45.45 baud is not only allowed in RTTY contesting, it is the Amateur RTTY
The weird number (more precisely 45.454545... baud) comes from the 22.0 ms bit

The risk of cranking your transmit baud rate up is that you will be asked for
more repeats when SNR is poor, thereby negating the advantage of a shorter
