What is the orange/blue hash wire on a 1985 stereo?
 
I have this from a junkyard:

What is the orange/blue-hash wire for? From what I can tell, it might be the thing that
kicks a power antenna into action?

Hold on, let me dig through the trash, i just worked on my stereo and I have a wiring diagram

Ok, so according to this one, it just said Blue. BUT for the Topaz that I had, the power antenna was blue and orange, same with my brothers Escort and Explorer.
I would say yes, power antenna

It's hooked into the power button, or on the old shaft and knob radios, the on/off switch on the volume control.
