Yes, skeds are permitted if set up by non-amateur means PRIOR to the
start of Field Day. The "General Rules for All ARRL Contests" apply to
Field Day and prohibit making skeds by non-amateur means during the
contest period.

However, you won't need to set up a sked to make a QSO. All of the
satellites will be packed with stations during Field Day. Just get on
and make QSOs. Please be sure to practice with your equipment before
Field Day.
