Had a few questions for some Flex users... Can the Maestro remote panel be connected directly to the Flex 6400 radio vs using the network to access the radio functions? What is the latency on LAN vs WAN. I know this is probably dependent on internet & personal hardware. I'm curious if using the Maestro console on LAN is acceptable for contesting. Also is it acceptable on WAN, and if so what kinds of internet speeds are required? My radio shack is in an external shed and i'd really like to be able to contest from inside the house occasionally, so my primary desire is to find a radio that shines in the remote department on LAN. My Kenwood TS-590SG specifically states not to use the included program for contesting. I've tried it, and it is a little laggy...all things being the same on the network, why would a Flex be less laggy remote vs my 590SG?
