October 25, 2019 will mark the birtday of Her Royal Highness Princess Elisabeth of Belgium.

The Belgians will celebrate the 18th anniversary of the future first Sovereign Queen of the Belgians.

In this context, BIPT has been contacted by the Royal Belgian Union of Amateur-emitters, hereinafter "UBA", in order to authorise the use of a special prefix by radio amateurs for this occasion.

The BIPT Council authorises each holder of a Belgian amateur radio and radioclub callsign to use the prefix "OR" instead of the standard prefix "ON" during the period from 25 October 2019 to 25 December 2019 inclusive.

This decision is not applicable when using a short code or a station without an operator.
