I use a couple of professional Linemaster brand foot switches. They are one of 
the major brands of such products. Solidly built, and are available at places 
like Allied or Newark. Here is a link to just one example: 


I have picked up a couple of other Linemaster examples on E-bay recently. They 
probably have about 50-60 different models. The one I like the best is the 
Deluxe model 81. I modified it to put on a RCA jack so I can quickly switch it 
out for another one. 

No, I don't work for either Linemaster or Allied, but have used them for MANY

I need to buy a foot switch. One handed logging isn't cutting it 
anymore and is cutting into my rate. 

Most ham radio stores have the choice of the Heil or the MFJ foot pedals. 

Is that really the only two choices we have? I have a heil headset 
and it has not impressed me with its build quality. Therefore I'm a 
bit reluctant to buy another Heil product. 

Anyone has any recommendations? What do you guys use?
