The mass of wave records taken off the beach at Reggio Calabria enables us to verify a few recent theories on the wind generated waves. In particular, in line with the quasi-determinism theory, we find that the highest waves of each sea state exhibit a well defined period which is related to the autocovariance function. Also the recent concept of indeterminacy of the continuos spectrum is confirmed. The effects of this indeterminacy prove to be more relevant when the line spectrum has two peaks nearly equivalent to each other.
