Haven’t been able to sleep tonight so I’ve been flicking though live ATC streams. I’ve never tried the “HF Oceanic” frequencies before, as I always assumed they were for ships, but just tried HF ARINC LDOC 6640/11342 in Nova Scotia and came across what sounds like one half of a conversation with an aircraft with an emergency. I can only hear the controller(?)’s voice clearly, and haven’t heard him say a tail number but he has:

listed a lot of flight systems (flight recording units and those sorts of things)

listed weather for Dublin, Shannon, Edinburgh and somewhere else and discussed best options

mentioned he would let London (stanwick?) know of the emergency

This happened between around 5.20-5.30am GMT. The feed now seems to be silent, so I’m wondering if there’s any way to find out more information without having a tail number?

Can you confirm the date and time you heard this ? "Tonight" as in Sep17 (GMT) ? Your post appears to have been sent at 04:55 GMT, before you said you heard this ? I checked the archives from this feed between 03:00 - 06:00 GMT and didn't hear anything ? Or did you mean yesterday Sep16 (GMT) ?

AUG-SEPT there are a lot of emergencies, But most of these are "General" which means problems in flight such as engine trouble and so on
