There are EVA's going on.

All the Amateur transmitters are off for safety reasons, like they  
always are during EVA activity, I assume.

You won't see ISS on the ham bands again until after the Shuttle leaves.

If you weren't aware the Shuttle is there, they're doing some rather  
interesting repairs on a damaged solar array... worth catching up on,  
if you haven't been watching the space news.
