Well we all know Baofeng and there hand held radios and indeed many a novice license owner has started there collection with this brand of radio as it allows a quick and simple way onto the air at a great price. An email overnight from AE shows that maybe they are now stretching there arms and considering a full blown entry into the budget HF Radio Market.
And the information about the radio:
Product introduction: this section KN920 shortwave radio specifically for amateur radio development, because of advanced humanized design, cheap price, it’s easy to learn to fit at the same time, so is well received by industry the lovers. This paragraph in shortwave radio multichannel transceiver, various work modes, internal circuit and high-speed microcontroller computing storage frequency, control tuning. LCD screen visual display parameters, users can very convenient manual input, storage, frequency, switch mode, etc. The fuselage panels with handles on both sides, is very appropriate also carry radio field to communicate. At the back of the fuselage with a cooling fan, cooling operation during launch.

Note: this product is a new shortwave radio, because less inventory every time a reservation, please to shoot after communication with the seller, thank you for your cooperation.
for buyer early receive prodects i will accord diff country use diff shipping way for buyer early receive it ,as usual EMS
All above information came to me via Aliexpress.
Click on a photo and it shows KN-920 so is it re-badged or re photo shopped?

“clonezone” Link? I call fake all the way.
Bastards! Its a tease!
The one they used as a prop, the KN-920?
No thanks, too close to the price of an ICOM IC-718
Yes it seems but as I’ve told on Facebook a dealer in Italy told me it’ll come as the KN-920 had poor quality and so another company took it on? This I don’t know but same guy has told many the same story I’ve read.
yes I agree I very nice radio for some free band and 10w more then enough to get some great contacts and I would think it could be made to cover more freqs a very good looking radio Simon
That would be a great free band rig even at 10 watts out, it is plenty to drive an amp. Any idea on the street price?
From China $215 – $260 plus shipping I was told plus duty and taxes
Oh hell, that is pretty affordable…. Any ideas on the MARS/CAP mods?
Absolutely none at all. Some others not Baofeng transmitted all the places they received so maybe the case with this? Don’t think it’ll be too difficult. I’ve asked already at the factory but Sunday so not anybody there today.
I’ll keep an eye on your blog to see if you find out anything.
I also wish one of these would come out with wider TX audio bandwidth, at least 40-4 kHz audio sound great on air and the HIFI SSB guy would probably get some to play with…
I agree 100% on HiFi and mod. If it exists I’ll add it on mods page
