Should work just fine. The only critical piece is the
electrical length of the feedlines from the "switching
network" to the antennas.  Those lines must all be the
same length - electrically.  You can use different
velocity factor lines for them to, but then you would have
to measure and cut different physical lengths to make them
each the same length electrically.
