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.  :)
