It depends on the crew how active the ISS is. The current crew is not
very active. When they are, you can find them on 2 meters. 
Frequency and additional information on the ISS amateur radio operations
is available at http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/reference/radio/.
The crew's schedule is often available at
http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/timelines/index.html to give
you an idea of when they are awake.

Subject: [amsat-bb] ISS crew ham contacts?

I didn't follow the satellite and related chat lately. I just wanted
to know if voice contacts in the amateur bands from ISS crew are
common or not. And if they do use amateur radio, what band is used?
What are the best UTC interval to catch them?
Thanks in advance and best regards
