The FCC does.

>> Good question.  According to CDBS, the tallest AM tower(s) by physical

The "electrical height" in CDBS counts only the radiating element.
(Top-loaded and sectionalized setups use a different database field,
which is why KFBK doesn't show up with its full-wave towers.  The way
CDBS stores these makes it hard to do a search that correctly handles
all the special cases.)
