Looks like EP3RF is who she was trying to get. I found the call in her
Blog. Look here http://spaceblog.xprize.org/2006/09/22/the-trip-up/ and
then do a find for EP3RF or scroll down to comment #114.

I believe she was calling for EP3RF. They were planning for a contact
on September 25th with some students attending the session.
However, I have not seen any comments if this actually happened...
Instead I've got a report through her Blog, that in Iran the band is
associated to some governmental services and nobody else may listen or
read anything on it. Instead, most amateur radio operators are using the
old 27MHz (11m) band.. I don't know if this is true, but it may
explain why the contact may have failed..
