The tag frequency=* can be used to specify the frequency of operation.
The tag operator=* can be used to specify the operator.
For tagging of what is transmitted, you could have a look at the tags described in this proposal: Proposed_features/Telecommunications_tower.
There are some tags that incorporate an antenna, these may be used in preference. You are invited to check the other keys, and compare actual usage numbers with Taginfo.

Some associate these with antennas, yet they can be used for other things too. If an antenna is present it is best to tag the antenna as well.
