Questions on shortwaves etc ... for anyone who knows and can answer ..
1 - Is there a master list of shortwave frequencies?
2 - Is it by region or is it good for everywhere?
3 - Where can it be obtained?
4 - Our old shortwave frequency book is 15-20 years old. It came with the shortwave. Is it still any good or do the frequencies change?
5 - I'm specifically interested in Emergency Management due to Hurricane Earl. Does anyone know the frequencies to listen to .. FEMA .. WEATHER ... EBS etc? Are they the same frequencies for someone in Delaware as they are in ... oh ... say ... Maine or something?
6 - I looked up frequencies with google. Got some info, but not a lot. Anyone have any tips .. frequency tips ... etc?
7 - Anyone know if Coast to Coast is on shortwave? Just wondering ...
Kinda figured it would be. It's their kind of thing.

Yes, there are lists. Some much better than others. All have their own problems. Stations seem to bounce around on different frequencies so the best choice is to receive the schedule directly from the station of interest.
The station broadcast to areas of the world, but there is massive over coverage or the antennas just aren't tuned right, mis-directed, etc; you can hear many stations that you shouldn't hear if you follow their schedule and coverage area. You will quickly find out about this by listening and logging the stations.
