Right is as follows:

6115kHz, R. Congo, Congo, Brazzaville; 09/12, 0536 – 0543 two male in french discussion outside, short african percussion sounding like marimba as bridge to a female “Congo”, male outside, studio female, short african music as before as a bridge to a pop music. Fair, clear (LOB).
https://soundcloud.com/user-463139565/congo6115khz0536utc09122020?ref=clipboard&p=a&c=1

4925kHz, R. Educação Rural (**or Radio Rural), Brasil, Tefé; 11/12, 2359 – 2307 relaying its FM channel (93.9), pop music, ToH recorded ID “Radio Rural 93.9...amazonia...por um mundo melhor” (but sometimes announcer mentions “Radio Educaçao Rural”), ads, “boa noite, sexta feira dia 11 de dezembro...oito horas e três minutos...desmatamento de madeira”, ads: “tome Vitamel”. Poor but partially readable (LOB).
https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/Zv3mW

**From its site radioruraltefe.com.br.:

TODAY RADIO EDUCAÇÃO RURAL IS RADIO RURAL FM 93.9, AFTER THE MIGRATION FROM AM TO FM.

On December 7, 2017, Radio Educação Rural de Tefé made the change from the “AM1270” to the “FM 93.9.” For director Thomas, the challenge is to win over the FM listener. “AM radio is a real passion, we always dream of a better quality. Our audience is loyal, so we are going to keep 80% of the programming and we will make some adaptations to win more listeners ”, highlighted the director. On the air for 55 years, Rádio Educação Rural de Tefé currently has a team of 9 people. With the completion of the installation work, you will be able to tune our station to the FM 93.9 band, with much more quality. The radio will continue to broadcast on its Tropical waves, in addition to FM 93.9, as well as on the Internet, on the website: radioruraltefe.com.br.

You definitely have the soul of a DXpeditioner, Paul. That's taking
advantage of the local environment for sure.

and here's my solution for the winter. (Link to picture at the end
of this email!)

I filled a trash can with water, put the 5 foot long 1 1/4" PVC pipe
in one corner of the trash can and had the trash can flush with the
side of my porch wall then I left the trash can out overnight.

I then brought the ice filled trash can to be bottom of my 3 steps,
put it in the red plastic sled and pull the sled 150 feet up the
KSKO driveway by strings attached to the end of the sled.

That's one majorly solid chunk of ice and since McGrath, Alaska
won't see above freezing temperatures for any length of time till
April or so, I'm good for awhile.

That sled holds my radio and recording gear... load up the sled and
take it down the KSKO driveway to my "listening post", which is the
two totes stacked on top of each other.
