You can pick up a cheap Chinese analog 8 port PBX on ePay for about $60. It will create dial tone, ring, etc. and allow you to call from "extension" to "extension" so you can even dial in and get a handshake tone. The only issue is that I don't believe they can be daisy chained so eight ports is your max and there is no way to connect one site to another (short of running very long wires).
