Easy: Use a dish antenna on the transmitter.
Very directional with large ampification.
If using a 'moderate' opening angle, just pointing the dish at the drone
by hand will work.
After starting the system locked to the gps time, once the signal is on
the drone,
I don't think it matters anymore. (It might not even matter at the start?)
The drone will follow the timing of the jammer.
As the drone will receive all signals from the single transmitter, the
relative timing will be fixed.
Just using a OCXO will have a good enough short time stability to allow
the system to work, I would think.
As the plan is to land or jam the drone within say 10 minutes, long term
stability is not that important...

Greetings,
Pieter.
