The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson " Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to the audio clip):





(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.

38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.

Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?

38: 10-4

Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.



Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow. As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.

Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".



In my opinion, the words spoken during the radio transmission by F.G. Woodrow is in regard to the pedestrian problem at Market Hall (see above transmission).

(Dallas Police Radio Transmissions audio Source for the clips above can be found here):





When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.


I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.


According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.

Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it upon myself to use my high quality, digitized recordings (which I'd received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll" that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement (when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated, and would have none of it. I was trying to make it easier for both he and the listener(whoever they may be) to be able to hear the transmission with ease. Why? Because "Gknoll" expected the listener to be able to hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" by forcing them to listen to *HIS* poor quality MP3's as well as listen to the transmission played at regular speed and less than a second in length. He didn't want anyone to listen to the MP3's I made, and made it perfectly clear. He claimed that I was "desperate" and that his interpretation of the transmission must be a "threat" to me, otherwise, I wouldn't be making enhanced recordings to prove my point to "get them to sound the way [I] want them to sound. The whole I diea is to make it easy--as easy as possible for listener's to be able to grasp the point, not make it as difficult as possible.

Things escalated and became outrageous with his accusations becoming more and more ridiculous. I stopped wasting my time. No one was responding to anything being "discussed" in the newsgroup regarding the recording other than Tony Marsh, and I thought it was stupid to carry on with the "Gknoll" charade. Things abruptly ended, and faded into oblivion. It came up again just two-three mopnths ago months ago, and here we go again. What it all boils down to is, "Gknoll" doesn't want anyone to be able to decipher what is on the channel 1 recording. If he did want people to be able to hear what he claims is there, he would be elated to have the recording enhanced and so forth in an attempt to help the listener hear what is happening. He doesn't want people to know that he has been challenged by someone who has spent years and years analyzing top quality copies of the recordings, and who discovered something on the recording in 1980 that "altered history" as they say. He insists that I am trying to bully my way around , living off " 15 minutes of fame" ("Fame"??? Really?!! Hardly!!!) that by my not agreeing with him that it's "Murray, keep your mic off" I am being "stubborn", and such. Hogwash! If I was/am wrong, I will admit it.

As far as I am concerned, it's case closed. The transmission is not "Murray keep your mic off" because the last two words of the transmission contain too many syllables. Period. End of story. I will never waste my time with "Gknoll" again.

If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).

Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.

But lets cut to the chase.

Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.

Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.

Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.

You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.

Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down

That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.

The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU

And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered.

(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my

What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!

https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike

http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike


Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".

Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about
this? This, alone, proves that you haven't any idea what you're talking
about!

In my opinion, the words spoken during the radio transmission by F.G. Woodrow is in regard to the pedestrian problem at Market Hall (see above transmission).
Again, it is NOT Officer Woodrow who is speaking these words.

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.
Dear reader, "Gknoll" claims that the word "Mike""mic" contains two
syllables. He said so, above. This proves he doesn't know what he is
talking about.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Here is the audio clip that steve posted. It completely and totally
supports my interpretation of the words as "Murray, keep your mic off"
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1TIa7EkAi5leDBYTXVjSk1CTlU/view
No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"
says. Why? That link is not true representation of what is on the
recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of
the better quality copy of the channel 1 recording:

http://youtu.be/dsHga-zQjt8

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.
Post by g***@gmail.com
upon myself to use my high quality, digitized recordings (which I'd
received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement
(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,
and would have none of it. I was trying to
I did not become "irritated". As I just said, I welcomed his "high
quality" audios. They actually supported my case to such a degree that I
started using Steves audio to prove my case. Here his steves audio once
again.

make it easier for both he and the listener(whoever they may be) to be
able to hear the transmission with ease. Why? Because "Gknoll" expected
the listener to be able to hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" by
forcing them to listen to *HIS* poor quality MP3's as well as listen to
the transmission played at regular speed and less than a second in length.
He didn't want anyone to
Steve is making stuff up here. I did not force anyone to do anything. When
steve said he wanted a higher quality recording and he produced his own,
I used HID RECORDING because IT DOES NOT MATTER what recording you use, the
conclusion is always the same, the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic
off".
Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from
your own files, expecting the listener to grasp what you were saying by
forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you
provided for them to listen to. That is forcing people to listen to
something by expecting them to listen to it. Wait. You tried to tell me
that the word "Mike/"mic" contains two syllables when it is one syllable,
so I have to provide the definition of the word "force" because clearly
you don't know the definition of the word.:

listen to the MP3's I made, and made it perfectly clear. He claimed that I
was "desperate" and that his interpretation of the transmission must be a
"threat" to me, otherwise, I wouldn't be making enhanced recordings to
prove my point to "get them to sound the way [I] want them to sound. The
whole I diea is to make it easy--as easy as possible for listener's to be

an attempt to help the listener hear what is happening. He doesn't want
people to know that he has been challenged by someone who has spent years
and years analyzing top quality copies of the recordings, and who
discovered something on the recording in 1980 that "altered history" as
they say. He insists that I am trying to bully my way around , living off
" 15 minutes of fame" ("Fame"??? Really?!! Hardly!!!) that by my not
agreeing with him that it's "Murray, keep your mic off" I am being

You are trying to bully your way around. Just look at this post that you

There you go again. I don't have to save anything regarding myself! You
just said to me and anyone who reads this thread, that you don't have a

As far as I am concerned, it's case closed. The transmission is not "Murray keep your mic off" because the last two words of the transmission contain too many syllables. Period. End of story. I will never waste my time with "Gknoll" again.
You are welcome to believe what ever you want, but you lost. The words are
indeed, "Murray keep your mic off".

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.
But lets cut to the chase.
Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.
We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.

Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.

Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
Your kidding right?

Since the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off" there is no doubt
that someone told him to keep his mic off.

Yes there were two dispatchers on duty, but Murray Jackson had just come
on duty. His shift started at 12:28 (dispatcher time) And the "Murray keep
your mic off" broadcast was given soon after his shift started.

And its not a theory, it is a fact. All someone has to do is listen to the
recording.
Post by Steve Barber
All I did was listen to the

recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.
I am used to be challenged. You are not. That is why you cannot let this
go. Get over it, you lost.

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to
Post by Steve Barber
http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
First, it is not Officer Woodrow. Any unbiased person can tell that the
person speaking the phrase "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
person who spoke the phrase immediately preceding it.

Not only do you agree that the Dispatcher is the one who says "alright",
but you agree that it is Murray Jackson who is responding. Which makes
complete sense becasue the tranmission was directed to Murray Jackson.
Again, the transmission was "MURRAY, keep your mic off" and he responds
"allright"

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.

Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!

You are a little late to the party on this one. I already pointed out in
our other thread where you brought this up.
Post by Steve Barber
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".
No the last word is not "Hall". There is no way anyone can turn it into
"Hall" unless they change the pitch.

And it is obvious that the first word, contains the "my" syllable as in
"mic". It is obvious that it is not the "mar" syllable.

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Actually, you are the one who started to count speech sounds as syllables.
You have been saying all along that the last two words contain three
syllables when in fact they do not. You misused the word syllable. There
are three speech sounds and if you were going to be technically correct
you should have said the last two words have 3 speech sounds and two
syllables. Using the new strict definition of for syllables that you now
want to use, there are two syllables and three speech sounds in the last
two words, using your audios.

This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question.

as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.
Yes really. I have been using an audio that you created for the last year.

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"
says. Why? That link is not true representation of what is on the
recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.
You are being ridiculous.

The first syllable of the first word is "my". It is not "mar". And there
is no way that you can change the speed and keep the pitch constant and
turn the "my" syllable into the "mar" syllable.

Now, if you are desperate, and do not keep the pitch constant as you
change speed, you can make the "my" syllable sound any way you want it to
sound.

Not only that, you are proving that there are only two syllable in those
last two words, but there are three speech sounds.

received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement

subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,

Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from

forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you
provided for them to listen to. That is forcing people to listen to

Here is your audio, and despite what you now say, it is good high quality
audio and it shows the truth of the matter.

BTW,when you made this audio, you titled this audio "six_syllables",
because there are six syllables in the broadcast. There are six syllables.

Dear reader, as you can see, I don't have to "cover my butt" for any
reason. It is all in the syllables, and "Gknoll" knows it.
First of all, it is not all in the syllables but Steve would like you
think that it is. He is just trying to save face.

But even then, he has not shown there are 3 syllables in those last two
words. Even his most recent attempt clearly shows that there are only two
syllables in those last two words.

discovered something on the recording in 1980 that "altered history" as

"Mike"/"mic" contains but ONE syllable, not two, like you said above! I
just proved that you are completely out in left field regarding this
entire subject.
Steve the only thing that you are proving is that you are desperate to
find something to hang on to. When you initially said there were three
syllables I went along with it but as this is showing I should not have.
You were the one who first misused the word.

You own work is showing that there are not three "syllables" in the last
two words. So if I misused the word then so did you. But you are desperate

Your wrong. And the words are not "Market Hall". All you have done is try
to alter the speech to make sound the way you want it sound.

As I said before, the first syllable of the first word is "my". There is

As far as I am concerned, it's case closed. The transmission is not "Murray keep your mic off" because the last two words of the transmission contain too many syllables. Period. End of story. I will never waste my time with "Gknoll" again.

indeed, "Murray keep your mic off".

he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.

Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
Almost everything you just said is false...

First of all it is "Murray keep your mic off", the audio is my best
evidence for that.

Second, the last two words DO NOT have three syllables. They have three
speech sounds but only two of them are syllables.'

Third, the last two words are not "market hall" and cannot ever be "market
hall" because the first syllable of the first word is "my" not "mar".

Ok, so the words from the Decker transmission are exactly where you said
they are , the problem is, you did not specify where they are. That is my
question to you. So stop bluffing, if you were going to get into that you
would get into it and not blabbing about why you are not getting into it.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
Your kidding right?
Since the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off" there is no doubt
that someone told him to keep his mic off.
Yes there were two dispatchers on duty, but Murray Jackson had just come
on duty. His shift started at 12:28 (dispatcher time) And the "Murray keep
your mic off" broadcast was given soon after his shift started.
And its not a theory, it is a fact. All someone has to do is listen to the
recording.

All I did was listen to the

recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep

"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.
I am used to be challenged. You are not. That is why you cannot let this

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to
Post by Steve Barber
http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
First, it is not Officer Woodrow. Any unbiased person can tell that the
person speaking the phrase "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
person who spoke the phrase immediately preceding it.
Not only do you agree that the Dispatcher is the one who says "alright",
but you agree that it is Murray Jackson who is responding. Which makes
complete sense becasue the tranmission was directed to Murray Jackson.
Again, the transmission was "MURRAY, keep your mic off" and he responds
"allright"

Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!

Post by Steve Barber
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".
No the last word is not "Hall". There is no way anyone can turn it into
"Hall" unless they change the pitch.
And it is obvious that the first word, contains the "my" syllable as in
"mic". It is obvious that it is not the "mar" syllable.

