With or without engine running???

if only with engine running...charging or ignition circuit may have an issue...in the past it was spark plugs, alternator going bad....

if with engine off (including any other electrical generating devices even such as cell phone chargers)...could be a couple internal issues with radio...not positive myself but have read about frequency drift as radio warms up (gets worse after time), also failure of small components (filters) on circuit boards....I'm assuming you mean on the boat you have had for awhile...not a larger boat with AC electrical system ....
