Hi nebulon42,

Thanks for this link. The problem is solved completely. Now the Odessa 
TV tower is rendered with the icon and the height in meters: 

Actually, it was not an issue of the openstreetmap-carto, but rather of 
the JOSM, as (man_made=mast; tower:type=communication) is rendered with 
the icon on the OSM map all right. But there is no "mast" in the JOSM 
"man_made" pre-sets.

I just re-tag (man_made=tower; tower:type=communication) into 
(man_made=mast; tower:type=communication), and it renders perfectly. 
However, I still feel a bit uncomfortable, since there is no 
"man_made=mast" in the JOSM pre-sets for some reason.

I mapped already with the icon another communication mast 
http://osm.org/go/0iapFXlv1--?m= , which is situated on the beach where 
there are a lot of the manned para-plane advertising flights during 
summer (for instance: 
https://www.facebook.com/tavriav/videos/1169624396384651/ ). You can see 
this mast clearly on this aerial photo: 
and how useful this information for safety. Now I have to figure out how 
to inform the JOSM people about this problematic.

Thank you again for pointing me in the right direction.

Best regards,
