Somewhere else I posted that 500 khz may be chosen as an international heritage frequency for radio amateurs and I think it was Troppo who was more au fait on the situation replied it was going to be taken over by Navtex.
As a licenced amateur I would have been equally as happy for 500 to have become part of the the international radio amateur band plan.
Interest in LF radio is high and there have been temporary licences issued for 500 khz.
Exceptionally the Spanish put out a 500 khz beacon EA3WX which was heard all over Europe.
