OR Prefix Celebrates Belgium Princess Birthday

To celebrate the birthday of Her Royal Highness Princess Elisabeth of Belgium radio amateurs may use the prefix OR instead of ON from 25th October 2019 to 25th December 2019.

The 25th October 2019 is the birthday of Her Royal Highness Princess Elisabeth of Belgium. The Belgians then celebrate the 18th birthday of the future First Queen, Queen of the Belgians.

In that context, the Union Royale Belge des Amateurs-émetteurs, furthermore the "UBA", contacted BIPT to allow radio amateurs to use a special prefix for that occasion.

The BIPT Council allows every holder of a Belgian call sign, radio amateurs and radio clubs, to use the prefix “OR” instead of the standard prefix “ON”, and that during the period from 25 October 2019 to 25 December 2019.

This decision does not apply to the use of a short call sign or an uncrewed station [repeater/beacon].
