The results from the November Sweepstakes will show the number of hours each 
participant spent making QSOs (as did last years).   It isn't an exact number, 
just the number of hours - calculated based on log data, so doesn't include 
listening time.  Even so, it might be very useful for the kinds of comparisons 
being talked about.   For instance, it appears I was beaten badly by NN1N in 
the "2 hour category" in CW SS.   

I don't know if having the hours listed for the ARRL DX Contest or any others 
are in the works, but that might help with comparisons - and that's really what 
the discussion is about I think
