High frequency (13.56 MHz), long range readers were historically developed and designed as two-piece devices to pass the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines. These designs separated the radio frequency (RF) coupler from the antenna.

Therefore at the same time you are mitigating emissions at the reader, you compound this problem with additional emissions from the antenna.
