         There were a group of "Midnight Specials" -- limited time 
contests, mostly an hour on each of two bands, some a combo of phone and 
CW.  Some were announced in QST, some were announced other ways such as a 
CD bulletin.  Scoring was just a list of reported scores.  These did not 
use the Sprint format (at least not the ones I participated in).  They 
happened on various evenings at different times, depending upon the bands 
involved.  Much fun; little sweat.  Then there were the Utah 160 Meter
