The key power=* is for electrical power distribution, not mapping of large antennas. Use man_made=antenna.
An antenna wire is a wire of an antenna spun between at least two support structures. Such wires can be found at some transmitters working on frequencies below 30 MHz.
How to Map
Draw a way and add the power=antenna_line to it. The towers that support the power line can be mapped using man_made=tower or man_made=mast. It is not necessary to tag antenna lines with a layer=* unless two antenna wires cross over each other.
It is also possible to give some additional and advanced information about antenna lines :
- The number of wires=* per conductor.
- You may look at cables=* for the number of wires the antenna line is composed of.
|power||antenna_line||It's an antenna line, normally mapped as a .||mandatory|
|voltage||<operating voltage>||The voltage on the antenna line||recommended|
|operator||<cable operator>||The name of the company which operates the transmitter to which the antenna line belongs||recommended|
|cables||<number of cables>||The number of cables for this section of antenna line||recommended|
|type||<type>||Type of wire antenna. Typical are "Collinear antenna array" and "Curtain array" for shortwave antennas, while wire antennas for VLF/LF/MF are just wires||recommended|
|wires||<wire bundle per conductor>||The bundle form factor for each conductor of the antenna line||optional|
|frequency||<operating frequency>||The frequency given in Hertz at which the transmitter using the antenna line is operating||optional|
|name||<name>||The name of the transmitter using this antenna line||optional|
|ref||<reference>||The reference of this antenna line section||optional|
Since antenna lines aren't insulated, they can only be located overhead to protect them from grounding with external elements.
