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"
