Hi Andrew,

At present, RDAP doesn't support net handles as a search token. You can still use traditional Whois:


... should work for you. I think it would fall into the category of "feature request", but either way, a suggestion is probably the way to go (you probably know where to go but for posterity):

    This morning I tried to do a net handle lookup NET-198-0-0-0-0 on the 
    web interface.


    That produced an empty result, forcing to search "handle" also produced 
    an empty result.


    Searching via traditional whois on port 53 did produce a result.

    whois -h whois.arin.net NET-198-0-0-0-0

    If there are other ways to submit bug reports like this let me know, but 
    this seemed like the best way to start?
