FWIW I am hoping that a current project takes off where I will be
responsible for the computer / internet side.
A well-situated 10m dish will be used for EME and satellites, if I get my
act together (and get an excellent web-programmer friend interested) then it
will be available via internet with both audio and video feeds.
I do agree that the most interesting thing about satellites is building a
station (and writing the software).
Myself I am looking forward to P3E to use from home.
