I started looking into this subject after reading about fire hazards
from LED bulbs in fully-enclosed ceiling lights. Now I see that Home
Depot has units that are specifically designed to go in a 5 or 6 inch
pot light can. I haven't noticed the color temperature, but the price
($28 each) was enough to put me off.

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!