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Actually, you are the one who started to count speech sounds as syllables.
You have been saying all along that the last two words contain three
syllables when in fact they do not. You misused the word syllable. There
are three speech sounds and if you were going to be technically correct
you should have said the last two words have 3 speech sounds and two
syllables. Using the new strict definition of for syllables that you now
want to use, there are two syllables and three speech sounds in the last
two words, using your audios.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about

in the last two words, not three that you have been claiming all the time.
Using the strict definition that you now want to use, you have not shown
that there are 3 syllable. You have not even come close to showing that.
You think the words are "mar-ket hall", three syllables but you have not

syllable into the "mar" syllable.

I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.
Yes really. I have been using an audio that you created for the last year.

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"
says. Why? That link is not true representation of what is on the
recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.
You are being ridiculous.
The first syllable of the first word is "my". It is not "mar". And there
is no way that you can change the speed and keep the pitch constant and
turn the "my" syllable into the "mar" syllable.
Now, if you are desperate, and do not keep the pitch constant as you
change speed, you can make the "my" syllable sound any way you want it to
sound.
Not only that, you are proving that there are only two syllable in those
last two words, but there are three speech sounds.

received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement
(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,

Dear reader, as you can see, I don't have to "cover my butt" for any

First of all, it is not all in the syllables but Steve would like you

But even then, he has not shown there are 3 syllables in those last two
words. Even his most recent attempt clearly shows that there are only two

just proved that you are completely out in left field regarding this
entire subject.
Steve the only thing that you are proving is that you are desperate to
find something to hang on to. When you initially said there were three
syllables I went along with it but as this is showing I should not have.
You were the one who first misused the word.
You own work is showing that there are not three "syllables" in the last

Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
Almost everything you just said is false...
First of all it is "Murray keep your mic off", the audio is my best
evidence for that.
Second, the last two words DO NOT have three syllables. They have three
speech sounds but only two of them are syllables.'
Third, the last two words are not "market hall" and cannot ever be "market
hall" because the first syllable of the first word is "my" not "mar".
Ok, so the words from the Decker transmission are exactly where you said
they are , the problem is, you did not specify where they are. That is my
question to you. So stop bluffing, if you were going to get into that you
would get into it and not blabbing about why you are not getting into it.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
Your kidding right?
Since the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off" there is no doubt
that someone told him to keep his mic off.
Yes there were two dispatchers on duty, but Murray Jackson had just come
on duty. His shift started at 12:28 (dispatcher time) And the "Murray keep
your mic off" broadcast was given soon after his shift started.
And its not a theory, it is a fact. All someone has to do is listen to the
recording.

All I did was listen to the

recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep

"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.
I am used to be challenged. You are not. That is why you cannot let this

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to
Post by Steve Barber
http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
First, it is not Officer Woodrow. Any unbiased person can tell that the
person speaking the phrase "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
person who spoke the phrase immediately preceding it.
Not only do you agree that the Dispatcher is the one who says "alright",
but you agree that it is Murray Jackson who is responding. Which makes
complete sense becasue the tranmission was directed to Murray Jackson.
Again, the transmission was "MURRAY, keep your mic off" and he responds
"allright"

Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!

Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".
No the last word is not "Hall". There is no way anyone can turn it into
"Hall" unless they change the pitch.
And it is obvious that the first word, contains the "my" syllable as in
"mic". It is obvious that it is not the "mar" syllable.

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Actually, you are the one who started to count speech sounds as syllables.
You have been saying all along that the last two words contain three
syllables when in fact they do not. You misused the word syllable. There
are three speech sounds and if you were going to be technically correct
you should have said the last two words have 3 speech sounds and two
syllables. Using the new strict definition of for syllables that you now
want to use, there are two syllables and three speech sounds in the last
two words, using your audios.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about
this? This, alone, proves that you haven't any idea what you're talking

definition for syllable, then all you showed was there are two syllables
in the last two words, not three that you have been claiming all the time.
Using the strict definition that you now want to use, you have not shown
that there are 3 syllable. You have not even come close to showing that.
You think the words are "mar-ket hall", three syllables but you have not
shown that. Not even close in all the videos you have produced. And you
can't show it because you cannot keep the pitch the same and turn the "my"
syllable into the "mar" syllable.

I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.
Yes really. I have been using an audio that you created for the last year.

Here is the audio clip that steve posted. It completely and totally
supports my interpretation of the words as "Murray, keep your mic off"

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"
says. Why? That link is not true representation of what is on the
recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.
You are being ridiculous.
The first syllable of the first word is "my". It is not "mar". And there
is no way that you can change the speed and keep the pitch constant and
turn the "my" syllable into the "mar" syllable.
Now, if you are desperate, and do not keep the pitch constant as you
change speed, you can make the "my" syllable sound any way you want it to
sound.
Not only that, you are proving that there are only two syllable in those
last two words, but there are three speech sounds.

upon myself to use my high quality, digitized recordings (which I'd
received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement
(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,
and would have none of it. I was trying to
I did not become "irritated". As I just said, I welcomed his "high

Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from
your own files, expecting the listener to grasp what you were saying by
forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you
provided for them to listen to. That is forcing people to listen to
something by expecting them to listen to it. Wait. You tried to tell me
that the word "Mike/"mic" contains two syllables when it is one syllable,

You are being ridiculous. When you posted your superior quality audio, I

you still complain. In fact, you are now telling people to disregard the

Here is your audio, and despite what you now say, it is good high quality
audio and it shows the truth of the matter.
BTW,when you made this audio, you titled this audio "six_syllables",
because there are six syllables in the broadcast. There are six syllables.

Steve is trying to cover his butt right now. He got caught in a mistake. I
warned him several time that he should drop it because he was barking up

Dear reader, as you can see, I don't have to "cover my butt" for any
reason. It is all in the syllables, and "Gknoll" knows it.
First of all, it is not all in the syllables but Steve would like you
think that it is. He is just trying to save face.
But even then, he has not shown there are 3 syllables in those last two
words. Even his most recent attempt clearly shows that there are only two
syllables in those last two words.
Here is the audio clip that steve does not want you to hear. He made this
clip six months ago in his first attempt to prove me wrong. But it didn't,

Things did not abruptly end. They lingered because steve could not let it

Nope. "Garbled, indecipherable speech leading up to the words "Market

No, it is not indecipherable speech. All one has to do is listen to it.

there, he would be elated to have the recording enhanced and so forth in
an attempt to help the listener hear what is happening. He doesn't want
people to know that he has been challenged by someone who has spent years
and years analyzing top quality copies of the recordings, and who
discovered something on the recording in 1980 that "altered history" as
they say. He insists that I am trying to bully my way around , living off
" 15 minutes of fame" ("Fame"??? Really?!! Hardly!!!) that by my not
agreeing with him that it's "Murray, keep your mic off" I am being
"stubborn", and such. Hogwash! If I was/am wrong, I will admit it.
You are trying to bully your way around. Just look at this post that you
have written. You are trying to save face at my expense I might add.
There you go again. I don't have to save anything regarding myself! You
just said to me and anyone who reads this thread, that you don't have a
grasp on any of this because you don't even know that the word
"Mike"/"mic" contains but ONE syllable, not two, like you said above! I
just proved that you are completely out in left field regarding this
entire subject.
Steve the only thing that you are proving is that you are desperate to
find something to hang on to. When you initially said there were three
syllables I went along with it but as this is showing I should not have.
You were the one who first misused the word.
You own work is showing that there are not three "syllables" in the last
two words. So if I misused the word then so did you. But you are desperate
to find something to hang your hat on. So you are doing what desperate

two words "Market Hall" and you, sir don't know three syllables from two!

You are certain you are not wrong huh? You are 1 billion gazillion percent
sure you are not wrong? That sounds like a desperate man to me steve. A
silly desperate man at that.
Your wrong. And the words are not "Market Hall". All you have done is try
to alter the speech to make sound the way you want it sound.
As I said before, the first syllable of the first word is "my". There is
no doubt about that. It is not "mar" and you need it to "mar".

As far as I am concerned, it's case closed. The transmission is not "Murray keep your mic off" because the last two words of the transmission contain too many syllables. Period. End of story. I will never waste my time with "Gknoll" again.
You are welcome to believe what ever you want, but you lost. The words are
indeed, "Murray keep your mic off".
That's real large of you to say, however, this isn't a game to me,
although clearly is to you because you keep saying that I "lost".
I say you lost because you lost. And you can say its not a game to you but

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.
But lets cut to the chase.
Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.
We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.

Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.
Well, if its not good for me then what are you waiting for.
Post by Steve Barber
Post by g***@gmail.com
Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
Almost everything you just said is false...
First of all it is "Murray keep your mic off", the audio is my best
evidence for that.
Second, the last two words DO NOT have three syllables. They have three
speech sounds but only two of them are syllables.'
Third, the last two words are not "market hall" and cannot ever be "market
hall" because the first syllable of the first word is "my" not "mar".
Ok, so the words from the Decker transmission are exactly where you said
they are , the problem is, you did not specify where they are. That is my
question to you. So stop bluffing, if you were going to get into that you
would get into it and not blabbing about why you are not getting into it.
LOL!!!!!
I love using your own evidence to support my case...

Here is your latest attempt...the one that you say is better than all
the rest. The last two words are "mic off", two syllables.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
Your kidding right?
Since the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off" there is no doubt
that someone told him to keep his mic off.
Doesn't mean that the unit calling in was right.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Yes there were two dispatchers on duty, but Murray Jackson had just come
on duty. His shift started at 12:28 (dispatcher time) And the "Murray keep
your mic off" broadcast was given soon after his shift started.
And its not a theory, it is a fact. All someone has to do is listen to the
recording.
No. Not everything the units called in has to be true.

One unit called in that he had the witness (Euins) on his cycle and the
dispatcher said he had the SUSPECT on his bike.

Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to
Post by Steve Barber

If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
First, it is not Officer Woodrow. Any unbiased person can tell that the
person speaking the phrase "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
person who spoke the phrase immediately preceding it.
Not only do you agree that the Dispatcher is the one who says "alright",
but you agree that it is Murray Jackson who is responding. Which makes
complete sense becasue the tranmission was directed to Murray Jackson.
Again, the transmission was "MURRAY, keep your mic off" and he responds
"allright"

Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.

Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.

Officer Woodrow when Officer Woodrow reports the problem at Market Hall.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!

You are a little late to the party on this one. I already pointed out in
our other thread where you brought this up.
Post by Steve Barber
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".
No the last word is not "Hall". There is no way anyone can turn it into
"Hall" unless they change the pitch.
And it is obvious that the first word, contains the "my" syllable as in
"mic". It is obvious that it is not the "mar" syllable.

