How to set WiFi channel of hotspot

I recently purchased a Moto e6 and use it as a hotspot to share the cellular internet connection with a desktop computer. It is transmiting on WiFi channel 1 in the 2.4 GHz band. However, channels 1 and 11 are in use throughout the neighborhood. I would like to make the hotspot transmit on channel 6. I could not find a way to do that in the Settings. Why not? There has to be a way.

Re: How to set WiFi channel of hotspot

Good morning.  I have never seen any way to change the specific channel in Android's Hotpsot Settings.  There is an option to change the band to either 2.4 or 5 GHz.
