To Hop, or not to Hop: that is the question

To hop, or not to hop: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The APPARENT LOSS OF COORDINATED HOPPING,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by posting, end them? To wait: to sleep;
No more. And by a sleep to say we endure
The heart-ache and the thousand shocks
which hams are heir to. 'Tis a consummation
devoutly to be avoid'd...
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;
For in that sleep what spots will come when no one hears your call
Must give us pause: there's the respect
That makes calamity of NO MORE HOPPING.
For what ham could bear this boring tread of time,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare screwdriver? Who would WSPR run,
To dial and tune over an empty band,
But that the dread of something worse than death,
A SIGNAL NO ONE SPOTS,
puzzles the will, and makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of.
Thus WAITING does make cowards of us all;
and the ANTICIPATION OF RESOLUTION is sicklied o'er
with a case of benign neglect,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their talents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.
