I had a quick look in the source code and it appears to use 9600:
class FTx800Radio(yaesu_clone.YaesuCloneModeRadio):
     """Base class for FT-7800,7900,8800,8900 radios"""
     BAUD_RATE = 9600

What you could do is to unplug the cable from the radio and connect the 
TX and RX pins together. (I don't know what the cable is so I don't know 
which pins this or how easy it would be to do.)

Once you do that any data you manage to send to the serial port will 
come straight back again, so you can test that the link is working, and 
it works at any baud rate.
