TV Antenna Wiring

I have a TV antenna on my boat mounted on the mizzen mast. I am not sure of the brand but it looks like an older glomex. I have not found a name on (strange). Anyway, in addition to the coax cable from it I have three light gauge wires. One yellow, white and black. Any clue as to what these wires are for? Glomex manual I found online is not much help. Picure of antenna can be seen from some of pictures in my album.

Glomex antennae have an amplifier, at least, all the ones I have ever seen do. See: Glomex - The best in Marine Antennas - GAMMA PRODOTTI

I have one on my boat, and I thought it didn't work. Until one day I found the amplifier hidden behind a settee . . . and switched it on. Presto!

How is your amplifier wired up? I think if I had one it was removed by PO.
