|Tools for this tag|
Indicates the presence of some kind of antenna. Antennas interface between radio waves in free space and electrical signals in a transmission line. Antennas come in a large variety of configurations, shapes and sizes.
Only large ones are mapped using this tag (do not use it to map a wifi antenna of a router).
The tag frequency=* can be used to specify the frequency of operation.
The tag operator=* can be used to specify the operator.
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.
tower:type=communication with man_made=tower or man_made=mast
telescope:type=radio with man_made=telescope
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.
