Hey gsholz,

Thanks so much!

That was it, exactly.

I didn't think my meter was high enough impedance for me to see ghost voltages in the teens. I would have believed on or two or a small few volts.

But, I was wrong. When I finally chased it down, the other ends dead ended in an area that long, long ago had an electrical panel.

I suspect Ken got it right in suggesting that the root cause was induction from parallel AC wiring. There was a good bundle along with it for much of the ride.
