If my back of a fag packet maths are right. Using inverse square law and a spherical transmission path from the antenna, going from 500mW to 5W might triple range. But going to 10W might quadruple range.

But curvature of earth is an issue for VHF and UHF. So you may not get the signal there with even 100w on a low lying aerial
