It's OMEGA not LORAN. Try FairRadio or Google for it. OMEGA was in the
10-25 KHz region. LORAN-C was 100 KHz. WWVB is 60 KHz.
You might be better off starting from scratch.
> Subject: Looking for Tracor 599 VLF Receiver Manual
> I have acquired a Tracor Series 599 VLF Tracking Receiver system that
> I'd like to use for WWVB reception.
> I'm curious if anyone has, or knows of, a source of manual(s) for this

> Power Supply 599-502
> Phase Servo 599-402
> AGC-Phase 599-300
> Synthesizer 599-102
> Receiver 599-203
> When I peaked inside the receiver module (the 599-203) I noticed a set
> of octal sockets that I suspect accept old style crystal modules to
> establish (switch selectable) receive frequencies, so my guess is that
> the receiver was set up to receive various Loran stations.
> If anyone has any knowledge regarding this system, or knows of a source
> for a manual, I'd appreciate some feedback.
