Lee, way back in my college days, I worked for a dictating machine
company doing repairs. Some dictating machines use dual foot switches,
others, a single foot switch with two positions. First position is to
play, pushing further is the second position for rewind.
Anyway, I use a dual foot switch at my station, left side keys the
radio, right opens the key line for the amp so that I don't have to
either turn it off, or put it in stby mode while tuning the exciter when
Look in the yellow pages under dictating machines. Some company probably
has a dual foot switch laying around excess. Don't ask for a new one,
they'd probably soak you for $50 or more.
