Unclear usage

This tag was indeed introduced with Belgian import but its real meaning remains unclear: we don't know if imported nodes represent a site/place involving among other things several antennas or actual individual antennas.
I agree with the current definition on this page: telecom=antenna should stay consistent with usual meaning of antenna and refer to antenna devices, not to radio sites (or masts/towers/whatever support).
It should not be used to describe a radio site for which tagging isn't clear currently. Fanfouer (talk) 12:04, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Hello, just for info, tag was existing prior to our import. It was chosen because it was documented here: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Telecoms and we were also aware that telecom group was suggested for telecommunication related objects. This was our discussion at the beginning of this year: https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk-be/2020-March/010949.html. For the unclear usage, we had the discussion here: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Import/Catalogue/ibpt_belgium_antennas --Vucod (talk) 10:09, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
