Emphasizing the word "largely," I think you're right about US SW 
programming.  Canadian SW includes a number of shortwave repeaters of 
AM stations, which can still be heard, mostly in the daytime, and the 
former CBC Northern Service, now known as the Northern Quebec 
Service, which used to be easy to monitor in the US, but which must 
be using more directional transmitters now because I can't hear them 
any more.
