The tag communication:mobile_phone=yes is added to a feature (e.g. man_made=mast) to specify that it is used for carrying antennas and equipment for mobile phone communication (mobile mast/tower).


Dedicated communication mast:

Antennas on a supporting structure mapped as a node, such as a power pylon: add tags to that structure.

Other antennas, such as on a pole atop a roof: create a new node. (If there's a significant mast on the roof, use man_made=mast with location=roof instead.)
