new stereo wiring power antena on 85 300sd

I have hard wired my stereo to the constant power suply(red wire).
I am trying to get my power antena to go up, even if I have to do it manually from the dash button.
I have a black wire/yellow stripe which powers up when car is on, a purple wire/purple stipe which never has power, and a brown wire/blue stripe which used to have a clip on it and was attached to the top of the outside of the stereo( i assume some sort of ground) If anyone can shed some light on this subject, I would appreciate it.
