Pin 5 is the EFC reference pin. It may (or may not) have a voltage on it. If there is a
voltage on it, it’s a voltage that the original OEM customer found useful. It may (or may not)
have a series resistor to match up with an OEM specified trim pot.

Looking at the base, the four connections in the corners are known quantities. (ground, EFC, 10 MHz out and + supply) No. 5 is midway along one side.
