ISS Commander Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, with the assistance of NASA’s Rick Mastracchio, successfully berthed the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft at the space station at 9:06 a.m. EDT today. The mission is the company's third cargo delivery flight to the station. Dragon's cargo will support more than 150 experiments to be conducted by the crews of ISS Expeditions 39 and 40.

Included in the payload are five CubeSats, including KicksSat - which carries 104 Sprite satellites on 437 MHz. The mission  was launched on Friday, April 18 at 19:25:22 UT.

Here is how to set up a ground station for this project ...

https://github.com/zacinaction/kicks...Ground-Station

All the Sprites operate on a single frequency of 437.240 MHz and use Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA). The transmitter runs 10 mW output of Minimum Shift Keying (MSK) modulated binary data with each data bit modulated as a 511 bit Pseudo-Random Number (PRN) sequence. The ITU emission designator is 50K0G1D.
