Shortwave radio operates between the frequencies of 1700 kHz and 30 MHz (30,000 kHz) and is named because of its relatively short wavelengths. An alternate name is HF, or high frequency.
Some frequencies of Shortwave are capable of reaching the other side of the planet by bouncing a signal off the ionosphere. 

.         

There are several classes of primary users of the shortwave radio band:
  • Domestic broadcasting countries with a widely-dispersed population with few   long wave , medium wave  or FM stations serving them
  • International broadcasting to foreign audiences
  • Utility stations transmitting messages not intended for a general public, such as aircraft flying between continents, encoded or ciphered diplomatic messages,   weather reporting, or ships at sea
  • Ham Radio operators
