    Does anyone know what the current plan tiers and pricing are for Mobile Threat Net (WxWorx)? I noticed my monthly bill went up to $89.97. My unit is now showing data consistent with the old Master Mariner plan (radar and lightning) but not the Responder (no satellite and SPC outlooks). Master Mariner used to be $49 and the Responder was $99. I knew the plans changed a while ago, but I never could confirm the numbers.

    I have been unsuccessful in finding this information online anywhere. I also emailed Baron support a week ago but haven't received a response. Anyone from Baron lurking Stormtrack?

    My unit is off right now. I usually turn it on in the Spring. A new unit and 6 months service was given away at Chasercon 2019, but they didn't have their booth. I was hoping to chat about some technical issues with their rep. They were absent in 2017, don't know about 2018. I was able to find their website with unit pricing packages a few weeks ago but didn't look for the various service levels.

    I heard back from Baron and Sirius. It turns out that Sirius XM switched me to a quarterly billing instead of monthly, which is why my bill was $89.97. Baron said the Threat Net plan tiers and pricing are still the same:

    Sailor - $29.99/month
    Master Mariner - $49.99/month
    Responder - $99.99/month

    I am seeing lightning data now with the Sailor plan, which is a new thing. Used to be you had to have Master Mariner for that.

    Dan, could you DM me on here, or on Discord, regarding the plans? I can't seem to get anyone at Baron to ask about this whole deal.
