Where We Are
ABOUT HENDERSON COUNTY AND NORTH CAROLINA ARES
Henderson County is located in Western North Carolina, It’s a typical mountain county, consisting of mountain ranges, isolated peaks, a rolling plateau and level valley areas. The County is an intermountain plateau almost circled by mountains.
Our mountainous terrain presents us with situations and conditions which might not be experienced by “flatland” amateur radio operators.
The Amateur Radio Emergency Service in North Carolina is organized into areas which conform to the organization of North Carolina Emergency Management. (Click on the image to see a larger version.)
Henderson County is located in Area 15. For more information about the various areas, branches, etc., see NC ARES information page.
