He discovered CW nets after being away from amateur radio for awhile as an effective way to dust off his CW skills and redevelop speed and technique. Henry went on to graduate from the Maryland Slow Speed Net Training Class where he learned how to handle and manage NTS traffic. He eventually became net manager of the Ohio Slow Speed Net for several years. after which he still remains very active participating in several nets.
