Well this is a bit late but here goes:


There are a lot of solutions to your problem, here are two that can work.


If you can dedicate a computer to receiving phone calls, you can use Skype instead of contracting with a phone company for your phone line. Just patch the computer in to your mixer and use mix minus to eliminate caller echo. Here's a guide for this I found helpful. Skype is great for this because it also allows call transfers which mean you can set up a sort of call screening arrangement. There's also software for Skype (http://www.prettymay.net/callcenter/) which lets you handle high-volume calling. Skype however does not issue SkypeIn numbers in Norway, but a third party company will get you a Norway phone number that can ring to your Skype.

If you want to do it the old fashioned way and have a real phone line, with that budget you're in luck. For a single line, buy a JK Audio Broadcast Host: it's the best of its kind in my opinion. This method is impractical with a high volume of calls. Also keep in mind that performing call screening with a Broadcast Host, while possible, will require some complicated mixing.


All of this is a bit complex: I hope you have a good board-operator, if not, try to find one!
