Dick Tracy Wiki

Bob was a young ham radio enthusiast and friend of Junior Tracy.

When Dick Tracy was stranded on the Granite Island during the incident with Miss Egghead, the detective was only able to get intermittent reception on his 2-Way Wrist Radio. At one point, Tracy found himself in brief communication with Bob, though they could only speak for a few moments before the signal cut out.

Bob notified Junior, who had been about Tracy being missing for long. Junior informed the police, and the search to rescue Tracy was begun in earnest. Bob continued to monitor his radio equipment, hoping that he might be able to contact Tracy again, but he did not have any success.
