To be clear, the G3RUH 9600 baud modem (The protocol we use for 9600 VHF/UHF) uses 4800 Hz modulation plus 2 symbols per transition to get 9600 baud throughput, phase-shift keying.  This is the modulation that sounds like slightly-reduced white noise if you have your squelch open listening to it.  If you don't have your squelch open, it doesn't open it.
