Looks like there are only three folks on the ISS now:

Commander Gennady Padalka, RN3DT
Scott Kelly
Mikhail Kornienko, RN3BF

Kelly is not a ham, right? So since Field Day is a US/CA event mostly,
it's very unlikely the Russians will get on, right?

P.S. I found this video of Astronaut Reid Wiseman talking about his
field day contacts from last year. One thing I found especially
interesting is that he said afterwards he got on for random contacts
about once a week. I didn't hear anyone reference this in previous
correspondence on the topic. [1] [2] It's always exciting to hear of
increased possibilities.

P.P.S Here is a teaser video I made of an SO-50 pass I recorded for a
new YouTube channel I am slowly creating
