Jim I was thankful when someone brought it to my attention on the air with one off the digital modes that I was over modulating.

I was able to reduce the audio game and correct the problem easily.

I sure wish I understood how to connect my oscilloscope to look at the waveforms. I guess it's the horizontal sweep input that confuses me.

He ignored what I had to say and weeks later will tell you that I intentionally accused him needlessly.  The man holds an Extra Class License and, the puzzling part, is that he would not acknowledge others telling him that he had a problem.
