 Have to agree with this.  I started with a footswitch, then went to a hand switch, then to a switch mounted on the microphone stand.  After learning how to properly use VOX, all contests are now VOX.  The only time I use a switch is for ragchews.

 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
