Seems totally possible. Directed signals (microwaves, especially) are quite sensitive to obstructions in the pathway of the signal through the
When the F-117 'stealth fighter' went into service in the 1980s, it did an exceptional job of absorbing/scattering radar signals and was virtually
impossible to track, especially at lower altitudes where it would be masked from radar detection by mixing in with ground clutter.
But during testing it was discovered the jet was completely trackable using fairly cheap *existing* systems not intended for air surveillance: cell
phone transmit/receive towers and repeaters and microwave comms links.
The doctrine for mission operations of the jet dictated it fly very low to maximize its electronic invisibility. But if the jet flew through an area
where the cell towers were in use, brief interruptions in networked signals could be quickly plotted on a map to show speed and direction of the
aircraft over the ground.
