At least some ATA (analog telephone adapters) will allow you to connect two of them together without a voip server in the middle. Using g.711u as a codec will get you most of the way there - a stable network connection with little/no packet loss and jitter should get you the rest of the way.

The difference between an inverter and a non inverter generator is that the non inverter models typically use an ac generator which directly produces ac power. This requires the motor to be running at the correct rpm to get the proper ac frequency. In addition, they tend to be susceptible to
