Typically, phones are established in ham shacks, EOCs, Clubs & club members, ARES, and other Ham related areas and functions. It is not the intention of HAMShack Hotline to replace traffic carried over radio in an emergency or other tactical operation, but rather to augment it, by offloading managerial tactical operations and providing a full duplex path for such communications when spectrum is occupied, conditions diminished, or otherwise unavailable.
HAMShack Hotline also supports FAXing of information (with appropriate equipment) which allows tactical offices to share documents & data between tactical locations. In a non-tactical use, HAMShack Hotline is an effective resource for off-air troubleshooting when you need to coordinate a troubleshoot of a radio circuit off-air and between multiple SMEs. In addition to all this, conference bridges on the HAMShack Hotline network allow large groups of Hams to coordinate & meet in real time anywhere in the world.
