Some more oldies, but goodies

This list was posted on QRP-L by Mike Olbrisch KD5KC - The Radio Boys series.  These books are in the same genre as The Hardy Boys or Tom Swift, but these deal with "wireless" and go back to the early 1920s when Amateur Radio was still in its infancy.

For those of you with a kindle, these can be download for FREE from Amazon.

1. The Radio Boys’ First Wireless

2. The Radio Boys at Ocean Point

3. The Radio Boys at the Sending Station

4. The Radio Boys at Mountain Pass

5. The Radio Boys Trailing a Voice

6. The Radio Boys on the Mexican Border

7. The Radio Boys on Secret Service Duty

8. The Radio Boys in the Thousand Islands

9. The Radio Boys’ Search for the Inca’s Treasure

10. The Radio Boys Rescue the Lost Alaska Expedition

11. Radio Boys Cronies

12. Radio Boys Loyalty: Bill Brown Listens In

13. The Radio Boys with the Revenue Guards

So yeah, the stories are a bit campy, perhaps and the language and slang is old - but what the heck? They're free and they're almost 100 years old!

I downloaded them all to my kindle and am enjoying them. I hope you will, too!
