New data processing algorhithms have been applied; quality controlled wave data are now available. 

25/08/2011 The telemetry from Herne Bay has been replaced and the met station and receiver station have been re-located to the Bandstand, due to refurbishment of the pier buildings. 
04/01/2011 It appears that the data transmission problem is linked to the telemetry system, which has been in place since 1996.  A replacement is being sourced from the manufacturer as a matter of priority.
03/12/2010 Data reception and quality has been very poor for the past few days.  The problem appears to be related to the very cold weather and is being investigated.
23/03/2010 Scheduled service and Etrometa section swap.
26/08/2009 Etrometa serviced, installation of air pressure and air temperature sensors.
17/12/2008 Scheduled Service.
04/01/2008 Poor data reception, spurious data points
