At thr risk of repeating myself, these units will have very little reliable range, perhaps 20 or 30 metres at best and then on a good day.I tried several transistors but the problem persisted, maybe the only problem was that I didn't connect the antenna correctly.
If you want range of 100 metres or so use LoRa modules.
You will get no better range with the nrf24L01 mentioned above.
They do have a higher(amplified) output BUT you must buy the originals.
Clones are mostly useless.
