    I live in the southernmost state of Brasil at a very high latitude, therefore way off the azimuth chosen by WBCQ (Radio Angela). Nevertheless, I got some signal on 4790kHz. The best time to listen to shortwave (LW and MW included) for me is during Fall and beginning of Winter. All bands have much less background noise, so it doesn’t take so much SNR to have intelligible audio.
