I would have to say besides my GPS & Blackberry...

The H4n Zoom must be one of my best purchases to date. It's cheap, I didn't have to lose any sleep and it's so damn useful!

Steve - I'm thinking of building a reception light too. What did you use for the wireless remote? Ideally I'd like to be able power on and dim remotely. I saw a Hunter fan remote at Home Depot that might fit the bill but couldn't find the wattage rating.

Art, I built lights with wireless switches which I got from a company called ClickOn (ClickOn Remote Control System for Wireless Home Automation, and Electronic Visitor and Resident Access Control for Estates). Although this engineering company is based in South Africa I'm sure if you look around your area you will find something similar, they fall under home automation.

Hey art.

I picked my remotes off if eBay from a company for 15? They are small and work great.
The problem with the hunter controllers (I could be wrong) is that they work off of ac power (the receiver). Pm mr if you have any ?s
