Absolutely correct!

AMSAT has little money, relatively speaking for the satellite industry, as
it is.  Why spend several million or even several hundred thousand dollars
for a satellite usable by only part of the world, when that money can go
into a bird people the world over can use.  It's a matter of economics and
scarce resources.
