Heath SB-200 need a standby pot K1FQY on 17/1/23
285 hits for the search "switch potentiometer 100k" on ebay.

Ebay is a great source for finding vintage parts.
Many of these parts are sold with a "buy it now" option as opposed to an auction listing.
FCC and Pecuniary Interest K2YV on 16/1/23
Part 97.113 Prohibited Transmissions
Communications in which the station licensee or control operator has a pecuniary interest, including communications on behalf of an employer, with the following exceptions:

I believe the intent of the rule is to prohibit being paid for operating, not paying to operate.

The legality of Remote Ham Radio was addressed in a May 2013 QST Product Review. "As far as the FCC is concerned, these are simply ham stations with extremely long microphone cords, so to speak."

In January 2015 the DXCC rules were changed to explicitly recognize remote operating.
It had become a very contentious issue and members were demanding that something be done. The rules were a compromise and some hams weren't happy with the new rules.

It is my observation that that if you can operate during the week days, there is plenty of room to operate both CW and phone. Granted, there are contest weekends in which the bands fill up, but this was the case before remote stations.
