[CQ-Contest] Sliding Footswitches

I've been using several of those old $5 Radio Shack footswitches for 30-40
years now .... I suspect that they are no longer available but all of mine
(about a half dozen of them) still work just fine .... I simply use adhesive
backed Velcro to keep them where I want them .... and that has worked very
well .... on the floor ....  on vinyl carpet protectors .... inside desks
for use as a "knee switch", etc...

I operated CQWW SSB at a QTH with tile floors in the operating room. As 
a result, the footswitch kept sliding around and frequently required a 
pause in my run to reposition it. I am sure others out there have faced 
this problem. What solutions have you come up with?

Thanks. Scott/K7ZO
