Tag Distance Testing With NFC Cockpit and OM25180FDK

I'm looking into an RFID application, and trying to characterize tag read distance in different orientations. I can get NFC Cockpit and OM 25180FDK to read different tags (the ISO15693 "Inventory" option or Type A "REQA" depending on the tag). When I try to switch from the default antenna built on the board to the second included PCB antenna, I'm having a lot of trouble reading anything at all. I think this is because I don't understand all the settings exposed in NFC Cockpit, and haven't been able to find a video or Application note that walks me through what I'm trying to do. I am hoping someone here can help. It should be simple as I only care about how far away I can read a tag until I get firmware support from another team member.

 

Could someone help me set the board to max RF power, and I can cycle Type A REQA or 15693 Inventory? I don't need Dynamic Power at the moment, so I hope that simplifies the request.
