Would one of our Indonesian friends be able to give us an update on the
upcoming launch of their satellite?

that they are preparing for a launch at the end of September. This seems to
line up with the Astrosat PSLV-XL C30 launch. I can't decipher if it is just
for A2, or for LAPANSAT-ORARI, or if the satellites have been combined now?
Is http://www.amsatuk.me.uk/iaru/finished_detail.php?serialnum=152 still
correct as to modes and frequencies?

 

If the 650km, 8 degree inclination orbit is still correct, this will be a
very interesting satellite for those below 30 degrees N and S latitudes, but
unusable for those further north.
