Who is going to benefit from such information? Those with a concrete interest in such information will surely already have their accurate sources of information and disregard our fragmentary and sparse information of unknown accuracy.

My friend, there are 88 persons who have mapped 520 antennas (https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/antenna).

Compare it to the billions of antennas out there and I think we are far below the "/noise level/" and that all energy "invested" in trying to regulate this is... lost energy.

The only antennas I would personally map and tag are those who are enough conspicuous to represent landmarks.
