On 13th August 2019 the Newcastle Marine Science team launched an acoustic network gateway buoy in the North Sea approximately 3km NE of Blyth, Northumberland. Equipped with 2 acoustic modems and 2 broadband hydrophones, the buoy will wirelessly relay network data and raw hydrophone signals back to shore.

(The tinkling sound you can hear occasionally is from the mooring chain links. It's often more pronounced at high and low tides, especially if the swell is particularly high.)
