dbo:abstract
  • Christian Satellite Network (CSN) International, broadcasting under the callsign KAWZ, is an FM radio station in Twin Falls, Idaho, operating on a frequency of 89.9 MHz with an effective radiated power of 100 kW at 302 meters above average terrain. KAWZ began broadcasting Christian radio over satellite on April 26, 1995, from KAWZ in Twin Falls. KAWZ is the uplink station, owned by Christian Broadcasting of Idaho, with Pastor Mike Kestler as its founder. KAWZ feeds nearly 341 broadcast translators nationwide and 40 full-power radio stations across the United States, including Alaska and the Hawaiian Islands. CSN is a non-profit organization and operates non-profit stations, and is not required by the FCC to have its translators and stations receive KAWZ's signal over the air, as would be required for a commercial station. The first satellite-fed translator to begin receiving the network from KAWZ was in Yucca Valley, California. CSN International was formerly the Calvary Satellite Network, started in partnership with Chuck Smith and Jeff Smith of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. The Smith family and Kestler sued each other in 2005 over control of the network. The two parties reached a settlement in 2007, where CSN kept part of the full-power stations and almost all of the translators. Kestler and CSN could no longer use Calvary Chapel branding. (en)
