I leave the penlight in the car now.  Too many times when something
unexpected happened I turned on the light when I should have been
turning on the recorder.  I do carry a handheld GPS that does have a
backlight display.  It is easy to get turned around in the woods at
night and that has saved me a lot of problems even though it often
has weak reception in the woods.

Easy?  I have waited days now for the chance to re-record that last
cricket at 48 degress.  Want a harder cricket, start listening to the
echos behind them and figure out how to capture the most/least/best
reverb of crickets?=20=20

Cooledit has a 40+ hour learning curve.  You will get use to it with
time. Yes you can amplify things as much as you want.

Figure out how to connect your computer to your sons stereo.
For me it is the opposite of you, my listening room is far better
than my headphones.

Getting close to peak time now for migration location calls of flocks
of birds if you want more night targets.  (those little chirps heard
at night overhead)
