Its free to try it...couple of good US passes during Field Day.

Is the voice freq still split, with up 144.490 for US and 145.800 downlink?

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.

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
