Thank you for the update. Was the transponder ever part of the design, or
was there a misunderstanding in the IARU filing?

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.
Format is:
More information will be available soon.

 Shin-En 2 is going to be launched with Hayabusa-2 from Japan early November
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!
