What I need ?
The right XBee, with the right power, range, and antenna style.

I don't think you're gonna find XBees - at least 2.4 Ghz transceivers - with 1 Km
range, even if some websites claim to get it. Usually, those claims are off by about
10X in practical use, from my experience. You might look for something with lower
frequency, maybe 433 Mhz, and a lot of transmit power, maybe 1 watt, and some
nice highly-directional antennas.
