About Big Lake ARC

Big Lake Amateur Radio Club is a public service of the amateur radio operators of Hendry County, Florida, in cooperation with Hendry County CERT.

Hendry County has nearly 40,000 people (and ten times as many cows) spread out over almost 1,200 square miles of beloved south Florida boondocks, sandwiched between considerably wealthier neighbors on both the east and west coasts of Florida, Lake Okeechobee to the northeast, and the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation to the southeast.
