Name the scientist whose name begins with ham is ham radio?

There is no scientist named Ham in ham radio. The term was first an insult, like "ham-fisted" (clumsy) or "ham actor" (bad stage actor). Then the radio operators decided to take the name as a source of pride, and found three radio pioneers to say it was named for: The H is for Heinrich Hertz, who did a lot of work with radio frequency energy and for whom the measurement of frequency is named. The A is for Major Edwin Armstrong, who invented frequency modulation. Apparently no one else was available because FM wasn't a popular mode in the amateur service when they borrowed his name. The M is for Guglielmo Marconi, who invented the radio.
