Assuming you have a peer defined in sip.conf as Iwatsu, you could try this:

exten => 1234,1,Verbose(Making outbound test call over Iwatsu trunk)
exten => 1234,n,Dial(SIP/Iwatsu/3001,D(ww${DIALNUMBER}))

where ${DIALNUMBER} is the number you'd like to dial.  For testing I would
set this to a static number (your cell phone or whatever).  Once you have
that working, you would implement it for real in a fashion similar to this:

exten => _X.,1,Verbose(Making outbound call over Iwatsu trunk)
exten => _X.,n,Dial(SIP/Iwatsu/3001,D(ww${EXTEN}))

and then make the outgoing-dial context available from whatever context your
phone defaults to.
