MCA/Coastguard VHF log

Can anyone tell me if the MCA or Coastguard have an online log of realtime VHF/DSC distress calls that I can access?

Not aware of anything official.
Ship-tracking.co.uk have a receiver at Ryde that records all DSC messages in its area (so close to you). Very little DSC activity gets recorded though..?
Doesn't show a voice only message though.

Thanks for the info guys, handy info for DSC. However I was trying to follow up a voice call Mayday relay I heard yesterday. I was hoping there would be an accessible channel 16 Coastguard log for interested public peeps.

Surely this would breach "the secrecy of correspondence " VHF thingy?

Have a look at your VHF SRC paperwork. I don't see an exception there...

If it was handled by an RNLI or Local Inshore Service they generally list shouts on their websites. If the helo handled it then unless CG decide to issue a press release which is usually only (1) if they want to point out how stupid people are or (2) point out how important their rescue services are. So if it was reasonably mundane they usually don't bother...

Sorry - does the OP mean actual recordings of the VHF transmissions from the emergencies, or a list detailing the nature of the emergencies. I may have misread the question as I thought it referred to the former.
