The range of reliable transmission with a telemetry system depends on the antenna position and environment:

Environment Range
Difficult environment (blocked by buildings or trees) 300 m (1000 ft)
Open environment with antennas at low level (clear view with antennas on car roofs) 700 m (2300 ft)
Open environment with antennas at height (clear view with antennas mounted on masts of building rooftops) up to 3500 m (11000 ft)

As an example of performance, Base Station telemetry communication range has been measured at distances of around 10000 m when the antennas were on hilltops with line of sight.
