Chapman, Allen: The Radio Boys Trailing a Voice, v1, 18th Feb 2019

This is the fifth book in the juvenile "Radio Boys" series, published by Grosset and Dunlap in 1922. There are 13 books in the series, but this is the last one that's currently available at PG. Hopefully book #6, published in 1923, will become available before too long. The publisher's advertisement described the series as follows:

"Here is a series that gives full details of radio work both in sending and receiving--how large and small sets can be made and operated, and with this real information there are stories about the Radio Boys and their adventures. Each story is a record of thrilling adventures--rescues, narrow escapes from death, daring exploits in which radio play a main part. Each volume is so thoroughly fascinating, so strictly up-to-date, and accurate that all modern boys will peruse them with delight. Each volume has a forward by Jack Binns, the well known radio expert."

"Who the heck is Jack Binns?" Glad you asked! Over a century ago, New York held a parade to honour Jack Binns, the 24-year-old British wireless operator of the White Star liner Republic, whose quick thinking and persistence helped save scores of lives when the liner was rammed by a cargo ship in the freezing water off the coast of Nantucket on the early morning of January 23, 1909. Binns continued to work as a radio operator until 1912, when he turned down an assignment on the ill-fated Titanic, after which he took up a career in journalism and writing forewords to the Radio Boys series for Edward Stratemeyer.

The original description of the book is:

The Radio Boys are listening to a concert when they suddenly switch to a private message, given in disconnected words which apparently have no meaning. But they recognize the voice as that of a man who in the past had led a shady life. Later on the lads hear of a number of thefts of automobiles, and then a big truck containing goods belonging to the father of one of the boys is held up and looted. At last the lads follow a man through the woods, see him use a radio receiving set fastened to a tree, and later, obtain a note-book containing the mysterious code.

Converted and cleaned up from the original PG source, and the original cover added.

Enjoy!
