The objective of the VHF Data Telemetry system was the collection of continuous raw data from the Solent Sonic anemometer, whist the sensor was deployed at sea, on the Sonic Buoy. The aims of the development project were achieved within short timescales and the successful sea trial proved the overall system operationally viable. The success of the system exceeded that expected, with 98% of data blocks received without errors. Analysis of the data success rates is shown, and areas for future development discussed. The system hardware and the techniques are detailed, also included are the operational notes for upgrading the transmitter EPROM and the closing of data files via the RP link.
