So do even cheap yagi's like these.

Add this.

Then some proper wires minding line loss and make it line of sight via antenna mast or roof. 1-2 miles is dependable and even more if both sides are playing together. You could recycled a dish and play cheaper making a bi quad feed and a alfa or even a yagi but a little more restricted on placement.

Retiredcaps has a point but I'll add everything can be hacked.
