today. And finally you'll need to transfer the ETVCG hardware from the middeck and MPLM for the ETVCG assembly activity this morning.

You're making good progress...keep up the good work!

The Transfer List Excel file, FD8_Transfer_List_STS126.xls, locations are:

  • Shuttle: C:\OCA-up\transfer (KFX machine)
  • Station: K:\OCA-up\transfer

Transfer Notes

  • Item 241: The original plan for the remaining items in this 1.0 CTB after all the tools were removed, was to stow it in NOD2D5 for Mike and Sandy to unpack during the stage. Based on the specific items you asked about and the locations you provided, it sounds like they have already unpacked them. For your reference, the items you asked about are the following: QD Maintenance Kits, Oil-filled Syringes, Handle Crank Assembly, Right Pedal, and CEVIS Accessories Kit.
  • MPL1P4 RSR: We haven't heard you call down MPLM Resupply items 183, 186, 187, and 190 complete in MPL1P4_A1, B1, & B2; however, since you confirmed that the return items are stowed in these locations, we have marked these resupply items complete.
  • Return Location Sort Pages: In today's uplink, you'll notice we've sent you the first version of the Return Location Sort pages. We do not plan to uplink these each day, unless you'd like us to, as they are for reference only. Expect to see an updated sort in the next couple days. Remember that you can always access the latest sort electronically in the uplinked Transfer List "Return Location" sort tab.
