I have just bought a KT8900 from Aliexpress https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002504842825.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27424c4dsiIlC2 and found that it was not recognised by CHIRP.
Modifying btech.py solved the issue.

after the line
KT8900_fp5 = "M2G314"
Need to add the line
KT8900_ch = "M2G424"

change the line
to read

just used my initials ch but probably should have been fp6 insted of ch

This mod made my radio able to read and write as expected.
