Not for this distance and without a proper license.
Anything legal will cut before or be subject to interference.
The next best ting would be a 4 or 5W UHF transmitter - assuming free line of sight.
With a directional antenna on the ground you should be able to collect data for a while.
But keep in mind that the balloon won't stay on top of you, so you need to add distance to the height as well.
