I am looking at creating a "chatter box". Set up Pi Zero W in AP mode. Maybe use long range USB WiFi adapter. Set up a conference. People connect to the Pi via WiFi and dial into the conference. Radius doesn't need to be more than 100ft.

Chatter goes on. Everybody is happy (or maybe not).

@wardmundy how many simultaneous calls do you think Pi Zero W will be able to handle?

Save yourself a lot of pain and don't start with a Pi Zero W. Move up to a RasPi 3B+ and you're probably good for 10-20 with excellent WiFi and no transcoding.

I happened to have a couple of Zero W boards sitting around. MicroSD cards are arriving tomorrow. Was going to give it a shot. But if you say it's not worth it, I'll just wait until I can afford 3B+. Thanks for the heads up.
