[time-nuts] GPS timing receivers

Or see the Locus receivers, they are multi-chain.

I inquired about their CsSync 1030 with H-field antenna, and found it
beyond my means: USD $6000 :(

Very few LORAN-C receivers are multi-chain.

I belive the Austron 5000M was multi-chain (and took a PDP/11 ?)

Megapulse have some multi-chain receivers as well.

I don't think I've seen any other.
