Stan Howard grew up in the East Fort Worth, Handley area. He graduated from Eastern Hills High School in 1974. He enlisted in the Coast Guard in 1975 and served 20 years in Search and Rescue from Sikorsky helicopters. While not out on missions, his primary job description was Aviation Maintenance in the Electrical & Electronic Engineering fields.
He studied electronic and computer hardware engineering at Oregon Institute of Technology, graduating in 1989. After graduation, he served the Coast Guard in research and development of the Sikorsky HH60J "Jayhawk" medium range recovery helicopter, and the Aerospatiale HH-65A "Dolphin" short range recovery helicopter.
Stan's areas of interest are RF communication with a primary focus on low wattage remote HF ham, pic microcontrollers, solar and wind energy, and home and workplace automation.
His work goal is to provide the best lab experience for the undergraduate students. He is motivated by the "eureka" moments when students finally realize that their projects are working as advertised. Stan joined UTA in September 1999.
