Meshphone VOIP Network¶
"N2MH MeshPhone℠ is my contribution to providing a service over the Amateur radio mesh network. N2MH MeshPhone℠ has two parts:
- A local PBX supplying sip dialtone to a number of users in the area.
A network service that links together a number of other pbx's out on the Mesh with a common dial plan amongst everyone. This allows anyone on the network to call anyone else on the network by dialing 7 digits. This 7-digit number is called a "MeshPhone Number" and is the same number anywhere on the network."
From the Meshphone Website
MeshPhone is a VOIP Telephone Network, much the same as the Hams Over IP Network, but they use the AREDN mesh network to connect their system. They have been around for a long while. There are a lot of users and PBX's on the MeshPhone Network. This network was concieved and is maintained by Mark, N2MH and other volunteers.
Hams Over IP has a trunk line connected to the MeshPhone network, which allows users from both networks to call each other.
Questions about the MeshPhone Network can be directed to Mark, N2MH on Discord or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Calling a MeshPhone Number from Hams Over IP¶
To call a MeshPhone number from the Hams Over IP network, dial
