It is not.  The netmask on those interfaces is 255.255.255.0.

I am experimenting to see if this arrangement is workable.  I want to
know if it is possible to have two separate 192.168.x subnets on the
same network.  Why?  I do not have a purpose in mind.  I am just
checking out whether it can work or not.

If it is impossible then then I will discover why that is so, which I
think will be useful in itself.
