Happy Birthday Herr Hertz!  However, I'm still not happy that frequency was changed to hertz in your honor.

Hertz demonstrated RF energy (at about 150 MHz) in 1888. By 1899 wireless telegraphy was being used in the Boar War.

Google Doodle honored Hz two days ago.

Subject of who invented radio is quite complex:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invention_of_radio

I don't see that Prof. Hz ever made a "contact." His was a lab experiment seen mainly as a way of proving Maxwell's equations.

Who was the first ham, who made a two way contact outside a lab? I don't know. 
Perhaps http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Edward_Hughes
