Ok, what is confusing you is that there are VIRTUAL channel numbers (what you SEE, such as the "25.1"), and then there's the REAL RF "channel" that they broadcast on. So, even though you "see" channel 25 for instance, WFFC is really on RF 17
. WEYI-25 is on RF 18
Also, there are different "rules" for low power stations such as WFFC versus FULL power stations such as WEYI. So, just why that allows WFFC to also use virtual channel 25, I'm not sure. But there's enough open virtual channels they certainly COULD use a different one, so as to not confuse people.
Confused yet? Here's the short version:
WFFC is displayed on 25.1 through 25.3
WEYI is ALSO displayed on 25.1 through 25.4
Depending on your tv set or device, they'll scan in as the same virtual channels. So, it'll seem like there's two sets. However that said, some devices are incapable of showing two different channels on the same virtual channel. Hopefully, yours isn't one of those. My LG tv set scans them in as duplicates, but shows the "WEYI" or "WFFC" along with the 25.x channel.
