Wave and tide data are measured using a Rosemount WaveRadar Rex, which was installed on 26 August 2005. 

22/06/2017 The met station has stopped working. A new Vaisala met unit will be installed at the end of the summer.
04/01/2017 The thermometer on the met station is broken. A new one has been ordered. 
28/12/2016 There is a problem with power at the pier, which is now under repair
Scheduled service of wave radar and met station
01/04/2014 The data gap from 1100 yesterday to 1030 today was due to a power fault
03/01/2014 The pier suffered a power outage for a couple of hours this afternoon due to an electrical storm
23/12/2013 Rental unit swapped out.
10/12/2013 A hire REX has been installed until the original is returned from the manufacturer following repair works
12/11/2013 REX currently offline following water ingression until remedial works can be carried out
09/05/2011 Phone line re-instated
06/05/2011 The phone line has been cut off.  It will be re-instated as soon as possible
23/07/2010 Scheduled service
01/05/2010 A fault has developed with the air temperature sensor and, possibly, the wind vane.  The faults are being investigated, but the recent service has not solved the problem and some of the instruments may require replacement.
28/04/2010 The Rex is being serviced (the spikes in the record result from the service procedures)
15/10/2009 WaveRex was serviced, an extensive amount of oxidation was found. A full clean will be done during the next visit.
23/02/2009 Data have been intermittently disrupted due to fluctuating power supply to the Pier.
16/01/2009 WaveRex service, telecommunications check and internet repair.
06/11/2008 Electricty cut off to the pier 08:00 - 12:00
13/03/2008 No data recieved, no phone access.
08/11/2006 The wave processing software has been upgraded to correct the earlier problem. All wave data prior to 1300Z will be corrected and archived via the website's Data Catalogue.
01/08/2006 The wave processing software appears to be under-estimating the significant wave height slightly. This is under investigation.
