They differeniate antennas? That's a new one on me.
Generally wind damage to towers and antennas is covered by your
homeowners insurance. It depends on the carrier/claims adjuster whether they
consider it a structure (which is covered) or personal property (which is also
covered). I've never seen a tower/antenna claim refused and I've been involved
in a couple of dozen of them.
In any case if you want to get an additional rider, it may not be a bad
