How do I move Rokus back and forth while being able to see the proper local channels?

We are snowbirds who recently moved to Florida, bought Rokus for our TVs there and subscribed to YouTubeTV.  In doing so, our Roku gave us coverage of the Florida local channels.  Now we are back up north (Illinois) for the winter and took 2 Rokus with us.  We connected them to our home network just fine and it all works, but it still pulls in the Florida channels from YouTubeTV.  How do I get to either switch or add our local Illinois channels?  Is there a way it will automatically "know" the local channels, or do I have to do something manually every time I go back and forth between the two locations?  Thank you.

You are getting your locals through YouTubeTV.  Roku for this is just a conduit, same as your tv.
