11/22/63 PRIORITY cable WAVE 8062 from WAVE to Director, slugline RYBAT TYPIC AMCANOE KEYKAY, copy issued to Mr. Tilton 2015 22 Nov: "Cancelling 22 Nov KEYKAY exfil attempt for foll reasons: "SI traffic morning 22 Nov reflects Cuban naval patrols alerted in same general area exfil point "to intercept pirate boats"...AMRIPE-2 telephoned AMRIPE-1 early morning 22 Nov and advised, obviously keyed to signals (WAVE 7712) that their son should not take any of courses suggested. WAVE tentatively interprets this conversation to mean exfil attempt should not be made. Phone conversation mentioned paragraph 2 (DIR 84284) indicates info passed and AMCANOE-3 heading for exfil point. Sea area between Florida Keys and exfil point still (illegible) by heavy seas which makes any exfil attempt impractical with available station boats. AMRIPE-2 also advised AMRIPE-1 that he mailed her letter 21 Nov. WAVE interprets this to mean that A-2 sent (shortwave) to WAVE, explaining change in plans, via NIEXIT pouch due Mexico 22 November. In view importance exfiltrating AMCANOE-3 and obvious complications which would ensue were he arrested, WAVE requests Headquarters use whatever influence available try convince AMCANOE assets refrain from all unnecessary phone calls to AMCANOES in Cuba."
