# how to connect these antennas wirelesslly?

I know the qustion in little strange, but i need to connect between these three antennas by wireless channel (with distance d as a name) and (what is the possible options) also whats is the possible options for antennas or nodes (another shape in latex). so i can put it in the paper and thanks

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{circuitikz}
\usetikzlibrary{positioning}
\usetikzlibrary{shapes,arrows}
\tikzset{block/.style = {draw, fill=white, rectangle,
minimum height=3em, minimum width=2cm},
input/.style = {coordinate},
output/.style = {coordinate},
pinstyle/.style = {pin edge={to-,t,black}}

}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[auto, node distance=2cm,>=latex']
\node[block](tx){Base Station};
\node[antenna] at (tx.east) {};
\node[block,below  = 2cm of tx](ttx){GSM900 Tower};
\node[antenna] at (ttx.east) {};
\node[block,right = 5cm of tx](rx){Sensor Node};
\node[antenna,xscale=-1] at (rx.west) {};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}


Note: is saw this code in this website but i changed it

• You should provide a link to the original. If the link is wireless, surely not drawing anything at all is the most appropriate option? – cfr Aug 10 '16 at 21:40
• You can do the lines pretty easily (if you want them straight): \draw (1.5,-1.2) -- (6,2.07); \draw (1.2, 2.07) -- (6, 2.07); I think. – karatechop Aug 10 '16 at 22:04
• Instead of straight lines, if I may suggest expanding arcs, like ) ) ). – Matsmath Aug 11 '16 at 5:47
• You have a defined radiation style in your document - why not use that? – hbaderts Aug 11 '16 at 7:22

Something like this?

\documentclass[border=3mm]{standalone}
\usepackage{circuitikz}
\tikzset{%
block/.style = {draw, fill=white, rectangle, minimum height=3em, minimum width=2cm},
input/.style = {coordinate},
output/.style = {coordinate},
pinstyle/.style = {pin edge={to-,t,black}}
zigzag/.style = {% added for solution
to path={ -- ($(\tikztostart)!.55!-9:(\tikztotarget)$) --
($(\tikztostart)!.45!+9:(\tikztotarget)$) -- (\tikztotarget)
\tikztonodes},sharp corners}
}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[auto, node distance=2cm,>=latex']
\node[block](tx){Base Station};
\node[antenna] (ant1) at (tx.east) {};
\node[block,below  = 2cm of tx](ttx){GSM900 Tower};
\node[antenna] (ant2) at (ttx.east) {};
\node[block,right = 5cm of tx](rx){Sensor Node};
\node[antenna,xscale=-1] (ant3) at (rx.west) {};
\coordinate (A1) at ($(ant1)+(0.5,2)$);
\coordinate (A2) at ($(ant2)+(0.5,2)$);
\coordinate (A3) at ($(ant3)+(-0.5,2)$);
\draw[draw=red,very thick,shorten >=1mm,->] (A1) to [zigzag,"$d$"] (A3);
\draw[draw=red,very thick,shorten >=1mm,->] (A2) to [zigzag,"$d$"] (A3);
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

• urgent message to sensor .... :-) – Zarko Aug 13 '16 at 6:30

Another wireless option

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{circuitikz}
\usetikzlibrary{positioning}
\usetikzlibrary{shapes,arrows,decorations.pathreplacing}
\tikzset{block/.style = {draw, fill=white, rectangle,
minimum height=3em, minimum width=2cm},
input/.style = {coordinate},
output/.style = {coordinate},
pinstyle/.style = {pin edge={to-,t,black}},
}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[auto, node distance=2cm,>=latex']
\node[block](tx){Base Station};
\node[antenna] at (tx.east) {};
\node[block,below  = 2cm of tx](ttx){GSM900 Tower};
\node[antenna] at (ttx.east) {};
\node[block,right = 5cm of tx](rx){Sensor Node};
\node[antenna,xscale=-1] at (rx.west) {};

\draw[radiation] ([shift={(1cm,2cm)}]tx.east)-- node [above=5mm] {d} ([shift={(-1cm,2cm)}]rx.west);
