Cuba, Turkey and Iran anomalies

Something's always wrong at {RHC, rather at Near East transmission facilities too, TRT Emirler, or IRIB's Zahedan / Sirjan sites, for example on Jan 9:

TURKEY    5960.004 kHz TRT German.

Glenn Hauser often reports on a dissolute way of working at the TRT Emirler
technicians, i.e. they don't switch TX off after the English broadcast
regularly 23-24 UT, but cheerfully continues to broadcast the TRT GERMAN
service taken from their web livestream Broadcast.

Today Jan 9th at 00.22-00.24 UT a travel report from their folklore feature
corner, belongs to the remote Perseus in New Jersey's eastern US coast
with S = 9 + 20dB signal level.

MOLDOVA/TURKEY  13730even  Voice of Radio Denge Welat Kurdish radio program
via Grigoriopol Maiac Moldova at 09.10 UT on Jan 9,
originate from Brussels Belgium,
hit by co-channel of - possibly -

13730.008 kHz TRT Radio Emirler something px taken from
Turkish security patriotic sce.
S=9+25dB both equal level, noted in Doha Qatar remote SDR unit.
9.6 kHz wideband audio block seen.

[selected SDR options, span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz]

IRAN  13820.005 VoIRIB Arabic sce was in the clear at 09.18 UT check,
S=9+15dB strong sidelobe in remote Doha Qatar SDR rx.

13820 0830-1030 Arabic        500 282  Sirjan         293548N0554707E
had weak 3 x strings accompanied on either sideband,
50, 100, 150 Hertz apart distance.

But at 09.23 UT heard also another station testing TEST tones of
8 x 767 Hertz apart distance strings on either sideband,
also on S=9+15dB strength level.

At 09.55 UT of 824 Hertz apart tones heard ... but no IRIB Arabic anymore.

My only guess:
13820 0530-0730 Arabic        500 289  Zahedan        292835N0605150E
the technician on Zahedan site - scheduled on air at 05.30-07.30 UT slot -
tested the IRIB Zahedan tx with different test tone procedure ???

15129.959 much ODD frequency from Sirjan outlet.
S=9+15dB in short distance in Doha Qatar.
0930-1430 UT Arabic 500 kW 216degr azimuth
towards Saudi Arabia, NoEaAF, Sahel, WeAF target.
