Abyss 2 is another name for Shin'En 2 and carries a Mode J linear transponder.
There's another amateur radio satellite expected to be on the same launch in December - ARTSAT2:DESPATCH http://amsat-uk.org/2013/11/03/art-and-ham-radio-in-deep-space/

Abyss-2 - from the Japanese language article it looks like it's carrying an amateur radio payload and will launch this December. Does anyone have any further information ?
Also there appears to be a Japanese Lunar Orbiter under development which will carry an amateur radio transponder
