I really, really like seeing the number of op hours shown. It helps me to see how I'm doing, sometimes worse than I thought.

It doesn't have to be super precise. The nearest hour is probably good enough.

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
