[amsat-bb] KKS-1 confusion

Could someone please give me a sanity check..

I am trying to copy CP5, one of the college Cubesats launched yesterday. 
Several times now I have heard towards the end of the pass a weak CW 
beacon.. I finally copied it today and it appears to be the beacon from 
KKS-1. However, if I use the keplerian elements published on 
Space-Track, I get a pass time that is at least a half hour ahead of 
what I am seeing.. can someone give me a sanity check here?

Thanks, and VY 73,
