We have a recessed can light in our shower. The tag inside states that a 60 W incandescent in the max it can accomodate, but even a 60 W reflector bulb has pretty wimpy output. I'd beenusing a 150 W equivalent 42 W CFL, but they don't last long. Based on what I've seen here, I went to Home Depot and snagged a Cree 75W equivalent (18 W consumption) flood light. It is quite bright and, as far as I can tell, RF-quiet at HF. I listened on on the AM BC band and 160-10 m during the day (so 80 and 160 are quiet) and heard nothing from it it. I also hear nothing from it on 2 m or 20 cm. So far, so good!
