2003 Eclipse GT 3.0 Camshaft Position Sensor Testing

I have searched here and the Intranet but cannot find a test procedure for the Cam Position Sensor.

I have found articles that explain the basics but not what the actual signal output should be.
This is the 2003 GT 3.0 so I know the Cam Sensor is in the distributor.

I also know I am dealing with pins 5,6 and 7 on the distributor plug.

5 is power, I have 12 Volts here
7 is ground, I have good ground here
6 is Signal out (they call it signal in the articles but I am measuring voltage)

When I back probe 6 with my red test lead and 7 with my black and turn the key on I get 4.88 volts
When I crank I get 2 volt's consistent.

The question is, what voltage should I see out of the signal wire?

Is the 2 volts enough or should it be 12 volts?
