Try looking up the datasheets for some of those ICs, using a site like this one:

Hopefully those datasheets will give you some clues as to what pin on what IC does what.  That is to say, a typical IC has a pin for Vcc, and a pin for ground, the pins to which the DC voltage supply is connected. 

Once you have identified these pins, then you follow the circuit traces from these pins to see where they go.  Hopefully they will lead to somewhere big enough to solder a wire to.  

I don't know about the antenna.  Maybe the datasheets will tell you, or maybe you'll just have to find the thing that looks like an antenna connection.
