Some describe a structural system (eg. lattice, guyed lattice, tube), others a shape (e.g. dish, dome), others a structural property (freestanding), others a material (stone, steel, metal, concrete). It’s a complete mess, and concealed fits nicely by adding yet another different kind of property to it ;-)

I think dish and dome are for the antenna. A dome would be a cover to keep stuff out of the real antenna surface - usually a dish.
