Who invented the walkie-talkie?

Walkie-talkies (originally called two-way radios or "pack sets") were invented in 1937 by Canadian Donald Hings (1907–2004) and, around the same time, by American inventor Alfred Gross (1918–2000). Both men saw their inventions developed for military use during World War II; both went on to devise numerous other inventions: Gross is credited with inventing pagers, which were a popular way of staying in touch on the move before cellphones became ubiquitous, while Hings developed numerous improvements to radio, radar, magnetic ground-surveying devices, and equipment for measuring air pollution (he has 39 different inventions listed at the US Patent and Trademark Office).
