No, I'm sure most people in Schenectady call it "Channel 6"

It's easier to remember just the dial position or the network that is on
that particular transmitter.

Aside from Channel 4, I don't really know many of Boston's TV
transmitter's call signs.  I just call them Channel 2, 4, 5....etc.  Other
people call them CBS, NBC, Fox....

What the hell is a WBMX FM?  I'm sure most people just know it as 98-5 or
Mix 98-5 (or even Mix 98).
