Not sure what contest's results are being looking at.  
For example, ARRL and CQ do not publish hours operated 
in their big DX contests. ARRL did as of 1999,


(page 4)

but no longer.  In 1999 there were apparently a great 
number of logs (mine included) where the operator 
failed to indicate the operating time (it doesn't 
matter for the results) and the ARRL had no choice but 
to publish "48" as the time.  My guess is that problem 
is one reason why they gave it up listing the time.
