There have been some significant changes to the identification of the
satellites launched from the ISS on 1-16-2017. The best guess as to who is
who comes from Nico Janssen PA0DLO (with comment from Mike, DK3WM) as shown
CAT ID NAME
41930 OBJECT 41930 (Not Known at this time)
41931 Tancredo 1
41934 OBJECT 41934 (Not Known at this time)
41937 OBJECT A
41938 OBJECT B
The OBJECT NAME associated with the NORAD CAT ID's above does not match the
NORAD's SATNAME as shown on the SpaceTrack website. This is due to NORAD
still using the SATNAME they orginally guessed soon after launch. It is
possible to see more changes as the objects separate more.
Per Nico Janssen,PA0DLO 1-26-2017 on AMSAT-BB:

The following satellites were launched from the Internationa Space Station
(ISS) on Monday, January 16, 2017. The satellites were launched from the new
JEM Small Satellite Orbital Deployer (J-SSOD). The satellite names
associated with the NORAD CAT ID may change as these objects separate and
can be more easily tracked individually. We will start with the names used
by SpaceTrack and see what happens. (Thanks to AMSAT-UK for info.)
CAT ID SATNAME
Note: EGG (Object 41933) does not carry amateur radio and will be removed as
soon as all objects/names are confirmed. Object 41934 is a 3U satellite
(three individual satellites permanently stuck together) and it consists of
TUPOD, Tancredo1, and a non-amateur cubesat OSNSAT.
