The two ANDE satellites (Castor and Pollux) will be deployed
from the Space Shuttle now that it has separated from the ISS.
Both satellites will be transmitting on 145.825 MHz. Castor will
transmit telemetry every 30 seconds. Pollux every 33 seconds.
Both are transmitting 1200 baud AX.25 packet  Telemetry.

Most of the info is on the website:

Other than that, I don't have much detail information since this
was built by a different team than our original ANDE project.
The amateur payloads were developed by the Amateur Radio Club at
the Naval Research Labs and got a ride on the ANDE spheres like
we did a few years ago.
