I was given a Motorola Triton II VHF Marine radio (model - H5057A).  The radio works but I would like to find an Operator's Manual for it. I have googled it and was not able to find any online source.

It has some odd features such as some channels are Low Power only and I am not sure if it is a feature or a malfunction.

I know it is a long shot but I thought I would give it a try.

You might try a google of "Radio Manuals"

Be prepared to pay for a copy.

Hi Clint.  Assuming you've not already done so, try www.batlabs.com.  Lots of old Motorola manuals there.

The low power channels are by design, not a flaw.  On VHF Marine band radios, the low power channels are designated for special close-in operations like "in harbor" and "bridge-to-bridge".  Meant to be that way.
