"BTS" is another object and differ from antennas since the antennas are
connected to BTS/nodeB/eNodeB.

Both can be mapped with telecom=* and BTS will often get
man_made=street_cabinet

Recently reviewed Telecom=service_device is suitable for "BTS" cabinets
with telecom:medium=radio and aditional tags for 3GPP technology 2G/3G or
LTE.

Several antennas can be fed by a single radio cabinet
