XTREME MJ survives Hurricane Irma! Read one customer's experience (September 2017):
"We've owned a Bad Boy (Xtreme) MJ for about 3 years now, and it has been a highly valuable device on board. We've got it installed at the top of the mast, riveted in on the provided L bracket. We are located in St Maarten where we recently took a huge Category 5 direct hit with over 200MPH/360KPH winds. I'm happy to report the Bad Boy, with antenna, is still mounted at the top of the mast. Suffice to say, your product is pretty robust. Thanks again!" - Derek, s/y ARAVILLA

If you can find a better price for a complete system similar to Xtreme, we will better it by 10%!
