  Radio masts and towers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Radio masts and towers are, typically, tall structures designed to support antennas (also known as aerials in the UK) for telecommunications and broadcasting, including television.
In the case of a mast radiator or radiating tower, the whole mast or tower is itself the transmitting antenna.
Two shorter towers may be a better option the one taller one, for example, or a higher tower might not be useful if the signal is blocked by terrain nor if all the listeners are in a concentrated area and a higher tower cannot pay for itself.

A mast is generally a single piece of pipe, while a tower is a set of interlocking pipes (typically in a triangular configuration) which can be much taller.
So unless you plan to rent the tower space to others (which can be quite lucrative, but nay not be the business you thought you would find yourself in), you can use a fairly light duty ham radio tower.
Towers that can support human weight up at the top are definitely a bit more complicated than your basic antenna pole.
