A cable on 27 November 1963, stated that AMBLOW-1 was pleased with the results of his Miami visit, and was now in contact with top officials of AREC. AMBLOW-1 was put in contact with AMGABE-1, and met the JMWAVE Case Officer, who used the name "Charles Kaprall." AMBLOW-1 was apparently returning to Santo Domingo on 28 November, 1963. In addition, a cable in May 1964, referred to a meeting between Carlos Prio Socarras and AMBLOW-1 during that month.
