Morlocks. Definitely Morlocks.

The Eloi were a small, childlike, beautiful people, spending their days playing, dancing, and swimming in the sunlight, and eating a healthy diet of fruit, but with the mental age of three year olds.

The Morlocks, on the other hand, dwelt in dark gloomy underground chambers, with white, pasty, flabby bodies, emerging only at night, and living on a diet of greasy flesh. But they were also the more technically adept and intelligent species.

So I think it's obvious which group resembles ham radio operators. Of course, hams aren't into the cannibalism thing, like the Morlocks were, but that's probably only because we haven't run out of hamfest hotdogs yet.

For those totally perplexed by this thread: it's a reference to H.G. Wells' book "The Time Machine".

"...but that's probably only because we haven't run out of hamfest hotdogs yet."

Yes but what about that rumor as to where those hotdogs came from.  I mean, you don't see very many CBers at ham fests anymore so the answer is probably obvious.  I mean, do I need to spell it out to you!
