Shin-En 2 not have a Mode J transponder.
We can use ‘A system’ for F1D uplink/downlink.
CWID will be transmit by the B system.
More information will be available soon.

Shin-En 2 is going to be launched with Hayabusa-2 from Japan early November 3
0 UTC on an Earth escape trajectory, Along with Artsat-Despatch. Shin-En 2 car
ries a 800mw Mode J transponder and 800mw WSJT beacon. It looks like there wil
l be a pass before it gets too far out right after launch, where the range is
20k-30k km for me in Florida. This will be much, much weaker than FO-29, but i
t might be workable with a AO-13 class station early on the first day or two.
I'll be up for the launch and the first window around 2AM EST on the morning o
f the 1st. It'd be nice to have some stations to work if it's possible!
