The NasaSpaceFlight.com Indian Launch Schedule forum is suggesting: 
September 28 or 30 - PSLV (XL) C30 SLP- AstroSat-1 + LAPAN-A2 (Indonesia) +2 x NLS (Canada) + 4 x Lemur (UK) 

which implies LAPAN-ORARI is not on that launch.

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


I see from https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto

and https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1

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.
