I thought I would let all of you know I actually wore a suit & tie today to the FCC Katrina review panel today. It seems that 10 minutes is not very long to get your point across once you get started talking. I do think that we faired really well and I caught some slack with my Southern born/bred slang and accent as there were people on the panel who said that they could understand everything I said :-)

It was really amazing to me as most of the speakers there were trying to sell their individual wares to the Gov't like ballons that float in "near" space at 66,000 feet and stay aloft for ......<drum roll> ........ 20 hours!!! I will confess that I was trying to sell them on the right spectrum/frequency for the right job. Did I say TV white space and or sub 700MHz spectrum? - - - - - - I did!!

Bill,

Not sure if you got my offlist email, but you can go to www.tavoca.com and look at their GroupCall product. Does exactly what you need it to do.

Friend of mine runs this company and will do great for what you want.

Hi Brian,

I'm actually looking for something not quite as complex. I need a system that I can enter a list of numbers (won't change often-mostly cell phones), and once a night have it call the list of numbers and play a message.

I can work with a pre-recorded message where I just call in and activate the sequence. I would prefer to be able to call in each night and leave a new message, and then have it call each number and replay the message.

I'm sure asterisk would do this, but is probably overkill for my needs. I'm looking for something simple to setup and administer, so that down the road I can turn it over to someone else to maintain the list.

I have an older PC and a voice-capable modem that I can use for this. I can also give it a public IP so it can be administered from anywhere.

Thanks,
Bill

Bill,
Are you talking about an Auto Attendant that can provide precanned
messages for callers like a call center does?  For example, your
cellular providers's support center will make you key in various option
codes to talk to the correct department.  If that's what you're looking
for, use Asterisk PBX.  It's  an open-source PBX server.

see http://voip-info.org/wiki/index.php?page=Asterisk

I can help you set up a server, if needed.

I need to setup an automated call system. One where someone dials in and activates it (by entering a touch-tone code) and then it goes through a list of numbers it dials and plays a pre-recorded message.

Any hints, tips, suggestions, software recommendations, or other advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Bill
