It depends on the area in which you live.|
Here it is simply the total height of the structure *excluding* antennas. They didn't even count the top mast, although I did for safety.
It may be the height of the tower plus the distance to the tip of the antenna (element) farthest from the mast, or the total height of the tower, which ever is greater.

The Building Inspector is requiring my engineering drawings to specify what he is calling the "drop zone" or "drop radius" of the tower. He wants to see what is the radius of the circle it will all land inside when it all comes crashing down. (perish the thought!)