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Actually, you are the one who started to count speech sounds as syllables.
You have been saying all along that the last two words contain three
syllables when in fact they do not. You misused the word syllable. There
are three speech sounds and if you were going to be technically correct
you should have said the last two words have 3 speech sounds and two
syllables. Using the new strict definition of for syllables that you now
want to use, there are two syllables and three speech sounds in the last
two words, using your audios.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about
this? This, alone, proves that you haven't any idea what you're talking
about!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Again, you are the one who initially misused the word "syllable". And your
argument is ridiculous because, if we hold you to your new found
definition for syllable, then all you showed was there are two syllables
in the last two words, not three that you have been claiming all the time.
Using the strict definition that you now want to use, you have not shown
that there are 3 syllable. You have not even come close to showing that.
You think the words are "mar-ket hall", three syllables but you have not
shown that. Not even close in all the videos you have produced. And you
can't show it because you cannot keep the pitch the same and turn the "my"
syllable into the "mar" syllable.

In my opinion, the words spoken during the radio transmission by F.G. Woodrow is in regard to the pedestrian problem at Market Hall (see above transmission).

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.
Dear reader, "Gknoll" claims that the word "Mike""mic" contains two
syllables. He said so, above. This proves he doesn't know what he is
talking about.

http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Steve you are the one who said there were 3 syllables in the last two
words. But as you now admit, there are not 3 syllables in those last two
words. There are only two syllables in the last two words. And if there
are only two syllables, then again, you lose.
Again, you are the one who initially misused the word "syllable". And your
argument is ridiculous because, if we hold you to your new found
definition for syllable, then all you showed was there are two syllables
in the last two words, not three that you have been claiming all the time.
Using the strict definition that you now want to use, you have not shown
that there are 3 syllable. You have not even come close to showing that.
You think the words are "mar-ket hall", three syllables but you have not
shown that. Not even close in all the videos you have produced. And you
can't show it because you cannot keep the pitch the same and turn the "my"
syllable into the "mar" syllable.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.
Yes really. I have been using an audio that you created for the last year.

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"
says. Why? That link is not true representation of what is on the
recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.
You are being ridiculous.
The first syllable of the first word is "my". It is not "mar". And there
is no way that you can change the speed and keep the pitch constant and
turn the "my" syllable into the "mar" syllable.
Now, if you are desperate, and do not keep the pitch constant as you
change speed, you can make the "my" syllable sound any way you want it to
sound.
Not only that, you are proving that there are only two syllable in those
last two words, but there are three speech sounds.

received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"

First of all, it is not all in the syllables but Steve would like you

Steve the only thing that you are proving is that you are desperate to
find something to hang on to. When you initially said there were three
syllables I went along with it but as this is showing I should not have.
You were the one who first misused the word.

he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to

Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
Almost everything you just said is false...
First of all it is "Murray keep your mic off", the audio is my best
evidence for that.
Second, the last two words DO NOT have three syllables. They have three
speech sounds but only two of them are syllables.'
Third, the last two words are not "market hall" and cannot ever be "market
hall" because the first syllable of the first word is "my" not "mar".
Ok, so the words from the Decker transmission are exactly where you said
they are , the problem is, you did not specify where they are. That is my
question to you. So stop bluffing, if you were going to get into that you
would get into it and not blabbing about why you are not getting into it.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
Yes, but you have to explain in detail how the dispatch sytem works.
Post by Steve Barber
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
Maybe he thinks they were fighting amongst themselves over who was in
control.

as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a

If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
Do you think it was Murray Jackson who said, "All right"?
Do you stipulate that it was Unit 38 which called in?
Why does that tape say, "38....38"?
Can you understand his first 2 words?
What do YOU think those words are EXACTLY?

being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that

Post by Steve Barber
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
Yes, but first you have to explain to him how the heterodynes are
created. He hasn't read the literature.

Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".

Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

an attempt to help the listener hear what is happening. He doesn't want
people to know that he has been challenged by someone who has spent years
and years analyzing top quality copies of the recordings, and who
discovered something on the recording in 1980 that "altered history" as
they say. He insists that I am trying to bully my way around , living off
" 15 minutes of fame" ("Fame"??? Really?!! Hardly!!!) that by my not
agreeing with him that it's "Murray, keep your mic off" I am being
"stubborn", and such. Hogwash! If I was/am wrong, I will admit it.
You are trying to bully your way around. Just look at this post that you

There you go again. I don't have to save anything regarding myself! You
just said to me and anyone who reads this thread, that you don't have a

entire subject.

When I am wrong, I admit it, however I am 1 billion, gazillion percent

two words "Market Hall" and you, sir don't know three syllables from two!
You've made this perfectly clear!

As far as I am concerned, it's case closed. The transmission is not "Murray keep your mic off" because the last two words of the transmission contain too many syllables. Period. End of story. I will never waste my time with "Gknoll" again.
You are welcome to believe what ever you want, but you lost. The words are
indeed, "Murray keep your mic off".

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.
But lets cut to the chase.
Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.
We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the
Post by g***@gmail.com
recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to
Post by Steve Barber
http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
Still the wrong link because it still cuts off before Murray responds
"allright".
Post by Steve Barber
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
I see you are changing your story again. Now you are saying that the
person saying the words "murray keep your mic off" was an officer who was
responding to Woodrow. Before I refuted you, you said that the phrase was
made by Woodrow. But anyone listening to the channel could tell it was not
Woodrow. But still you have it wrong, because the person is not responding
to Woodrow, it is clear that the person is directing his broadcast to
Murray Jackson. He says "Murray, keep your mic off" and a few seconds
later Murray Jackson responds "alright".

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.
http://youtu.be/PTGn6aeRmNk
Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.
Again, Correct. (see above) My error. I posted the wrong link. It was
supposed to be the audio MP3 of entire exchange between dispatch and
Officer Woodrow when Officer Woodrow reports the problem at Market Hall.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the

recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to

http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
Still the wrong link because it still cuts off before Murray responds
"allright".
Post by Steve Barber
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
I see you are changing your story again. Now you are saying that the
person saying the words "murray keep your mic off" was an officer who was
responding to Woodrow. Before I refuted you, you said that the phrase was
made by Woodrow. But anyone listening to the channel could tell it was not
Woodrow. But still you have it wrong, because the person is not responding
to Woodrow, it is clear that the person is directing his broadcast to
Murray Jackson. He says "Murray, keep your mic off" and a few seconds
later Murray Jackson responds "alright".

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.
http://youtu.be/PTGn6aeRmNk
Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.
Again, Correct. (see above) My error. I posted the wrong link. It was
supposed to be the audio MP3 of entire exchange between dispatch and
Officer Woodrow when Officer Woodrow reports the problem at Market Hall.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about
this? This, alone, proves that you haven't any idea what you're talking

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.
Dear reader, "Gknoll" claims that the word "Mike""mic" contains two

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

supports my interpretation of the words as "Murray, keep your mic off"

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"
says. Why? That link is not true representation of what is on the
recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.
Post by g***@gmail.com
upon myself to use my high quality, digitized recordings (which I'd
received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement
(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,
and would have none of it. I was trying to
I did not become "irritated". As I just said, I welcomed his "high

the listener to be able to hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" by
forcing them to listen to *HIS* poor quality MP3's as well as listen to
the transmission played at regular speed and less than a second in length.
He didn't want anyone to
Steve is making stuff up here. I did not force anyone to do anything. When
steve said he wanted a higher quality recording and he produced his own,
I used HID RECORDING because IT DOES NOT MATTER what recording you use, the
conclusion is always the same, the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic
off".
Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from
your own files, expecting the listener to grasp what you were saying by
forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you
provided for them to listen to. That is forcing people to listen to

Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson

That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange

dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
I see you are changing your story again. Now you are saying that the
person saying the words "murray keep your mic off" was an officer who was
responding to Woodrow. Before I refuted you, you said that the phrase was
made by Woodrow. But anyone listening to the channel could tell it was not
Woodrow. But still you have it wrong, because the person is not responding

Murray Jackson. He says "Murray, keep your mic off" and a few seconds

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my

What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!

Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in

gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.

Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".

Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"

recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has

received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did

(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,

Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from
your own files, expecting the listener to grasp what you were saying by
forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you

off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.

indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".

Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,

You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has

quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is

received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did

(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,

Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from

and years analyzing top quality copies of the recordings, and who
discovered something on the recording in 1980 that "altered history" as
they say. He insists that I am trying to bully my way around , living off
" 15 minutes of fame" ("Fame"??? Really?!! Hardly!!!) that by my not

As far as I am concerned, it's case closed. The transmission is not "Murray keep your mic off" because the last two words of the transmission contain too many syllables. Period. End of story. I will never waste my time with "Gknoll" again.
You are welcome to believe what ever you want, but you lost. The words are

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.
But lets cut to the chase.
Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.
We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
We are going to have to agree to disagree with one another on this whole
thing.
Well, lets move on to the three fragments you hear before the "hold"
crosstalk.
Why should I help you with anything? You won't believe whatever I say.
You have proven this over the past year. I didn't have anyone helping me
with everything I found on channel 1. I did the work all alone, with
multi- generation copies of the police recordings, a hand held cassette
recorder and a multi generation recording made on a piece of laminated
cardboard played on cheap audio turntable, receiver and speakers. You
think you're right and everyone else is wrong, so, let's see what you're
made of. You're on your own.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the
Post by g***@gmail.com
recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to
Post by Steve Barber

If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
Still the wrong link because it still cuts off before Murray responds
"allright".
Post by Steve Barber
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
I see you are changing your story again. Now you are saying that the
person saying the words "murray keep your mic off" was an officer who was
responding to Woodrow. Before I refuted you, you said that the phrase was
made by Woodrow. But anyone listening to the channel could tell it was not
Woodrow. But still you have it wrong, because the person is not responding
to Woodrow, it is clear that the person is directing his broadcast to
Murray Jackson. He says "Murray, keep your mic off" and a few seconds
later Murray Jackson responds "alright".

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.

upon myself to use my high quality, digitized recordings (which I'd
received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement

subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,

Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from

As far as I am concerned, it's case closed. The transmission is not "Murray keep your mic off" because the last two words of the transmission contain too many syllables. Period. End of story. I will never waste my time with "Gknoll" again.
You are welcome to believe what ever you want, but you lost. The words are

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.
But lets cut to the chase.
Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.
We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
We are going to have to agree to disagree with one another on this whole
thing.
Well, lets move on to the three fragments you hear before the "hold"
crosstalk.
Why should I help you with anything? You won't believe whatever I say.
You have proven this over the past year. I didn't have anyone helping me
with everything I found on channel 1. I did the work all alone, with
multi- generation copies of the police recordings, a hand held cassette
recorder and a multi generation recording made on a piece of laminated
cardboard played on cheap audio turntable, receiver and speakers. You
think you're right and everyone else is wrong, so, let's see what you're
made of. You're on your own.
You are the one who said that we have to agree to disagree on the
"Murray, keep your mic off" thing. I accept that.

Speaking of someone not believing what the other person is saying, that
is what you have done. You have attacked me since the first moment I
offered my opinion on this.

I predicted in a previous post that you were just using the "Murray,
keep you mic off" argument as a way for you to avoid having to discuss
the three fragments you said you hear before the "hold" crosstalk. You
responded to that by telling me that "we will get to that when we settle
this (the "Murray" thing). Well, we have settled the Murray issue, we
agree to disagree, so lets get to it.

