I was trying to get a common tower preset working for JOSM [1], when I started
reading about the terms on wikipedia (english).

As I am not a native speaker, I  like to ask natives about there thoughts but as
far as I understood it.

What we call man_made=mast is still a tower and man_made=antenna should be mast,
where as antennas are only the transmitter/receiver.

Any Hints ?
