Ligwalagwala FM would love to broadcast over the entire country, but as it stands, Ligwalagwala FM has the maximum number of transmitters legally allowed by ICASA. Ligwalagwala FM is an SABC Radio Station and thereby is allocated transmitters in certain areas only. These transmitters have a designated wattage strength which allows a specific footprint over a given area only. By law, we are not allowed to exceed this allocation. You can call ICASA explaining your needs and hopefully they can help you: 011 566 3000/3001.

  1. A NOTE ABOUT RDS (Song info displayed on your car radio)
    A number of radio stations use RDS (that's the info that comes up on your car radio that tells you what station you're on) to display the artist & track title of the song playing. TP (traffic announcements) is also being tested and should also be available as well.

    This is a test phase only. NAB decided that those stations would be the guinea pigs for this particular project. And some of these stations are experiencing problems with the link between Main Control and the transmitter which Sentec are supposed to be sorting out, but they're not rushing around to fix it anytime soon. Therefore they probably won't have the system until it is officially rolled out to all the stations, including Ligwalagwala FM.

    Once the test phase is over, NAB will send the report to ICASA and they will then decide if it's worthy or not. Ligwalagwala FM will only adopt this system once tried, tested and perfected
