Powering the antennae amp

Apologies for asking a question that I know has been brought up many times. I couldn't find anything that I felt confidently answered my question/car hardware.

I have a 318i touring, early 2000, m43 engine. My car does not have a BMW installed audio amplifier.

Here is what I have in terms of antennae amp in the side pod of the boot (passenger side - left side).

Looks like the pics have been rotated 90 degrees anti-clockwise.

I am wanting to use the antennae for an android tablet install. To power the antennae amp, is it just a matter of giving 12v power to the correct pin at the head unit end?

Awesome, cheers. I have a relay, switched by ignition, that feeds the 12v at the head. Guessing if I loop this back into the antennae power pin I should be good to go!
