The antenna looks 145/437 doesn't it. They are manifested on an Interorbital Systems launch http://www.interorbital.com/ but when the launch will take place is unknown, presumably a year or more from now.
It's a 310 km orbit so would only operate for a few weeks before burning up.

This is a bit outside of the realm of traditional amateur satellite
launches but I found it to be very interesting nonetheless. Some fans of a
popular scifi show have raised the money to launch a replica of the show's
time-and-space traveling ship into orbit this fall. From what I know of it
so far, it will but a fully functioning sat within a very unusual chassis
and will feature a GoPro camera mounted inside with the intention to
transmit photos back to earth. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble finding
any real technical information on this "blue bird" but maybe someone here
knows more about it? All I could find was a very brief spec sheet.
Here's a link to their KickStarter page as well as their official website.
