Just place a few hundred .call files (have a look at the "sample.call"
that comes with asterisk) in *'s outgoing spool directory.
You'd ideally connect the calls to those applications that you want to

As Channel, use any VoIP address that your server will handle, eg.
IAX2/guest at localhost/s
(ideally, this would be something that doesn't hang up immediately, but
after some time.)
