If you are using the OS code, then you can simply create a cron job to manually block the nodes you want every hour or so (which allows you to use it with the automatic retest parameter, so you can also have automatic blocking working as well).
The way to do this to edit /hj/buildcrontab which will allow it to persist across reboots - you will need to re-edit this if you upgrade the node, but this is true with any local edits (you can run this into a script to automatically scp the edited files to all nodes after an upgrade).
You can edit MINSIG through wiana (or by editing /etc/wiana.settings). This is what I normally use to stop a node going via a weaker signal. You can have minsig values for individual nodes, which allows you to tweak settings for particular nodes.
