Can't help off the top of my head, but ig you google for D-STAR on
FT-736R, you will find mods that will allow true 9600 operation (D-STAR
has similar requirements).

You'll just need to do the Rx side of the mods for telemetry decoding,
but doing Tx as well will give you more options in the future.
