CB indicator

So I have my CB radio wired to the aux fuse box which always has power. I am wondering if any of you electrical folk would have an idea of how I could easily wire up a little LED indicator that I can put on my switch panel that'll turn on when I turn the CB on. The CB is mounted inside my center console and I have left it on a few times since I forget about it in there, and would like an indicator to remind me. And I dont really want to waste a $20 switch in my panel for power for it.

I have the Uniden Pro520XL CB.

I'm not sure where the power flows through... Im guessing through the wires. :) I'm not much of a fan of the electrical stuff.

LOL!

Where do you keep your mic when using the CB vs not using the CB? I also have my CB wired to constant power and my CB is inside my center console. When I'm using the CB, the mic is obviously coming out of the console. When I'm not using it, I tuck it inside. That's my queue: if the mic is out, the CB is on.

What if you did something similar? Maybe easier than wiring up an LED.
