If the wiring is what it sounds like to me, you are really

What happens if one relay sticks and does move, has an open
coil and doesn't move, or a wire breaks? What happens if you
get a short someplace? What happens if a contact welds?
Look carefully at your contact wiring. If there is ever a
possibility a relay or electrical failure can cause two
radios to connect to one antenna port, I'd strongly suggest
you buy different relays!!
If you intend to build a crossover switch, you should at the
very minimum use a DPDT relay that has a reliable armature
that is always synchronized.
