Not a bad idea at all.

Although the tech would not be difficult to develop, deploying it and maintaining the system by the aircraft companies is unlikely in the U.S.'s system (based on today's drone "risk" statistics, at least). I also believe that a localized ground-based jamming system is better, for the simple reason that it's a lower cost for the upkeep. Long term operation of a highly-radiating aircraft antenna (with high directivity) in the temperature range of Atlanta's runway vs. Anchorage's has some engineering challenges.
