Welcome to Librivox, Eusebio!

You got a nice recording setup there! Tech specs correct, clear sound, and volume just a bit softer than desired.
Do you do any post-editing on your recording that affects the volume? For this recording, it would need to be about 3 dB louder to reach target volume, but that might be different in other recordings.
There's a small program the spouse of a LibriVoxer developed to check the tech settings. If you're game, you can download it and use it to check the volume and other settings. It's here: https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/
The volume information is in the Information tab. We aim for 89 dB, but anything between about 86 and 92 is good. (your current test was about 85)

Just to make sure you have mastered the volume, could you upload another file to check again? Thank you!

Thanks for the kind welcome!

I actually had just finished reading through the replaygain and checker suggestions on a previous thread and got those downloaded to correct the issue. I do use the digital fish phones "fish fillets" and hadn't dialed the gain back up after all the compression and de-essing. I've attached the edited audio here for further review.
