[time-nuts] Z3815A Antenna Pad Query

I am new to the group.  Recently got a Z3815A (module type) and was looking
at ZL1BPU's User Guide.  Don't ask me why but before I soldered a BNC coax
to the bottom antenna pads I checked them with an ohmmeter and found 2.5K
across the signal pad and ground.  I was surprised since there will be a
5VDC across them when powered.  I don't have a schematic . is this correct?
Perhaps someone with a ZA3815A can put an ohmmeter across their antenna
connector and confirm if normal finding?  I am reluctant to power it up if a
potential problem exists that I could make worse.
Much appreciated
