Of the satellites Below

Kagayaki <http://www.sorun.co.jp/kagayaki/top.html>
 STARS <http://stars1.eng.kagawa-u.ac.jp/english/index.html>
KKS-1 <http://www.kouku-k.ac.jp/%7Ekks-1/kks-gs-top-e.htm>
PRISM <http://www.space.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp/prism/main-e.html>

Do any of them carry a transponder?  if not what's to be excited about?