If you do not tell everyone where you hear these phrases you cannot
claim credit for their discovery, if, at some later time, someone else
does show where those phrases are located on Channel 1.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the
Post by g***@gmail.com
recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to

If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
Still the wrong link because it still cuts off before Murray responds
"allright".
Post by Steve Barber
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
I see you are changing your story again. Now you are saying that the
person saying the words "murray keep your mic off" was an officer who was
responding to Woodrow. Before I refuted you, you said that the phrase was
made by Woodrow. But anyone listening to the channel could tell it was not
Woodrow. But still you have it wrong, because the person is not responding
to Woodrow, it is clear that the person is directing his broadcast to
Murray Jackson. He says "Murray, keep your mic off" and a few seconds
later Murray Jackson responds "alright".

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.
http://youtu.be/PTGn6aeRmNk
Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.
Again, Correct. (see above) My error. I posted the wrong link. It was
supposed to be the audio MP3 of entire exchange between dispatch and
Officer Woodrow when Officer Woodrow reports the problem at Market Hall.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

recording. If he did want people to be able to hear what he claims is
there, he would be elated to have the recording enhanced and so forth in
an attempt to help the listener hear what is happening. He doesn't want
people to know that he has been challenged by someone who has spent years
and years analyzing top quality copies of the recordings, and who
discovered something on the recording in 1980 that "altered history" as
they say. He insists that I am trying to bully my way around , living off
" 15 minutes of fame" ("Fame"??? Really?!! Hardly!!!) that by my not
agreeing with him that it's "Murray, keep your mic off" I am being
"stubborn", and such. Hogwash! If I was/am wrong, I will admit it.
You are trying to bully your way around. Just look at this post that you
have written. You are trying to save face at my expense I might add.
There you go again. I don't have to save anything regarding myself! You
just said to me and anyone who reads this thread, that you don't have a
grasp on any of this because you don't even know that the word
"Mike"/"mic" contains but ONE syllable, not two, like you said above! I
just proved that you are completely out in left field regarding this
entire subject.

This case proves, Steve, that when you are wrong YOU WILL NOT ADMIT IT.
CASE CLOSED.
When I am wrong, I admit it, however I am 1 billion, gazillion percent
certain that I am not wrong, that there are three syllables forming the
two words "Market Hall" and you, sir don't know three syllables from two!
You've made this perfectly clear!

As far as I am concerned, it's case closed. The transmission is not "Murray keep your mic off" because the last two words of the transmission contain too many syllables. Period. End of story. I will never waste my time with "Gknoll" again.
You are welcome to believe what ever you want, but you lost. The words are
indeed, "Murray keep your mic off".
That's real large of you to say, however, this isn't a game to me,
although clearly is to you because you keep saying that I "lost".

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.
But lets cut to the chase.
Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.
We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
We are going to have to agree to disagree with one another on this whole
thing.
Well, lets move on to the three fragments you hear before the "hold"
crosstalk.
Why should I help you with anything? You won't believe whatever I say.
You have proven this over the past year. I didn't have anyone helping me
with everything I found on channel 1. I did the work all alone, with
multi- generation copies of the police recordings, a hand held cassette
recorder and a multi generation recording made on a piece of laminated
cardboard played on cheap audio turntable, receiver and speakers. You
think you're right and everyone else is wrong, so, let's see what you're
made of. You're on your own.
You are the one who said that we have to agree to disagree on the
"Murray, keep your mic off" thing. I accept that.
Speaking of someone not believing what the other person is saying, that
is what you have done. You have attacked me since the first moment I
offered my opinion on this.
I predicted in a previous post that you were just using the "Murray,
keep you mic off" argument as a way for you to avoid having to discuss
the three fragments you said you hear before the "hold" crosstalk. You
responded to that by telling me that "we will get to that when we settle
this (the "Murray" thing). Well, we have settled the Murray issue, we
agree to disagree, so lets get to it.
If you do not tell everyone where you hear these phrases you cannot
claim credit for their discovery, if, at some later time, someone else
does show where those phrases are located on Channel 1.
You really think so? I don't. And if you are trying to force me into
helping you by saying things like this, you can forget it. Also, You'd
better keep in mind that I was corresponding heavily with the scientists
on the Ramsey committee both by phone and letter. Therefore if I told
them about the location of other words from Decker's ch 2 transmission
"men available" and "in an effort..." and it is already on official record
that I did tell the Ramsey panel, the DOJ, the FBI, Jim Bowles, et.al.
about the words and where they're located on the recording, this "someone
else" is going to be in for real ridicule when it is revealed that I
already informed all these government organizations who contacted me about
this. If you want to take a risk, go for it! The fact that I do not want
to commit myself to saying yes or no to your question must really bug you.
This entire fiasco is nothing more than a game to you. Like I
said,though, you're on your own.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the
Post by g***@gmail.com
recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to

http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
Still the wrong link because it still cuts off before Murray responds
"allright".
Post by Steve Barber
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
I see you are changing your story again. Now you are saying that the
person saying the words "murray keep your mic off" was an officer who was
responding to Woodrow. Before I refuted you, you said that the phrase was
made by Woodrow. But anyone listening to the channel could tell it was not
Woodrow. But still you have it wrong, because the person is not responding
to Woodrow, it is clear that the person is directing his broadcast to
Murray Jackson. He says "Murray, keep your mic off" and a few seconds
later Murray Jackson responds "alright".

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.
http://youtu.be/PTGn6aeRmNk
Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.
Again, Correct. (see above) My error. I posted the wrong link. It was
supposed to be the audio MP3 of entire exchange between dispatch and
Officer Woodrow when Officer Woodrow reports the problem at Market Hall.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about
this? This, alone, proves that you haven't any idea what you're talking

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.
Dear reader, "Gknoll" claims that the word "Mike""mic" contains two

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"

recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.

upon myself to use my high quality, digitized recordings (which I'd
received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement
(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,
and would have none of it. I was trying to

the transmission played at regular speed and less than a second in length.

off".
Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from
your own files, expecting the listener to grasp what you were saying by
forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you
provided for them to listen to. That is forcing people to listen to

Why should I help you with anything? You won't believe whatever I say.
You have proven this over the past year. I didn't have anyone helping me

recorder and a multi generation recording made on a piece of laminated
cardboard played on cheap audio turntable, receiver and speakers. You

made of. You're on your own.
You are the one who said that we have to agree to disagree on the
"Murray, keep your mic off" thing. I accept that.
Speaking of someone not believing what the other person is saying, that
is what you have done. You have attacked me since the first moment I
offered my opinion on this.
I predicted in a previous post that you were just using the "Murray,
keep you mic off" argument as a way for you to avoid having to discuss
the three fragments you said you hear before the "hold" crosstalk. You
responded to that by telling me that "we will get to that when we settle
this (the "Murray" thing). Well, we have settled the Murray issue, we
agree to disagree, so lets get to it.
If you do not tell everyone where you hear these phrases you cannot
claim credit for their discovery, if, at some later time, someone else
does show where those phrases are located on Channel 1.
You really think so? I don't. And if you are trying to force me into
helping you by saying things like this, you can forget it. Also, You'd
better keep in mind that I was corresponding heavily with the scientists
on the Ramsey committee both by phone and letter. Therefore if I told
them about the location of other words from Decker's ch 2 transmission
"men available" and "in an effort..." and it is already on official record
that I did tell the Ramsey panel, the DOJ, the FBI, Jim Bowles, et.al.
about the words and where they're located on the recording, this "someone
else" is going to be in for real ridicule when it is revealed that I
already informed all these government organizations who contacted me about
this. If you want to take a risk, go for it! The fact that I do not want
to commit myself to saying yes or no to your question must really bug you.
This entire fiasco is nothing more than a game to you. Like I
said,though, you're on your own.
In a new thread, I will show that you are wrong about where you say one
of the fragments is located. And if you are wrong about one of them then
it is reasonable to conclude that you are wrong about all of them.

And yes I do think so, that you cannot claim your discovery if you do
not specify where, exactly, you hear those fragments on the tape.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the

recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to

If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
Still the wrong link because it still cuts off before Murray responds
"allright".
Post by Steve Barber
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
I see you are changing your story again. Now you are saying that the
person saying the words "murray keep your mic off" was an officer who was
responding to Woodrow. Before I refuted you, you said that the phrase was
made by Woodrow. But anyone listening to the channel could tell it was not
Woodrow. But still you have it wrong, because the person is not responding
to Woodrow, it is clear that the person is directing his broadcast to
Murray Jackson. He says "Murray, keep your mic off" and a few seconds
later Murray Jackson responds "alright".

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.
http://youtu.be/PTGn6aeRmNk
Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.
Again, Correct. (see above) My error. I posted the wrong link. It was
supposed to be the audio MP3 of entire exchange between dispatch and
Officer Woodrow when Officer Woodrow reports the problem at Market Hall.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about
this? This, alone, proves that you haven't any idea what you're talking

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.
Dear reader, "Gknoll" claims that the word "Mike""mic" contains two

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"

recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has

quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.

received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement
(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,

Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from

and years analyzing top quality copies of the recordings, and who
discovered something on the recording in 1980 that "altered history" as

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.
But lets cut to the chase.
Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.
We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
We are going to have to agree to disagree with one another on this whole
thing.
Well, lets move on to the three fragments you hear before the "hold"
crosstalk.
Why should I help you with anything? You won't believe whatever I say.
You have proven this over the past year. I didn't have anyone helping me
with everything I found on channel 1. I did the work all alone, with
multi- generation copies of the police recordings, a hand held cassette
recorder and a multi generation recording made on a piece of laminated
cardboard played on cheap audio turntable, receiver and speakers. You
think you're right and everyone else is wrong, so, let's see what you're
made of. You're on your own.
You still won't answer questions.
Are you trying to be like your hero Trump?

the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.
I see you are changing your story again. Now you are saying that the
person saying the words "murray keep your mic off" was an officer who was
responding to Woodrow. Before I refuted you, you said that the phrase was
made by Woodrow. But anyone listening to the channel could tell it was not
Woodrow. But still you have it wrong, because the person is not responding
to Woodrow, it is clear that the person is directing his broadcast to
Murray Jackson. He says "Murray, keep your mic off" and a few seconds
later Murray Jackson responds "alright".

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.
http://youtu.be/PTGn6aeRmNk
Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.
Again, Correct. (see above) My error. I posted the wrong link. It was
supposed to be the audio MP3 of entire exchange between dispatch and
Officer Woodrow when Officer Woodrow reports the problem at Market Hall.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".

Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"

recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has

received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did

(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,

Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from

forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.
But lets cut to the chase.
Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.
We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.

Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.

Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
We are going to have to agree to disagree with one another on this whole
thing.
Well, lets move on to the three fragments you hear before the "hold"
crosstalk.
Why should I help you with anything? You won't believe whatever I say.
You have proven this over the past year. I didn't have anyone helping me
with everything I found on channel 1. I did the work all alone, with
multi- generation copies of the police recordings, a hand held cassette
recorder and a multi generation recording made on a piece of laminated
cardboard played on cheap audio turntable, receiver and speakers. You
think you're right and everyone else is wrong, so, let's see what you're
made of. You're on your own.
You still won't answer questions.

You are afraid to tell us what the two words are that you hear from unit

Am I?

When have you ever asked me about unit 56? Unit 56 made one transmission
at 12:28 before the microphone became stuck open. The next thing we here
regarding unit 56 is when Murray Jackson asks the questions while the
microphone is stuck open: "Anyone know where 56 is?" No response from 56
to Jackson's question. So what are you talking about? And stop saying
that I'm "afraid". You flatter yourself as much as your pal, Gknoll! I am
not "afraid" of anything regarding anything you post, Marsh.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the

recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to

If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.

In my opinion, the words spoken during the radio transmission by F.G. Woodrow is in regard to the pedestrian problem at Market Hall (see above transmission).
Again, it is NOT Officer Woodrow who is speaking these words.

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.
Dear reader, "Gknoll" claims that the word "Mike""mic" contains two
syllables. He said so, above. This proves he doesn't know what he is
talking about.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

Things did not abruptly end. They lingered because steve could not let it

several of his friends that for sure he would show that he was right and I
was wrong. But he didn't. And he won't be able to because the simple fact

Nope. "Garbled, indecipherable speech leading up to the words "Market

Again, Steve is covering his butt. He is trying to blame me for his own

there, he would be elated to have the recording enhanced and so forth in
an attempt to help the listener hear what is happening. He doesn't want
people to know that he has been challenged by someone who has spent years
and years analyzing top quality copies of the recordings, and who
discovered something on the recording in 1980 that "altered history" as
they say. He insists that I am trying to bully my way around , living off
" 15 minutes of fame" ("Fame"??? Really?!! Hardly!!!) that by my not
agreeing with him that it's "Murray, keep your mic off" I am being
"stubborn", and such. Hogwash! If I was/am wrong, I will admit it.
You are trying to bully your way around. Just look at this post that you
have written. You are trying to save face at my expense I might add.
There you go again. I don't have to save anything regarding myself! You
just said to me and anyone who reads this thread, that you don't have a
grasp on any of this because you don't even know that the word
"Mike"/"mic" contains but ONE syllable, not two, like you said above! I
just proved that you are completely out in left field regarding this
entire subject.

This case proves, Steve, that when you are wrong YOU WILL NOT ADMIT IT.
CASE CLOSED.
When I am wrong, I admit it, however I am 1 billion, gazillion percent
certain that I am not wrong, that there are three syllables forming the
two words "Market Hall" and you, sir don't know three syllables from two!
You've made this perfectly clear!

As far as I am concerned, it's case closed. The transmission is not "Murray keep your mic off" because the last two words of the transmission contain too many syllables. Period. End of story. I will never waste my time with "Gknoll" again.
You are welcome to believe what ever you want, but you lost. The words are
indeed, "Murray keep your mic off".
That's real large of you to say, however, this isn't a game to me,
although clearly is to you because you keep saying that I "lost".

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.
But lets cut to the chase.
Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.
We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
Steve,

I don't know why you bother, but I appreciate that you do it. The way the
buffs won't give something up in the face of clear evidence was at one
time frustrating but now totally predictable and expected.

Still, I wonder if sometimes you don't think you would have been better
off just looking at the pictures in Gallery magazine!

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the
Post by g***@gmail.com
recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to
Post by Steve Barber
http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.
http://youtu.be/PTGn6aeRmNk
Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.
Again, Correct. (see above) My error. I posted the wrong link. It was
supposed to be the audio MP3 of entire exchange between dispatch and
Officer Woodrow when Officer Woodrow reports the problem at Market Hall.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about

Hi Ace,

Normally, I wouldn't bother with this since it has nothing to do with
the assassination whatsoever, and is just a conspiracy buff attempting to
make something out of nothing. As you have seen, three whole people have
been posting on this topic. The newsgroup troll, Tony Marsh, the nameless
one, "Gknoll" and myself. It isn't grabbing the attention at all (to the
point of chiming in) by the many people who post in the newsgroup, which
tells you everything about the topic at hand. I wanted to present the
fact that there is an argument against what G-hill is putting out there,
and that what he/she says and that it isn't cut and dried like she'she
thinks it is. I have said all I am going to say and my final post is
telling he/she that we will just have to agree to disagree.

As far as the Gallery magazine... with due respect...that is something I
never wasted my money on other than for those many informative JFK
Assassination articles Gallery published in their rag. I tore the "Gallery
Special Report" and the record from the magazine, and threw the magazine
into the circular file where it belongs, never realizing what a collectors
item it would become in later years because of the record.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the
Post by g***@gmail.com
recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to

http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.
http://youtu.be/PTGn6aeRmNk
Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.
Again, Correct. (see above) My error. I posted the wrong link. It was
supposed to be the audio MP3 of entire exchange between dispatch and
Officer Woodrow when Officer Woodrow reports the problem at Market Hall.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

supports my interpretation of the words as "Murray, keep your mic off"

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"
says. Why? That link is not true representation of what is on the
recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of
http://youtu.be/dsHga-zQjt8
"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.
Post by g***@gmail.com
upon myself to use my high quality, digitized recordings (which I'd
received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement
(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,
and would have none of it. I was trying to
I did not become "irritated". As I just said, I welcomed his "high

able to hear the transmission with ease. Why? Because "Gknoll" expected
the listener to be able to hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" by
forcing them to listen to *HIS* poor quality MP3's as well as listen to
the transmission played at regular speed and less than a second in length.

off".
Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from
your own files, expecting the listener to grasp what you were saying by
forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you
provided for them to listen to. That is forcing people to listen to

fact that there is an argument against what G-hill is putting out there,
and that what he/she says and that it isn't cut and dried like she'she
thinks it is. I have said all I am going to say and my final post is
telling he/she that we will just have to agree to disagree.
This is Steve trying to take one last shot at me. Even though he told me a
second ago we would have to agree to disagree. But he still had to take
one more shot at me. That tells me that he knows he lost this one.

It is not a conspiracy buff making something out of nothing. Do you
consider the things that you discovered to be nothing?

The words are there and they are clear, someone told Dispatcher Murray
Jackston "Murray, keep your mic off". And he responded several seconds
later by saying "alright".

Why did someone do that? We do not know. (Although I have a hunch about
who said it and why) You do not know that it had nothing to do with the
assassination. It is really quite suspicious and you do not even have to
think about it very long to figure that it is. Why? Because here we are
years after the assassination talking about the acoustic evidence because
maybe the shots were recorded on an open microphone. Given that context,
it is not insignificant that someone told Murray to keep his mic off,
BEFORE the assassination. Now it could have been because someone
recognized there was a stuck microphone somewhere and maybe they thought
that it was Murray's mic.

We do know that James Bowles got it wrong in his transcript. And we know
that there were no more Dispatcher transmission for the following 6
minutes. So, Murray did keep his mic off.

The most important thing about this entire (years long btw) argument is
that you have shown that you cannot and will not admit when you are
obviously wrong about something. It was not intended to be that way, but
that is how it evolved.

And you do not know that it has nothing to do with the assassination.

As far as the Gallery magazine... with due respect...that is something I
never wasted my money on other than for those many informative JFK
Assassination articles Gallery published in their rag. I tore the "Gallery
Special Report" and the record from the magazine, and threw the magazine
into the circular file where it belongs, never realizing what a collectors

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the
Post by g***@gmail.com
recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to

If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.
http://youtu.be/PTGn6aeRmNk
Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.
Again, Correct. (see above) My error. I posted the wrong link. It was
supposed to be the audio MP3 of entire exchange between dispatch and
Officer Woodrow when Officer Woodrow reports the problem at Market Hall.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

supports my interpretation of the words as "Murray, keep your mic off"

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"
says. Why? That link is not true representation of what is on the
recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.

upon myself to use my high quality, digitized recordings (which I'd
received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement
(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,
and would have none of it. I was trying to
I did not become "irritated". As I just said, I welcomed his "high

forcing them to listen to *HIS* poor quality MP3's as well as listen to
the transmission played at regular speed and less than a second in length.

off".
Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from
your own files, expecting the listener to grasp what you were saying by
forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you
provided for them to listen to. That is forcing people to listen to

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.

We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.

Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.

Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
Steve,
I don't know why you bother, but I appreciate that you do it. The way the
buffs won't give something up in the face of clear evidence was at one
time frustrating but now totally predictable and expected.
Still, I wonder if sometimes you don't think you would have been better
off just looking at the pictures in Gallery magazine!
Ace
Hi Ace,
Normally, I wouldn't bother with this since it has nothing to do with
the assassination whatsoever, and is just a conspiracy buff attempting to
make something out of nothing. As you have seen, three whole people have
been posting on this topic. The newsgroup troll, Tony Marsh, the nameless
one, "Gknoll" and myself. It isn't grabbing the attention at all (to the
point of chiming in) by the many people who post in the newsgroup, which
tells you everything about the topic at hand. I wanted to present the

and that what he/she says and that it isn't cut and dried like she'she

This is Steve trying to take one last shot at me. Even though he told me a

as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to

If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.
http://youtu.be/PTGn6aeRmNk
Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.
Again, Correct. (see above) My error. I posted the wrong link. It was
supposed to be the audio MP3 of entire exchange between dispatch and
Officer Woodrow when Officer Woodrow reports the problem at Market Hall.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"
says. Why? That link is not true representation of what is on the
recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is

received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement
(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,

the transmission played at regular speed and less than a second in length.

Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from
your own files, expecting the listener to grasp what you were saying by
forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you

We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.

Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.

Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
Steve,
I don't know why you bother, but I appreciate that you do it. The way the
buffs won't give something up in the face of clear evidence was at one
time frustrating but now totally predictable and expected.
Still, I wonder if sometimes you don't think you would have been better
off just looking at the pictures in Gallery magazine!
Ace
Hi Ace,
Normally, I wouldn't bother with this since it has nothing to do with
the assassination whatsoever, and is just a conspiracy buff attempting to
make something out of nothing. As you have seen, three whole people have
been posting on this topic. The newsgroup troll, Tony Marsh, the nameless
one, "Gknoll" and myself. It isn't grabbing the attention at all (to the
point of chiming in) by the many people who post in the newsgroup, which
tells you everything about the topic at hand. I wanted to present the
fact that there is an argument against what G-hill is putting out there,
and that what he/she says and that it isn't cut and dried like she'she
thinks it is. I have said all I am going to say and my final post is
telling he/she that we will just have to agree to disagree.
This is Steve trying to take one last shot at me. Even though he told me a
second ago we would have to agree to disagree. But he still had to take
one more shot at me. That tells me that he knows he lost this one.

