Spacewalks are easy to monitor. Your regular 2m antenna will work.
In the UK we get some interference from Air band Communications but can generally get a good part of the conversation.
Note - It only works with the Russian spacesuits. American suits use a different system.

I'm sure you don't mean "intercept" but monitor.
Have a look at this page http://www.orbitessera.com/html/space_shuttle.html
Has the frequencies listed--never tried to copy them myself.
