Ok, this afternoon, I had three more hits:

351.95 (This was probably just Air Traffic Control, this is a known RCAG freq for Chicago Center)
363.35

I recorded hits this morning on 282.825 and 245.00 at around 7:30 CST this morning. RSSI is 0 from my 780XLT with a discone 15 feet in the air, north burbs of Chicago. I did not actually hear the transmission.
