All the examples show radio telecommunication antennas. However, would not a PA (public address) speaker mounted on a pole count, as it is used to communicate to those in the area in an emergency? See also: emergency=siren. Arlo James Barnes (talk) 22:12, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Building next to it

There is always a building next to the tower, housing related equipment.

Currently there is no advice on making a separate tag for the

  • building
  • area within fences containing the building and the tower

Indeed, the tower might be on top of the building, or nearby.

Should the user just use one tag for the whole mess? Mention on the page please. Jidanni (talk) 01:58, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
