The problem we have is you are asking us to debug a description. That's
usually almost impossible. Much easier to debug code, as it may or may not
match your description! So we can offer more insight if you include
information such as:

1. Relevant section of your dialplan.
2. The AGI code that does the origination. Presumably it is calling the AMI?
   In your example above, the Originate AMI has a Channel, but doesn't show
   any Context, Extension and Priority. Where is the channel supposed to go
   once the call to SIP/430 is answered?
3. The Asterisk "full" log, with at least verbose level 3, encompassing
   your attempt.
4. Anything else that you yourself would need to look at to debug the issue.
