    I just got shanghaied to be an executive board with members geographically dispersed
    throughout the province. Currently they are using a phone patch system but
    permission is a bit hazy and it only has 8 ports. A bit tricky with 12 members.
    Currently many of the members who are in the same city gather at someone's house and
    use a speaker phone there. But that doesn't always work. Today at least two people
    couldn't get in.

    MSN only allows four people to be in an audio conversation. Anyone know of any free
    software which allows up to 12 people or so?

    I think pretty much everyone would have high speed Internet.

  3. Asterisk would handle this, I believe. I haven't used the conferencing
    features just yet. I am sure a Google search would turn up loads of info!

    Also, you might look into Free World Dialup. It has conference
    functionality as well.

    Good luck,

    I didn't even bother to try as I'm sure there'd be so much crap showing up in any
    search it would be impossible.

    Sheesh, I'm an idiot. Search using gets me at least two free systems in the
    sponsored links on the right hand side.

    That'll teach me to make assumptions. <smile>

    The latest Skype allows for 10 participants. This is not the 12 you look
    for but a good start. And, the voice quality is excellent if you have PC
    to PC calls, SkypeOut (PC to landline) is of mixed quality
