Yes, it is...  Field Day rule 9.2:

9.2. See "General Rules for All ARRL Contests," "General Rules for All ARRL
Contests on Bands Below 30 MHz," and "General Rules for All ARRL Contests on
Bands Above 50 MHz" for additional rules (www.arrl.org/contests/forms ) that
may cover situations not covered in these Field Day rules.

this: Stations are limited to one (1) completed QSO on any single channel
FM satellite.
