Ok. I have VAXStation/MicroVAX and Alpha systems but no DECStations so that
explains why I haven't seen them.

Aha - that explains the odd and slowly varying different voltages I've
found on these leads in different machines. It didn't dawn on me that
they could be isolated from ground. I should have noticed that there
were two adjacent leads which behaved like this.
This should help clarify some of the puzzles I came across when I was
trying to trace the circuit of the H7821 and H7822.
