If the open end is, in fact *OPEN*, then use a quarter-wave.  If it's
shorted, then use a half-wave.  You can "snip" the quarter-wave stub 
a little at a time to find the "sweet spot", or insert a pin through 
a half-wave stub to do likewise.  Either stub will represent a very low
Z at the opposite end, and attenuate the undesired signal as a result.
