If installed on the roof, the dish shall not be larger than 12 feet in diameter; shall not project higher than 5 feet above the actual height of the building; and shall be set back from the sides of the building at least 15 feet. Dish antennas may be placed on a communications tower and/or water tower, subject to the regulations contained in § 156.058 above. Commercial dish antennas shall not be used for any advertising purposes.
   (F)   Other general information. The standards for this section shall apply to all dish antennas installed after November 21, 1994. All dish antennas existing prior to November 21, 1994 shall be considered pre-existing and are exempt from these regulations.
