The SpinSat team certainly applied to the IARU Satellite Frequency Coordination Panel for a 437 MHz frequency http://www.amsatuk.me.uk/iaru/finished_detail.php?serialnum=268
Of course that doesn't necessarily mean that the amateur payload made it into the completed satellite.
As you say the satellite has 6 months of battery power only, no solar panels. Since the amateur payload is a secondary mission objective they may wish to complete the primary mission first before activating it.

I think the reports of a 9600 bps transmitter on the amateur bands was
wrong. No documentation I've found about the satellite indicates it
carries a transmitter there. Plus it has no solar panels.
Here's the mission overview:
