If so, what actions would I need, and would I need more than one antenna?

Robert,

Passive UHF and passive HF RFID readers typically use the same antenna for the send and receive functions, so you would not need a separate antenna. However, for a passive UHF reader, you would need a near-field reader antenna. (Most come with far-field reader antennas.) To create a read zone at a certain distance, you may need to attenuate the antenna. That is, you might need to reduce the energy output of the reader antenna to reduce the read distance.
