If AMSAT asks for volunteers its usually for newsletters, booth duty or web 
site maintenance. The AMSAT BoD raises money, provides it to groups doing 
development of amateur satellites and provides general services like this 
mailing list. In my experience, satellites are developed by dedicated teams 
that will ask for volunteers for specific tasks. For example, I was a 
volunteer for Eagle U-band receiver development. AMSAT might have passed on 
a name and the position had already been filled.
