Yes, it is FM and I think there are some people experimenting with sound
card decoders, but I dont recall any offhand?  In any case, you will have
to connect to the internal discriminator of the radio.  9600 baud will not
pass through audio and speaker circuits.  Easiest solution is just to find
someone with a Kenwood D7 HT or D700 Mobile rig.  THey have 9600 baud
TNC's built in...

Hope that helps
