VHF Suddenly needs to warm up??

My West Marine VHF radio has worked fine for years. Suddenly nothing happens when I turn it on. If I leave it on for 10 or 15 minutes it suddenly comes on and works fine. It doesn't make any noise (like the beep it usually makes when I turn it on). I simply look over and see that it's suddenly on. I know the power supply is good. Probably not worth fixing (if I could even find a place to fix it). I just wonder what could be wrong. Feels like the old days of tubes!
