Judging by the photo, are they wireless?  That could be a plus :-)

Seriously, I did not know there was a footswitch actually designed and 
manufactured for radio operators.  I'm inclined to think this is probably a 
really good choice, although I never have used one to my knowledge.

Recently, as my footswitches have all broken after 40+ years of service (I 
bought three from C&H Surplus in Pasadena when I was, like, 14 years old and 
have pounded the tar out of them ever since), I have been replacing them 
with Yamaha FC-5 "sustain pedals" which are really footswitches in disguise. 
You can find them on eBay for $5-$15 all the time.

Enter this string: "yamaha fc-5 sustain pedal"
