Besides all the purdy graphs, perhaps the 'real question' in all of this: "How many db above background noise level can one safely operate a wireless mic?  10db? 20db? 30db? 40db?"

It looks like I can possibly place the ew300 on a stand just to the left of the console, in cases where I can't have it on stage.

For the last year or so I have been doing events for a particular customer where I must keep all the electronics inside my trailer to protect the gear.  My GLD is about 24" from the wireless mics and the two amp racks.  For wireless I use either ULXP or MiPro.  In most instances the MiPro seem to be better except in the trailer with the other gear right there.  Generally speaking my range using plain old 1/2 wave antenna is about 100-150' with the ULXP where as I only get about 100' max with the MiPro at these events.  I don't hear any of the RF noise in the system however I can see it on the RX meters.  For high end musical events I would prefer not to have the wireless receivers that close to the console but you do what you have to do.  These ones are just an emcee talking and it is just fine.

Did you try measuring close to the Cat5? I was at a manufacturer training seminar (Lectro, maybe - they're doing a lot of Dante) and they recommended shielded Cat5 to keep the RF from radiating.

I used unshielded Cat 5 for the connections between the ew300 and the WAP.  dSNake was on the short purple cord that comes with the GLD.  Dante card wasn't connected for these tests.

I didn't explicitly test proximity to Dante and DSnake cables.
