Tahks for a hint, netkit is cool indeed.
But... It connects VMs with vortual hubs only. What we need is to control all individual links between nodes. uml_switch lacks this feature, so a message sent from any node via radio interface will reach ALL other nodes. 

There is also http://clownix.net/ project, which apparently supports link delay and loss control, but I couldn't make it work.

Any kind of virtual machine needs a kind of "switch" or "packet exchange" which allows to controll connection between any pair of nodes. You cannot use tun/tap interfaces directly, because a node uses one interface only, not individual interfaces for each neighbour.
