JAXA announced CubeSats deploy from ISS with J-SSOD at 17th Sep.
CubeSat name is not shown on the announce. However, NASA's ISS On-
Orbit Status Report 09/09/15 shows the followings;

JAXA-Small Satellite Orbital Deployer (SSOD) #4 Install: Kelly
installed the J-SSOD#4 on the Slide Table with the Multi-Purpose
Experiment Platform (MPEP) attached.  The J-SSOD #4 has two satellites
 that will be deployed next week.  The first satellite is designed to
observe the Ultraviolet (UV) spectrum during the Orionid meteor shower
 in October.  The second satellite, sponsored by the University of
Brasilia and the Brazilian government focuses on meteorological data

So, the first one must be S-CUBE and the second is SERPENS.

SERPENS operates on amateur band. IARU Satellite Frequency
Coordination page show
  Downlink: 145.980MHz 1k2 and 437.365MHz 9k6

S-CUBE seems not operate amateur band.
