What antenna

I was looking at freq. for listening to the ISS (for North American Great lakes region) I'm assuming downlink 145.800 means the sending freq, and uplink 144.490 means the freq to listen on? If that is the case my 2 meter FM icom will not program splits in that amount of numbers. there might be some way to punch it in manually, but that's really not the topic of this thread. Just need affirmation that those are the correct splits.

I want to know if I even have a chance to make QSO with the ISS with a dual bander vertical 30 foot up a tower? I notice most examples I see on Youtube, and other websites all use handheld yagis.