Why did someone do that? We do not know. (Although I have a hunch about
who said it and why) You do not know that it had nothing to do with the
assassination. It is really quite suspicious and you do not even have to
think about it very long to figure that it is. Why? Because here we are
years after the assassination talking about the acoustic evidence because
maybe the shots were recorded on an open microphone. Given that context,
it is not insignificant that someone told Murray to keep his mic off,
BEFORE the assassination. Now it could have been because someone
recognized there was a stuck microphone somewhere and maybe they thought
that it was Murray's mic.
Where are your supporters?

We do know that James Bowles got it wrong in his transcript. And we know
that there were no more Dispatcher transmission for the following 6
minutes. So, Murray did keep his mic off.

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the

recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down

If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.

Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.

Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two
syllables. Why should I-or anyone else-- listen to anything you say about
this? This, alone, proves that you haven't any idea what you're talking
about!

In my opinion, the words spoken during the radio transmission by F.G. Woodrow is in regard to the pedestrian problem at Market Hall (see above transmission).
Again, it is NOT Officer Woodrow who is speaking these words.

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.
Dear reader, "Gknoll" claims that the word "Mike""mic" contains two
syllables. He said so, above. This proves he doesn't know what he is
talking about.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

Here is the audio clip that steve posted. It completely and totally
supports my interpretation of the words as "Murray, keep your mic off"

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"
says. Why? That link is not true representation of what is on the
recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.

upon myself to use my high quality, digitized recordings (which I'd
received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement
(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,
and would have none of it. I was trying to

forcing them to listen to *HIS* poor quality MP3's as well as listen to
the transmission played at regular speed and less than a second in length.

off".
Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from
your own files, expecting the listener to grasp what you were saying by
forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you
provided for them to listen to. That is forcing people to listen to

Nope. "Garbled, indecipherable speech leading up to the words "Market

people to know that he has been challenged by someone who has spent years
and years analyzing top quality copies of the recordings, and who
discovered something on the recording in 1980 that "altered history" as
they say. He insists that I am trying to bully my way around , living off
" 15 minutes of fame" ("Fame"??? Really?!! Hardly!!!) that by my not
agreeing with him that it's "Murray, keep your mic off" I am being
"stubborn", and such. Hogwash! If I was/am wrong, I will admit it.
You are trying to bully your way around. Just look at this post that you

There you go again. I don't have to save anything regarding myself! You
just said to me and anyone who reads this thread, that you don't have a

As far as I am concerned, it's case closed. The transmission is not "Murray keep your mic off" because the last two words of the transmission contain too many syllables. Period. End of story. I will never waste my time with "Gknoll" again.
You are welcome to believe what ever you want, but you lost. The words are
indeed, "Murray keep your mic off".

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.
But lets cut to the chase.
Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.
We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
Steve,
I don't know why you bother, but I appreciate that you do it. The way the
buffs won't give something up in the face of clear evidence was at one
time frustrating but now totally predictable and expected.
Still, I wonder if sometimes you don't think you would have been better
off just looking at the pictures in Gallery magazine!
Ace
Hi Ace,
Normally, I wouldn't bother with this since it has nothing to do with
the assassination whatsoever, and is just a conspiracy buff attempting to
make something out of nothing. As you have seen, three whole people have
been posting on this topic. The newsgroup troll, Tony Marsh, the nameless
one, "Gknoll" and myself. It isn't grabbing the attention at all (to the
point of chiming in) by the many people who post in the newsgroup, which
tells you everything about the topic at hand. I wanted to present the
fact that there is an argument against what G-hill is putting out there,
and that what he/she says and that it isn't cut and dried like she'she
thinks it is. I have said all I am going to say and my final post is
telling he/she that we will just have to agree to disagree.
This is Steve trying to take one last shot at me. Even though he told me a
second ago we would have to agree to disagree. But he still had to take
one more shot at me. That tells me that he knows he lost this one.
Still a game to you. Where are all your supporters? where are all the
people who agree with you? Eh?

It is not a conspiracy buff making something out of nothing. Do you
consider the things that you discovered to be nothing?
Where are your supporters?
Post by GKnoll
The words are there and they are clear, someone told Dispatcher Murray
Jackston "Murray, keep your mic off". And he responded several seconds
later by saying "alright".
You have no one supporting your claim. No one.
Post by GKnoll
Why did someone do that? We do not know. (Although I have a hunch about
who said it and why) You do not know that it had nothing to do with the
assassination. It is really quite suspicious and you do not even have to
think about it very long to figure that it is. Why? Because here we are
years after the assassination talking about the acoustic evidence because
maybe the shots were recorded on an open microphone. Given that context,
it is not insignificant that someone told Murray to keep his mic off,
BEFORE the assassination. Now it could have been because someone
recognized there was a stuck microphone somewhere and maybe they thought
that it was Murray's mic.
Where are your supporters?
Post by GKnoll
We do know that James Bowles got it wrong in his transcript. And we know
that there were no more Dispatcher transmission for the following 6
minutes. So, Murray did keep his mic off.
All speculation on your part.
Post by GKnoll
The most important thing about this entire (years long btw) argument is
that you have shown that you cannot and will not admit when you are
obviously wrong about something. It was not intended to be that way, but
that is how it evolved.
This goes triple for you.
Post by GKnoll
And you do not know that it has nothing to do with the assassination.
It has nothing to do with the assassination. You offer NOTHING but
speculation. Speculation! Where are your supporters?
Get back with me when you have a group of people supporting your

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the
Post by g***@gmail.com
recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to

If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.

Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.

Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.
Dear reader, "Gknoll" claims that the word "Mike""mic" contains two
syllables. He said so, above. This proves he doesn't know what he is
talking about.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

Here is the audio clip that steve posted. It completely and totally
supports my interpretation of the words as "Murray, keep your mic off"

No, dear reader, it isn't and no, it doesn't support anything "Gknoll"
says. Why? That link is not true representation of what is on the
recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.

upon myself to use my high quality, digitized recordings (which I'd
received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement
(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,
and would have none of it. I was trying to
I did not become "irritated". As I just said, I welcomed his "high

able to hear the transmission with ease. Why? Because "Gknoll" expected
the listener to be able to hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" by
forcing them to listen to *HIS* poor quality MP3's as well as listen to
the transmission played at regular speed and less than a second in length.

Steve is making stuff up here. I did not force anyone to do anything. When

off".
Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from
your own files, expecting the listener to grasp what you were saying by
forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you
provided for them to listen to. That is forcing people to listen to
something by expecting them to listen to it. Wait. You tried to tell me

Steve is trying to cover his butt right now. He got caught in a mistake. I
warned him several time that he should drop it because he was barking up

Things did not abruptly end. They lingered because steve could not let it
go. He made a mistake he tried to defend it and he lost. But he could

several of his friends that for sure he would show that he was right and I
was wrong. But he didn't. And he won't be able to because the simple fact

Nope. "Garbled, indecipherable speech leading up to the words "Market

Again, Steve is covering his butt. He is trying to blame me for his own

there, he would be elated to have the recording enhanced and so forth in
an attempt to help the listener hear what is happening. He doesn't want
people to know that he has been challenged by someone who has spent years
and years analyzing top quality copies of the recordings, and who
discovered something on the recording in 1980 that "altered history" as
they say. He insists that I am trying to bully my way around , living off
" 15 minutes of fame" ("Fame"??? Really?!! Hardly!!!) that by my not
agreeing with him that it's "Murray, keep your mic off" I am being
"stubborn", and such. Hogwash! If I was/am wrong, I will admit it.
You are trying to bully your way around. Just look at this post that you
have written. You are trying to save face at my expense I might add.
There you go again. I don't have to save anything regarding myself! You
just said to me and anyone who reads this thread, that you don't have a
grasp on any of this because you don't even know that the word
"Mike"/"mic" contains but ONE syllable, not two, like you said above! I
just proved that you are completely out in left field regarding this
entire subject.

This case proves, Steve, that when you are wrong YOU WILL NOT ADMIT IT.
CASE CLOSED.
When I am wrong, I admit it, however I am 1 billion, gazillion percent
certain that I am not wrong, that there are three syllables forming the
two words "Market Hall" and you, sir don't know three syllables from two!
You've made this perfectly clear!

Post by Steve Barber
As far as I am concerned, it's case closed. The transmission is not "Murray keep your mic off" because the last two words of the transmission contain too many syllables. Period. End of story. I will never waste my time with "Gknoll" again.
You are welcome to believe what ever you want, but you lost. The words are
indeed, "Murray keep your mic off".
That's real large of you to say, however, this isn't a game to me,
although clearly is to you because you keep saying that I "lost".

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.
But lets cut to the chase.
Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.
We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
Steve,
I don't know why you bother, but I appreciate that you do it. The way the
buffs won't give something up in the face of clear evidence was at one
time frustrating but now totally predictable and expected.
Still, I wonder if sometimes you don't think you would have been better
off just looking at the pictures in Gallery magazine!
Ace
Hi Ace,
Normally, I wouldn't bother with this since it has nothing to do with
the assassination whatsoever, and is just a conspiracy buff attempting to
make something out of nothing. As you have seen, three whole people have
been posting on this topic. The newsgroup troll, Tony Marsh, the nameless
one, "Gknoll" and myself. It isn't grabbing the attention at all (to the
point of chiming in) by the many people who post in the newsgroup, which
tells you everything about the topic at hand. I wanted to present the
fact that there is an argument against what G-hill is putting out there,
and that what he/she says and that it isn't cut and dried like she'she
thinks it is. I have said all I am going to say and my final post is
telling he/she that we will just have to agree to disagree.
This is Steve trying to take one last shot at me. Even though he told me a
second ago we would have to agree to disagree. But he still had to take
one more shot at me. That tells me that he knows he lost this one.
Still a game to you. Where are all your supporters? where are all the
people who agree with you? Eh?
Post by GKnoll
It is not a conspiracy buff making something out of nothing. Do you
consider the things that you discovered to be nothing?
Where are your supporters?
Post by GKnoll
The words are there and they are clear, someone told Dispatcher Murray
Jackston "Murray, keep your mic off". And he responded several seconds
later by saying "alright".
You have no one supporting your claim. No one.
Post by GKnoll
Why did someone do that? We do not know. (Although I have a hunch about
who said it and why) You do not know that it had nothing to do with the
assassination. It is really quite suspicious and you do not even have to
think about it very long to figure that it is. Why? Because here we are
years after the assassination talking about the acoustic evidence because
maybe the shots were recorded on an open microphone. Given that context,
it is not insignificant that someone told Murray to keep his mic off,
BEFORE the assassination. Now it could have been because someone
recognized there was a stuck microphone somewhere and maybe they thought
that it was Murray's mic.
Where are your supporters?
Post by GKnoll
We do know that James Bowles got it wrong in his transcript. And we know
that there were no more Dispatcher transmission for the following 6
minutes. So, Murray did keep his mic off.
All speculation on your part.
Post by GKnoll
The most important thing about this entire (years long btw) argument is
that you have shown that you cannot and will not admit when you are
obviously wrong about something. It was not intended to be that way, but
that is how it evolved.
This goes triple for you.
Post by GKnoll
And you do not know that it has nothing to do with the assassination.
It has nothing to do with the assassination. You offer NOTHING but
speculation. Speculation! Where are your supporters?
Get back with me when you have a group of people supporting your
ridiculous claims and what their credentials are.
So you think that is how to decide facts? Take a vote? Well we did and
YOU lost. 7-5 FOR conspiracy. Go home, loser.
According to your pal, Gknoll/Frankr/Bob/Mike it is how to decide
facts. Haven't you been reading these threads? Problem is, though, there
are no "facts" involved with what your pal is trying to pawn off on the
people in this newsgroup. And you won't come right out and say whether you
support him or not--even though he responded to your asking him "When did
I ever say I agreed...? to which he responded by posting the link the
where you were asked a question by Michael O'Dell and which you replied
to. This is the link to it, and you never addressed what your pal asked
you.


