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.[2]

KAWZ began broadcasting Christian radio over satellite on April 26, 1995, from KAWZ in Twin Falls.[1] KAWZ is the uplink station, owned by The River Christian Fellowship (formerly Calvary Chapel of Twin Falls), with Pastor Mike Kestler as its founder. KAWZ feeds nearly 400 broadcast translators nationwide and 32 full power radio stations[3] across the United States, including Alaska and the Hawaiian Islands.[4] 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.[1]
