Ah, there was something wrong between the scope and DUT..
Me! I had the scope set to using x10 probe when I was using x1 probe..
So that is 3.3 peak to peak AM and carrier is 2v peak to peak..
I think it's something to do with the ALSA emulating OSS (/dev/audio and /dev/mixer)

There is a wide amplitude range, to account for attenuation and loading from multiple receivers.
