Anyone know how I'd go about finding the freqs. and callsigns for the Shuttle missions?

Internet information relating to MIR communications and other shuttle data are endless.
You might want to try      http://www.arrl.org/sarex/mir-faq.html
I like it because it discussed the evolution of amateur radiio communications with the mission and offers suggestions for maintaining contact while MIR sweeps through a specific region.
ARRL's web site provides many links to shuttle related sites.  I found one (sorry I forgot the URL) recently that actually provided real-time tracking information and displayed a graphic with one minute updates showing the MIR position and trajectory.
If I can find it again I'll post a follow-up for you.

There is no more amateur radio activity scheduled for any Shuttle missions (SAREX).  The International Space Station has a permanent station (ARISS) but the activity is limited and predominately targetted for pre-arranged schedules with schools.  MIR is dead and scheduled to be de-orbited in June I believe.
