 Does that mean I should design my antennas for low F/B ratio? (hi hi)

 Eventually the earth's magnetic poles will flip and you will be

Good thing HF antennas generally have relatively wide beam width if you use

This also has a subtle effect on propagation paths through the polar areas,
depending upon your location.
