I would say Nicola Tesla.

I do remember Tesla is recognized as the inventor of the radio by the US, for instance. Obviously, the UK/Italia would say Marconi, and Russia would say Popov.
I don't know about Hertz, though - he's Jewish, so I should vote for him :)

По западной версии Маркони. По русской Попов. Обе версии имеют право на жизнь :)

Marconi? Plus in the fifties Soviet Union claimed priority for a Russian, but I forget his name.
