Don't do Bluetooth research myself, I'm afraid.

Well, once you do more research, you will find out about Bluetooth "class" of
device which denotes the, ah, output power. Class 2 and 3 are short range, class
1 is higher power, longer range.
So, we have class 1 modules which will do more than 300m in line-of-sight (we
ran out of straight road ;-) ).
What I'm trying to say is that you'll probably find something more interesting
than increasing output power (the power is limited by law, anyway).
