Most of the “Pistol Grip” or push-button PTT switches I’ve seen lie on your desktop and get covered up by other clutter on your Ham-Shack desktop.
Recently I saw this PC joystick game controller lying in the basement and thought it would make a very useable PTT switch for my headset/boom mic. Few things can take more abuse than these PC game controllers.
I took the joystick apart, found the wires going to each switch, and wired them in parallel to a 6-foot wire with a 1/4-inch mono plug on the end.
I can wrap my hand around the joy-stick and “pull the trigger” or push the button to activate the boom mic. The 4 suction cups keep the controller in place on the desktop but still allow it to slide to a convenient position.
Pretty sure I bought this device at a garage sale for a dollar.
