Note: Former pobox addresses are not valid anymore.
From Nov 1 until Nov 30, 2014, we are allowed to use the OP-prefix in Belgium (only for call signs with two letter suffixes). So ON5NT can be QRV as OP5NT.

FAQ on the air : "No, these 2 African greys in the above picture are not mine. The picture was taken in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo in 2006 (9Q1NT). They belonged to a colleague. But yes, I have 2 the same at home in Belguim."
IMPORTANT NOTES regarding "QSL via ON5NT" (updated June 1, 2014)
Please DO NOT send QSLs via Registered Mail. Requests for multiple QSLs in the same envelope are accepted.
As per 1.1.2014 the postal mail rates in Belgium are EUR 1.17 for mail within Europe and EUR 1.39 for mail outside Europe. Please keep in mind that nowadays 1 USD only covers for EUR 0.69 (actual exchange rate). QSLs received with insufficient postage coverage will be returned via the bureau. If you use IRCs, make sure the expiry date is 31.12.2017.
Furthermore: I am not the QSL manager for A61Q, A61M, A61AV and A61AJ. I am only QSL manager for the A61Q/P IOTA DXpedition Dec 17-20, 2004 and for the A61AV/P IOTA DXpedition Dec 2-4, 2004, as I was one of the operators of both DXpeditions. There is no QSL bureau (yet) in the United Arab Emirates. A61Q is QSL via EA7FTR (EA7FTR has no logs for the above mentioned A61Q/P IOTA DXped) and A61M (formerly A61AV) is via EA5GL. A61AJ (now QRT) is via DJ2MX or K2UO.
The most recent operations I am QSL manager for, are: 5U7JB (2002-2005, but please check www.qrz.com/db/5u7jb ); A6/ON5NT (2005-2006); FG/ON5NT (2006); 9Q1NT (2006); OP5N (my 2nd call sign in Belgium since 2006); A61NT (2006-2007); SV9/ON5NT (2007); 3A/ON5NT (2008); CE3/ON5NT, VP8DLQ (2009); CX5DNT (2009, 2012 & 2014), PY3/CX5DNT (2009, 2012 & 2014); M/OP5N (2011); CW5GI, OH/ON5NT, OH0/ON5NT, CT8/ON5NT (2012); DL/ON5NT (2013); CW5F, OP5NT (2014).
Sept 29-30, 2012, I was one of the op's of CU2ARA during the "Azores Nine Islands Hunt". QSL for this operation is via CU2CE.
For following "older" operations, logs and QSL cards are still available: all ON5NT/.... and .... /ON5NT operations == OO5NT, OQ5NT, OR5NT, OS5NT, OT5NT, ON9CDX by ON5NT == N4HX/TT8, TYA11, 9U5JB by N4HX == TYA11, 9U5JB, XX9TNT by ON5NT == 4U0ITU (only Jan 31 - Feb 2, 1995), 4U1ITU (only June 7, 1994), D2TT, D3T, 7Q7XT, 9Q5TT, 4U9Q, 9Q2T (1997 only), 5X1T, FR/ON6TT, EY8/ON6TT, 4W/ON6TT, XU7ABI, A52TT by ON6TT == 4U1ITU (only May 3-4-5, 1995), 9X/ON4WW, 9X1A (1995 only), 9X4WW, 5T5WW, S07WW, EL2WW by ON4WW === FT5XM by the VK0IR team (see below).
I was also one of the operators of TO0R (Reunion Island), TO0R/MM, FT5XM and VK0IR 1997 Heard Island DXpedition. TO0R and TO0R/MM were QRV on the way to Heard Island. FT5XM was QRV on the way back. TO0R and VK0IR cards are NOT via ON5NT.
Bureau cards are accepted and replied (only via the UBA = Belgian radio society bureau). No e-QSL. I am retired now and cleaning up (slowly but surely) a huge backlog of older bureau cards. Bureau cards for my recent operations (2006 until now) are replied upon receipt. I am a great fan of QRZ.COM, but sorry I cannot reply to QRZ Logbook Confirmation Requests.
Pictures here above: 1) view on my beverage field in winter and 2) my QTH is easy to find. Just follow the sign .... "T(w)o Ghis"!
With thanks to my friendly neighbour-farmer who allows me to use his fields (located just behind my backyard) from October until March. I normally install up to maximum 4 bi-directional beverages (3 of 250m and 1 of 300m) covering 8 directions on the globe.
ON5NT Square Locator: Until April 30, 2000 = JO11RB. From May 1, 2000 until May 31, 2008 = JO10SU. From June 1, 2008 onwards = JO10TS.
