It's always a possibility Trevor, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up. 
There are other similar satellites that I've seen reference to being in 
development, but other than using 145/435 for command and control, I've 
seen no reference to an open two-way package.

For what it may be worth, last year as part of the AMSAT-NA Engineering 
Task Force, I approached Eurockot about availability of a secondary 
launch to a high LEO. Rokot launches out of Plesetsk routinely go to 
that type of orbit for Kosmos and Gonets launches, and indeed 
Yubileiniy-1 was on one of these. The answer was far from encouraging.
