While Limpopo citizens are still celebrating the establishment of Capricorn FM, a community radio station is raving mad.

This follows claims that the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) had allocated the same frequency to two different stations.

The Greater Lebowakgomo Community Radio Station (GLFM) has accused Icasa of undermining them. They argue that after the establishment of Capricorn FM in November, the GLFM has been struggling to reach its listeners because of the clash in frequencies.

Icasa did not respond to Sowetan's inquiries.
