The buoy had been picked up earlier that day from General Dynamics in San Diego. This was the first of five such buoys which were deployed by Yocona from 1975-77 throughout the eastern Pacific from the Gulf of Alaska to Baja California. Each buoy was anchored in the open ocean with an anchor chain and miles of nylon rope. These five buoys were the first Pacific weather buoys used to collect weather data in the open ocean and transmit the data via satellite to the National Weather Service in New Orleans.||Photo - US Coast Guard Historian's Office
