Best Answer

A spire is an architectural feature on a building.

It is a tall, tapering peak on a roof.

An antenna is a functional piece of equipment for receiving or transmitting electromagnetic signals (e.g. radio, TV, cellular telephone).

Some types are tall but the shape depends almost entirely on the signal to be sent or received.
