Two very good sources come to mind and there are many others..

Gordon West Radio School | 714-549-5000 | Ham It Up!

American Radio Relay League | ARRL - The national association for AMATEUR RADIO

All though the info above is mainly Amateur Radio oriented..IMHO..learning the basic electrical theories and regulations put licensed amateurs above those that just simply get a marine SSB station license. It will pay dividends in the long run not only maintaining and operating a ships HF radio but also understanding and trouble shooting ships electrical problems.
