A radio telescope is a specialized antenna and radio receiver used to receive radio waves from astronomical radio sources in the sky in radio astronomy.

Mostly it is an antenna dish, rotatable or fixed. But there may be other forms.

In addition, radar astronomy can be mapped with this tag.

How to map?

Add a node node or draw an area area of the structure.

Add the tag man_made=telescope and telescope:type=radio.

If there are multiple antennas for a system, each antenna is drawn individually.
