Wiring a relay for a CB to come on with ignition

Is this diagram correct for wiring my CB up to come on with the truck? Also what size fuse should I run from the power distro box to the relay on the power wire? Does anyone know what wire on a 04 is on with ignition, I think its the black/pink behind the radio.

whats the reasoning... i have mine hooked up always hot unless i turn off the radio.. used it before with out having the truck running that would be the point.. also i have left it on for days and hasnt drained the battery...

Well sometimes my truck sits for a week at a time up at school and I don't want to risk the battery running out of juice.

I have no idea what fuse to run, the fuse it can with is a 30 amp I think so do I need to use that same fuse just for the power wire to the relay?

5 amp fuse should be more than enough for a CB radio
