I have had two replies to say that the MLS project has been cancelled in
favour of a (to be developed) GPS based system.

Mike Friedman tells me that a prototype system was installed at Lebanon,
New Hampshire. Bill Nash reckons that he read of its demise in AOPA
Pilot magazine - web page http://www.aopa.org/, although, at a quick
glance, that doesn't seem to offer back copies.

Many thanks.

Jon Campbell.
