I made voice contact with the ISS for the first time about two weeks ago. It was awesome, especially considering that it is traveling at over 17,000 mph only 2 miles overhead--if the information on Wikipedia is accurate.

I found an application for my Droid phone for tracking satelites that is simple and easy to use...

My wife made contact with the ISS a couple of days ago on a 25 Watt base with an indoor j-pole--took the tower down last week in anticipation of our move to full-time RV! 9 days to go!
