Well, on the pass about 0100 UTC 4/21 over the east coast of the US, I 
heard a QSO from the ISS on 145.830 FM.  I was tuning around the expected 
frequency of 145.800, but tuned wide and heard them there.  My kids thought 
that was pretty neat hearing them "live", since I had been watching them on 
NASA TV for a good bit today.

Of course I could only hear one side of the conversation, and I heard both 
a female and then a male voice.  They signed "This is the International 
Space Station" a couple of minutes before predicted LOS (hard to keep up 
with keps on this bird!).

Anyhow, the frequency seemed strange to me...
