Is anyone Hearing or Making any Voice Contacts with ISS?

I have been trying for many ISS passes, over the last few days to make voice contacts on 2 meter 144.490 tx and 145.800 Rx using a 3 element yagi and a kenwood TM-261 with no luck of hearing a transmission or making a contact. I am new to this. Is anyone having any luck? Maybe I am doing something wrong? Are they not just communicating right now? I am using this site for Keps and also HRD, and there seems to be a difference in the time frame of the two models, one being ahead of the other. Any advice as to make these contacts with ISS would be greatly appreciated, i.e. specs etc.
