Have you tried to decimate by 693=7*9*11 to get 96.199 kHz ?
It will be a 0.2% error in sampling rate "only".

errors as large as 0.6% in their sampling rates. The JT65 
decoders presently in WSJT do not attempt to correct for 
such errors, and sensitivity suffers unnecessarily."

So at 0.6% there might be some detection and I would guess
sensitivity loss is quadratic in nature for this kind
of error. Could be worth trying:-)

Another possibillity would be to set the Linrad output 
to 96 kHz. I guess MAP65 does not accept soundcard input
so you would have to run a second issue of linrad to
sample the 96 kHz signal and send it to the network.
(Ridiculously inefficient, but it could work. On my
laptop cpu load is 40%, but it is a Centrino duo)
