Cheaper version of ATA RFID reader

Does anyone know of a cheaper way to read tolltag ATA rfid tags?

The TRANSCORE SMARTPASS® 4 RFID READER is over 5 grand online.

I know it can be built, but I think something already designed for outdoor use would be more durable.

Look into ThingMagic - their readers are a couple hundred, but you’ll also need a software license to decode ATA

The other question is distance. RFID reading over long distances is expensive.
