You would need a shortwave radio that has AM capabilities
in the 4 Mhz band.

But you can easily find the 1 Mhz oscillator here.

Yes, if the radio receives CW or AM in that band.

The radio will say on it that it receives AM.
If it receives CW, it will have a Beat Frequency Oscillator
(sometimes labelled BFO).
