Can anybody please point me in the direction of information on this subject.

I am particularly interested in the minimum distance from an active runway that a glideslope aerial can be erected.

Thanks in advance.

I think it's normally positioned so that the top of the aerial does not infringe a 1:10 slope from the runway centreline. The UK CAA Licensing of Aerodromes CAP168 document contains the details on distances of obstructions from runways/taxiways etc.

ICAO Annex 14 Vol 1 (Aerodromes) is also relevant. Transitional and inner transitional surfaces are affected...
