Complaints about the stations have been levelled due to its expletive-riddled and copyright infringed station ID that is using an altered version of Super Radyo DZBB 594's 2017 jingle. The stations have reportedly been illegally reusing callsigns, the first being DZTT at 89.5 (pronounced D-Z-double-T, a parody of the DZBB-AM calls) and DWBU at 107.1. The latter calls, however are legally held by the Bicol University campus radio. Furthermore, the stations have earned the ire of a non-profit group composed of broadcasters and radio enthusiasts. So far, no documented actions by the National Telecommunications Commission against the stations have been released.
