Default gain switch and auto antenna

My head unit does not have a power antenna lead, just amp turn on. SO whenever I turn on my deck the antanna goes up. Would it be possible to run a wire from the amp turn on lead through the on/off switch of the gain control so I could manually raise and lower the antenna when the deck is on? I dont want to install a seperate switch just for this, but I dont want the antenna going up everytime i turn on the stereo.

You can def run a sep switch. I think it'* the pink wire. Power is up..no power is down.

I know it can be done lol, what I want to know is if I can use the factory gain control switch instead of a seperate one.
