    the correct answer is – both of them! Actually, to be correct THREE of them – the third being Heinrich Hertz. (the dude kiloHERTZ + megaHERTZ were named after) This chicken vs egg question has been around since radio was invented. Marconi & Tesla has different objectives in their experiments & both were successful in achieving the desired results. It’s really a question of non-verifiable dates as to which one actually radiated a wireless transmission first. However, all three made enormous contributions to what would become radio through their different experiments and equipment used. I suppose Francis Ronalds, the inventor of the electric telegraph; Samuel Morse whose ‘Morse code’ would be the first de facto means of transmitting a signal; & Alexander Graham Bell inventor of the telephone who developed a means of voice modulation based on tiny vibrations also deserve a small piece of the “inventor of radio” credits. In essence, radio was really more of a collaboration than an invention as it involved the proven principles of all of the above. Nice ‘trick question’ Jason!
