More to the UK MW history
Langley Mill 1152, which started as BRMB Radio, is the first of the original batch of heritage UK ILR transmitters that have been on air since 1974.
Sedgley 990 khz was on air from 1976 but was the last of the first wave of ILRs. Sedgley 990 was Beacon Radio. This closed on 30 April.
Rainford 1546 was Radio City.
But most of the remaining MW heritage sites for ILR have stayed the same. Exceptions were London Lot’s Road which moved to Saffron Green and Rainford that changed to Bebington on 1994. That TX closed on 31 May 2020.

It seems that KUAM Isla 63 (630 kHz) in Guam has gone silent as per May 1st 2020.
Fortunately, 567 KHz KGUM (10 kW) Guam is still on air.

I live in the DG3 post code area and can confirm the closure message loop was still running on the BBC Radio Scotland 585kHz frequency at 6pm on June 11th, serving parts of the Dumfries and Galloway (D&G) region.
The 810kHz transmission from Westerglen is audible in parts of the region for BBC Radio Scotland, but unlike the 585kHz frequency, it does not provide the D&G regional opt out service!
The Sandale transmitter in Cumbria and its D&G subordinates carry BBC Radio Scotland’s FM service, including the D&G opt outs. There is no local DAB multiplex within D&G.

I can confirm the announcement on 585kHz Dumfries [BBC Radio Scotland] appeared on 9 June 2020.
I do not yet know the date it is being turned off.
