While I find myself in disagreement with Bill on many topics outside HAM 
Radio :-) in this case I am 100% with him.
Though I keep some variety of them, I personally never used foot 
switches for the last 7-8 years in the Phone Contests. Properly adjusted 
VOX in your radio would do the job just fine, including amplifier PTT
