do you notice that the mast version writes about a "pole"?

> Google search of "radio mast", "radio tower", "television mast", "television tower", etc. gives each millions of results with similar images. It seems that the words "mast" and "tower" are interchangeable.

-1, there might be edge cases that can be described with both words, but many can not.

> The article in English Wikipedia is called: "Radio masts and towers": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio_masts_and_towers

and if someone writes an article about "life and death" that's both the same state? This article puts both types in one article because it doesn't care about the shape but about the function (radio transmission)
