Holiday Gift Guide: Paddle Pads and Footswitches

Still haven’t found the perfect gift for the Amateur Radio enthusiasts in your life? There’s still time to wow your Ham friends with practical and affordable gifts. Here are a couple of ideas:

DX Engineering PaddlePads are the perfect way to keep CW paddles, straight keys, and bugs from sliding in the heat of a contest. Emblazoned with the DX Engineering logo, these 1/16-inch thick pads come in small (3-3/4” W x 5-7/8” L) and large (5-3/4” W x 7-1/2” L) models to accommodate both classic and modern CW instruments of all sizes. These soft, pliable, non-slip pads are washable and built to last—QSO after QSO.

DX Engineering Footswitches are pedal-type switches used for conveniently keying transceivers, amplifiers, and other radio or electronic equipment. They come with a built-in, spring-loaded pedal, slip-proof foot pads, and rubber feet for easy operation. Choose from three varieties: the rugged, plastic economy model; the stalwart cast iron version; and a wide pedal model for enthusiastic stomps. Attached eight foot cable is included.
