Default Antenna switch question for gmrs

So an antenna switch is supposed to work/would be ideal for a multi band radio so that you could hook up multiple antennas to one transceiver.

I'm curious, would an antenna switch work if it were deployed in reverse? In other words, could I, say, hook up two UHF radios to switch between radios to the one antenna, without causing damage to the receiver of the second radio?

I would not try it not sure if it has enough isolation between ports.

I do it, but with 11 meter CB radios only, so far.
I have several radios, but only 1 antenna.
I'm told as long as the other radios are turned off
then I should be OK. So far, I've had ZERO issues.
