I don't know that you'd hear that much, given that many airlines use ACARS to better utilize the frequencies. I diverted three tonight and didn't talk to a single one of them, doing it all via messages...

UA flights West of
ORD can voice call dispatch on 131.050 and for flights East of ORD 131.400. Frequencies cover about 200-300nm around the Chicago area depending on altitude.
However like OPNLguy states much of the comms these days are via ACARS.
Also might want to listen to Arinc frequencies for airlines that do not have own radio networks or make use of ACARS.
