Yes. The position-sense pot (within the rotor) is 500 ohms, with one end
"grounded" to pin 3, the high end of the pot is pin 5, and the tap that sense
position is pin 4.
The motor is 8.75 ohms measured at the rotor. If you're measuring at the
controller, add the wire resistance of the cable. Yaesu's wire size vs.
distance specs translate to a maximum permissible loop resistance of 2.5
ohms. (That is, if you're using a long run, wire size should be increased to
keep the wire resistance below 2.5 ohms).
