In 1971, the Wisconsin state legislature created the Wisconsin Educational Communications Board, activating five stations as satellites of WHA-TV during the 1970s - WPNE/Green Bay in 1972; WHWC/Menomonie and WHLA/La Crosse in 1973; WHRM/Wausau in 1975 and WLEF/Park Falls in 1977. Though united as a network, WHA-TV and the other stations would employ their respective call signs for on-air branding until the mid-1980s.
