Yup, mid-call.  I've roamed around the marina you visited with me for
example, without ever dropping the call and with nearly no perceptible
hand-off noise.  There is no DHCP exchange when roaming between APs on the
same network with the same SSID.  You would drop the call if you roamed
between networks, and I'm pretty sure you would also if you changed SSID.

You can put any number of APs on the same LAN without DHCP being involved
in hand-offs, ever.  DHCP is only requested when the client associates with
a new SSID, not when it moves between APs.

 Static is not needed.
