I remember reading a story when I was a kid (this must have been roughly between 1980 and 1990) which focussed on the ability for humans to teleport at will.
If I remember correctly, there's a fad in the story about some sort of radio receiver which supposedly enables people to hear some cosmic message and learn something about it.
The hero is sent to investigate the claim undercover as some people have mysteriously disappeared. While doing so, he learns that the receiver enables people to teleport, although some can't handle the process properly and die in the process (they teleport away but can't teleport air in their place, resulting in an implosive vacuum).
The people who do succeed to teleport form a secret society in order to keep the knowledge from falling into bad hands, and actively work towards peace by teleporting weapons away (in the sun or something).
Does this story ring a bell to anyone? I wouldn't mind re-reading it.
Edit: to clarify, the ability to teleport is purely mental; the radio receiver isn't what's teleporting; rather, it sorts of download the instructions in the brain.
