Can anyone tell me why is everyone so hyped up about 9600 baud. Just asking and not to criticize anyone. Jerry...W8RQM

I'm in the market for a new all-mode satellite transceiver and it seems the ICOM 9700 is the only game in town. Nice rig, but it doesn't have 9600 baud capabilities which is what I'm looking for.
The TS-2000 was discontinued and there's no indication that it will be replaced any time soon. If anyone knows otherwise, please let me know.
A used ICOM 910H might be the way to go, but one can get burned buying second-hand gear. I'm not familiar with the rigs reliability so maybe someone who owns one can elaborate.
It appears to be a good performer overall -- not sure about it's 9600 baud capabilities.
