According to the latest announcement, there will be a one event downlink on
437.550 MHz. This should add it to SATPC32:

If you are going to be listening for ARISSat-1 on the 12th, and use SATPC32,
you will be using the ISS for antenna tracking, but you will need to add a
few modes in the DOPPLER.SQF file for the ISS:
If you use something other than ISS, such as Zarya, then substitute that so
SATPC32 will know what you mean.
These will appear along with all the "real" ISS modes. The FM frequencies
should be good, and the SSB modes as usual will need a little tweaking.
Assuming your rig is calibrated, you should be at least close enough to hear
the short transmit periods.
73s and good luck,
