There is plenty of fiber downlink and uplink bw available at the Radio end of the remote connection but am curious of the approximate bw needed to run the 6700, AntennaGenius and PowerGenius XL over Smartlink using the Maestro.  Is 1MB uplink ok as that is about all thats available at camp.

The answer to this question is "it depends".  You have control over the amount of bandwidth sent from the radio to the Maestro (client) by adjusting the panadapter and waterfall frame and refresh rates.  By slowing down the amount of spectrum data you can significantly reduce your bandwidth requirements.  The default settings for one panafall display is approximately 2 mbps.  You can get this well under 1 mpbs by doing the frame rate adjustments.
