Further doppler measurements show that TshepisoSat (aka ZACube 1) is object 39417 (2013-066B) and AMSAT-OSCAR 73 (aka FUNCube 1) is object 39444 (2013-066AE). Therefore HiNCube must be object 39445 (2013-066AF).
It is not easy to get a good doppler curve with many Cubesats because of the limited transmissions and because of the frequency drift of their beacon transmitters.
These object IDs from the Dnepr launch seem to be correct, although some still need to be confirmed (tbc):

An update on the satellite IDs.
Still no IDs are available for the satellites launched from the ISS (except TechEdSat 3P) and the Minotaur.
Several IDs have been published for the objects from the Dnepr launch but many need to be confirmed. Still not all TLEs are released.
AMSAT-OSCAR 73, ZACube 1 and HiNCube were launched from the same ISIPOD. As they initially were close together, the JSpOC decided to release only one TLE set for this cluster under object number 39417 (2013-066B). Now the distances between these satellites are slowly increasing. So the question is which satellite is object 39417. Detailed doppler measurements show that ZACube 1 is now about 25 s early compared to the TLE for object 39417, while OSCAR 73 is about 11 s early. This seems to indicate that object 39417 is actually HiNCube. Hopefully TLEs for OSCAR 73 and ZACube 1 will be published soon.
