Glomex TV Antenna Amplifier

Hi,
I recently bought a glomex omni-directional antenna off ebay, but its missing the 12v power connector.
The amplifier has 3 wires, red, black and white. I assume the red and black are the positive and negative, but have no idea what the white coloured wire is for.
If anyone has one of these amps, I would be grateful to know where this wire connects to.
Thanks in advance

Sorry to create thread drift right out of the box Nigel, but will that antenna work with digital tv? Don't you need a new type of amplifier now for the UK?

Digital changeover won't affect it - I am still using the same amp post changeover. Digital works on the same bands as analogue

According to Glomex, the antenna is suitable for digital signal.
And, I managed to find out about the connections, the white wire is used when connecting to a 24V power supply, instead of the red.
