Welcome.

ModeS signals are line of sight.  So, if you can get line of sight view (or nearly) of where the aircraft are landing, then you will see it land.  So, all depends on your location.  But generally the higher the antenna the better.  The standard antenna is good enough.

What's your location?  You can get a general idea of line-of-sights using http://www.heywhatsthat.com/main-0904.html

Sorry, no.
