Technically the parabolic tinfoil thing isn't an antenna.  You use the
antenna that's already attached to the device.

And technically having a HAM license won't help you there.  That band
isn't licensed to HAMs, it's licensed to everyone (with some
restrictions).  It is true though that most devices are licensed only
for the antenna the manufacturer sold it with.
