    Welcome to my homepage, My name is Hector Cintron. Here you'll find some information about myself and hobbies that I enjoy.

I was born on the beautiful Island of Puerto Rico (P.R.), the smallest island of the big Antilles. The Island is around 100 miles long by 33 miles wide, to the south is surrounded by the Caribbean Ocean to the north is the Atlantic Ocean. Originally named "Boriken" which means in arawak (Indian) "The land of the Proud Lord". At present Puerto Rico is known as the Enchanted Island and it has a lot to offer in term of natural resource as a rain forest to the east (El Yunque), a desert to the south, a Florescent Bay (La Palgera), lots of beautiful beaches, friendly people and nice places to stay.

My first exposure to weather was at the age of 8 (that I could remember). Growing up in Hurricane Alley my grandfather always prepared and plot Hurricanes tracks on a paper maps (yeap days before computers). He had a mentality of hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

I moved to Connecticut at the age of 11 and there I spend my next 15 years. Around 1994 I became an Amateur Radio Operator and my weather interest resurfaced. You would find me on the Soapstone mountain repeater 147.000 (triple 0). There I learned about SKYWARN, HF Fax, Astronomy and many more. Got SKYWARN certified both basic and advanced and created the webpage for Connecticut Skywarn been one of around 5-10 nationwide.

In 1996 I moved back to Puerto Rico where I was able to expand and experiment with other aspects of the hobbies I love most (Astronomy, Weather, Amateur Radio and Photography)

Currently I live on the island of St Thomas US Virgin Island. Thanks to technology I can keep in touch with some of my friends, schoolmates and fellow SKYWARN spotters that got me started.

I currently have an Amateur Radio (Ham Radio) License with the call letters of N1TKK.
