I think one of the problems volunteers face, which seems to have not been addresses, is one of geography.
The US is a big country. The existing volunteers are widespread. I work better as a member of a team rather than as an induvidual. I need a "normal" work environment. I'm inherently lazy and don't have the motovation to reliably work from home. I don't know of any active Amsat volunteers within, say, 30 miles of me, that I can team up with. Find me a project within 30 miles of Xenia, Ohio, in which I have some experience, and i will happily join the team.
