The WHEB-AM tower was torn down in early-mid 1991 to
pave way for the construction of the current 459' FM
tower currently located at the rear of the Lafayette
Plaza. The tower was required to be dismanted as per
the City of Portsmouth. The remaining tower (the
original FM stick) was able to stay as so to allow for
STL, two-way communications. The 1987 sign-off figure
is from the best of my memory, which can be fuzzy from
time to time. I'm sure Ed Brouder is probably right as
the time frame makes sense. 

That was a station I always wished could have gotten a
night time license, moving it's TX into Maine. It had
a killer signal. The NIMBY pressure prevented that
