I dont know anyone that is serious about contesting in the northeast that
is optimizing antennas with no concern for F/B. Everyone I know is
trying to maximize it.
If I lived there, I'de be trying to make the W4's as weak as possible.
That way when you need a good frequency, you can just find a W4 and
start CQing until he goes away. Sorry if this breaks any copy right laws
of the YCCC, FRC, or PVRC. :)
