The idea is to get people hooked on satellite operating and then have
them "graduate" to more challenging aspects of satellite operating.

AMSAT is, of course, working on projects that be more of a technical
challenge than FM satellites, like Fox-1E with a linear transponder
and the geosynchronous P4B project.
