HF transceiver for under $400: KN-920

Steve G1KQH sent me a link to one of the latest HF transceivers from Chinese origin, the KN-920. With a price tag of only $346.55 a piece (shipping not included), it is a cheap radio for sure. The radio is targeted to QRP operators, as the maximum output is 10 Watts (can be configured up to 20 Watts).
