I have never seen an instance where the major channel number differs
between subchannels coming from the same transmitter. Also, the FCC has
the major channel number - it is usually required that the channel number
to either match the RF channel number, or match the "old" channel number
the analog days.
There have been a few exceptions - such as this channel 8 thing on the
transmitter or KAXT-CD ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KAXT-CD ).
However, if they really are doing this, then people who can't receive WNEU
see 62.5, even if they are able to receive WMFP.
What a mess.
