The following line brought my attention:

[Aug 20 16:50:04] DEBUG[5319]: channel.c:1882 __ast_answer: Didn't receive a media frame from SIP/xx.xx.xxx.xx-00000026 within 500 ms of answering. Continuing anyway

Are your sure that RTP audio (media) is correctly received in asterisk? 
I suspect network or firewall problems. Also, you said that you were 
going to receive calls from the PSTN, but are you testing from a SIP