https://groups.google.com/d/msg/alt.assassination.jfk/MR3ApgE14TQ/A00HHAifCQAJ

So, if you are agreeing with your pal, you should--at least-- have the

The following audio clips are a portion of the Dallas police radio voice traffic, channel 1, for November 22, 1963. The time is 12:28. It is the beginnings of the 5.5 minute stuck open microphone sequence that took place before, during, and after the assassination of President Kennedy. A person who posts under the name "Gknoll" claims that there is some funny business going on
I never said there was "funny business".
You've made it perfectly clear in your posts from a year ago (without
coming right out and saying it) that Murray Jackson may have been told to
keep his mic off. This isn't way dispatch works! Plus there were two
dispatchers on duty, not just Murray Jackson. Had this been the case, why
wasn't l the other dispatcher on duty with Murray Jackson to also keep his
mic off?! Your whole theory is outrageous, ludicrous and ridiculous. And
if this doesn't classify as "funny business" nothing does because dispatch
doesn't work that way.
All I did was listen to the
Post by g***@gmail.com
recording and state the words that I hear. I hear the words "Murray, keep
your mic off" followed a few seconds later with Murray responding
"Alright". I am positive those are the words that are spoken.
Just because you are "positive" doesn't prove anything, other than that
you are positive that you hear those words. I just happened to be the one
to challenge you after having spent 30 plus years with this recording.
You have turned this into a game, a contest that you continually say I
have "lost" because you can't stand to be challenged. It all boils down
to that.

with the police dispatcher, Murray Jackson, and that "someone"( not
necessarily a police officer, according to him) told Murray Jackson "
Murray, keep your mic off" just after the microphone became stuck in the
open position. The microphone became stuck in the open position just
as--or after--Dallas police officer F. G. Woodrow (His call number that
day was 38) contacted the police dispatcher to report a pedestrian problem
at Market Hall near the Trade Mart where President Kennedy was to make a
speech. Officer Woodrow's transmission reads as follows (Here is a link to

If you listen to the audio above, it should be obvious to everyone, that
the voice speaking the words "Murray, keep your mic off" is not the same
voice that was reporting the pedestrian problem (ie Officer Woodrow).
Also, Steve cuts off the audio clip before dispatcher Murray Jackson
responds "Alright".
That is correct. I posted the wrong link (for which I am sorry) which was
supposed to be the audio of the Dallas police recording of the 12:28
transmission exchange between Offcier Woodrow(call # 38) and dispatcht, so
as to enable people to listen as they read the transcript of the exchange
between dispatch and Officer Woodrow.
The link should have been this link: http://youtu.be/5-Q2G4vwlqU
And... the word "(al)right" has no bearing whatsoever on the segment
being discussed. None. I agree that the word "alright"/"right" is being
spoken, however, I hear only one syllable, and it sounds like the word
"Right", to me. Either way, I agree the word is one or the other, and that
the dispatcher says it in response the officer who responded to the
transmission made by F.G. Woodrow regarding Market Hall. We know it's
dispatch because there are no heterodyne tones accompanying the dispatch
transmission "right/alright". Heterodyne tones were produced only by
people out in the field when they key open their mic while another
microphone is also keyed open, not by dispatch.

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.
Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
Steve is wrong, there are not only two words that are legible. The entire
phrase is legible and the phrase is "Murray, keep your mic off". It is
actually pretty darn clear.
No, not clear at all.

In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.
http://youtu.be/PTGn6aeRmNk
Again, that is not Officer Woodrow speaking. We know that because the
person speaking the "Murray, keep your mic off" phrase sounds nothing like
the preceding transmission made by Officer Woodrow.
Again, Correct. (see above) My error. I posted the wrong link. It was
supposed to be the audio MP3 of entire exchange between dispatch and
Officer Woodrow when Officer Woodrow reports the problem at Market Hall.

Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow.
Again, it is not Officer Woodrow. Apparently steve does not realize that
there are 3 syllables in the phrase "mic off". The first syllable is
"mi"(pronounced my) the second syllable is "ke"(for the letter "c") and
the third syllable is "off". Here is a picture to show what I just wrote.
(Again see above) No, it is not Officer Woodrow speaking, I point out my
error above, twice)
What?! So now you are trying to re define the English language! The word
"mic" or "Mike" does NOT contain two syllables!
https://www.howmanysyllables.com/words/mike
http://www.syllablecount.com/syllables/mike
Also the word you say is "off" is not "Off" it is the word "Hall", as in
Mar-ket Hall. Three syllables. Two syllables in the word Market, and one
syllable in the word "Hall".

As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to
allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then
gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then
gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Post by Steve Barber
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Frankly, I think Steves audio makes it pretty clear that the words are
indeed "mic off". We can hear it through the entire clip.
Says the guy, Gknoll who claims that the word "Mike"/ "mic" has two
syllables, when it doesn't. You are wrong.

Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
Steve, these audios you make just keep proving my case, as much as you
try, the words that come through loud and clear are the words "murray,
keep your mic off".
You do not have a case. You said that the word "Mike"/mic" contains two

When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
You may not be an amateur, but as this episode shows, you are not always
right and you can and do make mistakes.

In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it
I did not use poor quality transmissions. And it really does not matter.
When Steve posted his own "high quality" audio of this phrase it was
obvious that his audio supported my position,ie that the words spoken are
"Murray, keep your mic off".
Really? The MP3's you have posted in this newsgroup say differently! And
as you will see, the MP3 you keep bringing up from last year is now
inferior compared to the better quality recording I recently discovered.

recording. What it *is* is a copy of an MP3 I made and posted on YouTube
nearly a year ago. It was made from what has SINCE become an inferior
copy of the channel 1 recording that I had in my files, that was at the
time, the best quality available directly from the files of the Chairman
of the Committee On Ballistic Acoustics, Norman F. Ramsey, who sent them
to me in 2001. Please make note the difference in the quality--ergo
clarity of the audio by comparing the now inferior copy to the clarity of

"Gknoll" is taking desperate measures to make certain no one can hear
very clearly, the last two words that contain 3 syllables i.e. "Mar-ket
Hall", by providing inferior quality MP3's when better quality has
recently been made available to him by me. Until I heard the better
quality copy I discovered a month or so ago, I didn't realize how much is
actually missing from the copies I had from my files.

upon myself to use my high quality, digitized recordings (which I'd
received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll"
that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did
what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement
(when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be
subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in
deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated,
and would have none of it. I was trying to
I did not become "irritated". As I just said, I welcomed his "high
quality" audios. They actually supported my case to such a degree that I
started using Steves audio to prove my case. Here his steves audio once

able to hear the transmission with ease. Why? Because "Gknoll" expected
the listener to be able to hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" by
forcing them to listen to *HIS* poor quality MP3's as well as listen to
the transmission played at regular speed and less than a second in length.

Steve is making stuff up here. I did not force anyone to do anything. When

off".
Not true. You were posting your own made MP3's just a year ago, from
your own files, expecting the listener to grasp what you were saying by
forcing them to have to listen to your files--because it was all you
provided for them to listen to. That is forcing people to listen to
something by expecting them to listen to it. Wait. You tried to tell me
that the word "Mike/"mic" contains two syllables when it is one syllable,
so I have to provide the definition of the word "force" because clearly

was "desperate" and that his interpretation of the transmission must be a

Steve is trying to cover his butt right now. He got caught in a mistake. I
warned him several time that he should drop it because he was barking up
the wrong tree.
Dear reader, as you can see, I don't have to "cover my butt" for any

Things did not abruptly end. They lingered because steve could not let it
go. He made a mistake he tried to defend it and he lost. But he could
accept that he made a mistake. He did the same thing this time that he did
the last time. He said that he had the answer and he tried it out on
several of his friends that for sure he would show that he was right and I
was wrong. But he didn't. And he won't be able to because the simple fact
is that the words that are spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off".
Nope. "Garbled, indecipherable speech leading up to the words "Market
Hall". This isn't a game. Stop treating it as such.

Again, Steve is covering his butt. He is trying to blame me for his own
mistakes. He is trying to use his 15 minutes of fame to convince you that

admitting he made a mistake, he would rather harm me.

there, he would be elated to have the recording enhanced and so forth in
an attempt to help the listener hear what is happening. He doesn't want
people to know that he has been challenged by someone who has spent years
and years analyzing top quality copies of the recordings, and who
discovered something on the recording in 1980 that "altered history" as
they say. He insists that I am trying to bully my way around , living off
" 15 minutes of fame" ("Fame"??? Really?!! Hardly!!!) that by my not
agreeing with him that it's "Murray, keep your mic off" I am being
"stubborn", and such. Hogwash! If I was/am wrong, I will admit it.
You are trying to bully your way around. Just look at this post that you
have written. You are trying to save face at my expense I might add.
There you go again. I don't have to save anything regarding myself! You
just said to me and anyone who reads this thread, that you don't have a
grasp on any of this because you don't even know that the word
"Mike"/"mic" contains but ONE syllable, not two, like you said above! I
just proved that you are completely out in left field regarding this
entire subject.
Post by g***@gmail.com
This case proves, Steve, that when you are wrong YOU WILL NOT ADMIT IT.
CASE CLOSED.
When I am wrong, I admit it, however I am 1 billion, gazillion percent
certain that I am not wrong, that there are three syllables forming the
two words "Market Hall" and you, sir don't know three syllables from two!
You've made this perfectly clear!
Post by g***@gmail.com
Post by Steve Barber
As far as I am concerned, it's case closed. The transmission is not "Murray keep your mic off" because the last two words of the transmission contain too many syllables. Period. End of story. I will never waste my time with "Gknoll" again.
You are welcome to believe what ever you want, but you lost. The words are
indeed, "Murray keep your mic off".
That's real large of you to say, however, this isn't a game to me,
although clearly is to you because you keep saying that I "lost".

