No, you can do it with shortwave but I think you are referring to bandwidth which would be greater than the lower frequencies but that just lest you pack more stations in (if only they didnt do that, DAB might sound god and even be in stereo). The higher frequency was used because its very localised so that you can cover the nation and find it easier to avoid overlap. Also the spectrum was available.