It took me a long time to wade through all of that.
But lets cut to the chase.
Steve is trying to bow out of an acoustic discussion with me right now. The
"Murray, keep your mic off" episode is what he is using to do that.
We will get to that when this is settled. Not until.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Steve knows where I am headed. I am headed to those three phrase that
Steve said he heard BEFORE the "hold" cross talk. That is what I am
currently interested in. Steve does not want to talk about that and he is
using the "Murray, keep your mic off" as an excuse to be able to say that
he will not discuss acoustics with me ever again. Steve is trying to
wiggle out of that. That is what is going on here folks.
Yeah, I know where you are "headed", alright...and it isn't good for you.
Post by g***@gmail.com
Ask Steve to tell you all where exactly he hears those three crosstalk
phrases that he says he hears before the "HOLD" phrase.
Again, we will get to that when this is settled. Just like I am 1
billion, gazillion percent certain that this is not "Murray, keep your mic
off"--the last two words being the main topic since they are the clearest
words recorded during the transmission--and that the last two words spoken
contain 3 syllables as in the words "Market Hall", I am 1 billion,
gazillion certain that the words I hear from the Decker channel 2
transmission are exactly where I said they are. But in your attempt at
"winning " this game you are playing, you want to get as far away from it
as you can get, now. Not going to happen on my watch.
Steve,
I don't know why you bother, but I appreciate that you do it. The way the
buffs won't give something up in the face of clear evidence was at one
time frustrating but now totally predictable and expected.
Still, I wonder if sometimes you don't think you would have been better
off just looking at the pictures in Gallery magazine!
Ace
Hi Ace,
Normally, I wouldn't bother with this since it has nothing to do with
the assassination whatsoever, and is just a conspiracy buff attempting to
make something out of nothing. As you have seen, three whole people have
been posting on this topic. The newsgroup troll, Tony Marsh, the nameless
one, "Gknoll" and myself. It isn't grabbing the attention at all (to the
point of chiming in) by the many people who post in the newsgroup, which
tells you everything about the topic at hand. I wanted to present the
fact that there is an argument against what G-hill is putting out there,
and that what he/she says and that it isn't cut and dried like she'she
thinks it is. I have said all I am going to say and my final post is
telling he/she that we will just have to agree to disagree.
This is Steve trying to take one last shot at me. Even though he told me a
second ago we would have to agree to disagree. But he still had to take
one more shot at me. That tells me that he knows he lost this one.
Still a game to you. Where are all your supporters? where are all the
people who agree with you? Eh?
Post by GKnoll
It is not a conspiracy buff making something out of nothing. Do you
consider the things that you discovered to be nothing?
Where are your supporters?
Post by GKnoll
The words are there and they are clear, someone told Dispatcher Murray
Jackston "Murray, keep your mic off". And he responded several seconds
later by saying "alright".
You have no one supporting your claim. No one.
Post by GKnoll
Why did someone do that? We do not know. (Although I have a hunch about
who said it and why) You do not know that it had nothing to do with the
assassination. It is really quite suspicious and you do not even have to
think about it very long to figure that it is. Why? Because here we are
years after the assassination talking about the acoustic evidence because
maybe the shots were recorded on an open microphone. Given that context,
it is not insignificant that someone told Murray to keep his mic off,
BEFORE the assassination. Now it could have been because someone
recognized there was a stuck microphone somewhere and maybe they thought
that it was Murray's mic.
Where are your supporters?
Post by GKnoll
We do know that James Bowles got it wrong in his transcript. And we know
that there were no more Dispatcher transmission for the following 6
minutes. So, Murray did keep his mic off.
All speculation on your part.
Post by GKnoll
The most important thing about this entire (years long btw) argument is
that you have shown that you cannot and will not admit when you are
obviously wrong about something. It was not intended to be that way, but
that is how it evolved.
This goes triple for you.
Post by GKnoll
And you do not know that it has nothing to do with the assassination.
It has nothing to do with the assassination. You offer NOTHING but
speculation. Speculation! Where are your supporters?
Get back with me when you have a group of people supporting your
ridiculous claims and what their credentials are.
So you think that is how to decide facts? Take a vote? Well we did and
YOU lost. 7-5 FOR conspiracy. Go home, loser.

As far as the Gallery magazine... with due respect...that is something I
never wasted my money on other than for those many informative JFK
Assassination articles Gallery published in their rag. I tore the "Gallery
Special Report" and the record from the magazine, and threw the magazine
into the circular file where it belongs, never realizing what a collectors
item it would become in later years because of the record.
I'll go on record as completely agreeing with Steve B. Under no
circumstances does the voice heard in the Channel 1 recording even come
close to saying "Murray keep your mic off". Can I tell what is actually
being said? No. But I can certainly say without a doubt that the statement
is what Gknoll believes it to be. Just like the people that want to see
"Badgeman" in the Moorman photo, Gknoll is going to hear what he wants to
hear. Steve B. has provided an amazing audio rebuttal to this debate, and
is to be commended for making the definitive case. If Gknoll wants to
continue to claim he hears "laural" instead of "yanni", so be it.

(Officer Woodrow) 38!
Dispatcher: 38.
38: Might tell some of those people involved handling this deal out here at Market Hall that there's people walking across Southbound Stemmons here in front of the Marriott Hotel and all the way down south.

Dispatcher: 10-4 38. You still enroute to court?
38: 10-4
Approximately 11 seconds pass when an unidentified officer(we can't hear a call number identifying himself) keys open his mic and utters a transmission that is garbled and accompanied with heavy, constant background noise, making it extremely difficult to understand except for the final words of the transmission. "Gknoll" claims that he can hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" within the garbled transmission. There are two words and two words only that are legible and they occur as the last two words at the end of the transmission
In the audio clip below, titled "C-1 Transmission 12:28 11-22-63", I open the clip with Officer Woodrow's complete transmission. It is the entire transmission by F.G. Woodrow as it was recorded on 11/22/63. No filtering or any type of enhancement or speed change has been added. The segment is repeated twice.
http://youtu.be/PTGn6aeRmNk
Everything you just heard following the twice repeated Woodrow transmission is filtered. The remaining segments are the same complete Woodrow transmission featuring slowed tempo without altering the true pitch of the voice. I decreased the speed of the actual tempos and added filtering to the recording primarily to enable the listener the chance to hear the last two words spoken--which are unmistakably clearer than the rest of the transmission. These are words which "Gknoll" claims are the words "mic off " as in "Murray, keep your mic off". You will notice that there are three very distinct syllables within the two words spoken by Officer Woodrow. As the audio file continues, after having decreased the natural tempo to allow the listener a chance to clearly hear the three syllables, I then gradually speeded up the tempo until it reaches natural speed, then gradually increase the tempo speed so it is playing too fast.
Do you hear the words "Mic off"? They are not there. There are too many syllables within those two words, which, according to "Gknoll" are "Mic off".
Audio file #2: Within this audio file, you will be listening to the clearest words in the transmission, which are the final two words spoken during the transmission by Officer Woodrow. The first portion transmission which "Gknoll" insists is "Murray keep your" have been removed, leaving only the words he insists are "Mic off". This file is filtered, with different tempo changes added to this final portion of the transmission in question. There are also unfiltered segments included to which I applied the same methods, i.e. playing the last words from the transmission unfiltered at slightly slower tempo, regular speed and then gradual increased tempo . You will notice that clearly, there are unmistakably three syllables, not two. You will also notice that as I increased the tempo, it reaches the point where it sounds like the words spoken sound like the words "rock and roll". In other words, you are clearly hearing three syllables, not two words as in "Mic off".
http://youtu.be/8FXSXpisIag
In my opinion, the words spoken during the radio transmission by F.G. Woodrow is in regard to the pedestrian problem at Market Hall (see above transmission).
http://youtu.be/k1-CXd9qdIQ
When "Gknoll" posted his theory here at this newsgroup last year, he posted mp3's of the transmission made by Officer Woodrow, suggesting that the words spoken are "Murray, keep your mic off". I contested and this led to a long, sometimes heated "discussion" between the two of us. I am no amateur when it comes to the contents of this recording.
In 1978, when I first began listening to the Dallas police recordings, and having heard this particular transmission over and over and over because it was thought by Gary Mack (the researcher who brought the Dallas police recording of channel 1 to the attention of the HSCA) that 7 gunshots immediately followed the transmission "10-4" by Officer Woodrow, when the officer responded to the dispatcher's "10-4" after he radioed in about the problem at Market Hall.
I did not own or have access to any copies of the Dallas police recordings at the time. What I had was what was included as a small segment during a local Dallas radio program on which Gary Mack was a guest, and on which he played the complete segment of the police recording that he thought contained the gunshots that killed President Kennedy. This included the entire F.G. Woodrow transmission and beyond .It was a cassette tape that I'd purchased from M&A Book Dealer's' (now defunct) who specialized in books and audio tapes regarding the JFK assassination.
According to Gary, the first "gunshot" came instantly after Officer Woodrow made the transmission "10-4", in response to the dispatcher. I spent a lot of time listening to that section of the recording, trying to hear the "gunshots", and therefore listened to the radio transmission by Officer Woodrow because the supposed 7 gunshots overlap the section of the recording regarding the transmission made by Officer Woodrow. I became extremely familiar with the F.G. Woodrow transmission.
Once "Gknoll" posted MP3's (in an attempt to convince readers of what he could hear) I challenged him by pointing out that I thought him to be in error-- and that the transmission was regarding Market Hall. "Gknoll" firmly disagreed and then repeatedly posted and re-posted his MP3's of Officer Woodrow's transmission, using poor quality recordings to make his point. I then took it upon myself to use my high quality, digitized recordings (which I'd received from Norman Ramsey and Paul Horowitz ) to try to show "Gknoll" that the transmission is in regards to Market Hall. In doing so, I did what is now common practice, using today's technology in law enforcement (when recordings of this nature become evidence of interest and have to be subjected to filtering and speed adjustment procedures to aid in deciphering otherwise indecipherable speech). "Gknoll" became irritated, and would have none of it. I was trying to make it easier for both he and the listener(whoever they may be) to be able to hear the transmission with ease. Why? Because "Gknoll" expected the listener to be able to hear the words "Murray, keep your mic off" by forcing them to listen to *HIS* poor quality MP3's as well as listen to the transmission played at regular speed and less than a second in length. He didn't want anyone to listen to the MP3's I made, and made it perfectly clear. He claimed that I was "desperate" and that his interpretation of the transmission must be a "threat" to me, otherwise, I wouldn't be making enhanced recordings to prove my point to "get them to sound the way [I] want them to sound. The whole I diea is to make it easy--as easy as possible for listener's to be able to grasp the point, not make it as difficult as possible.
Things escalated and became outrageous with his accusations becoming more and more ridiculous. I stopped wasting my time. No one was responding to anything being "discussed" in the newsgroup regarding the recording other than Tony Marsh, and I thought it was stupid to carry on with the "Gknoll" charade. Things abruptly ended, and faded into oblivion. It came up again just two-three mopnths ago months ago, and here we go again. What it all boils down to is, "Gknoll" doesn't want anyone to be able to decipher what is on the channel 1 recording. If he did want people to be able to hear what he claims is there, he would be elated to have the recording enhanced and so forth in an attempt to help the listener hear what is happening.
