Anything consumes power and emits needs extensive testing and systems integration. 

Power budgets, Weight budgets, space (as in rack space) positioning⁣ and orientation of antennas. 

I imagine the systems engineering and integration of something like that would run into the high 10's if not low 100's of thousands.

Even if it's just swapping like for like the cost would not be trivial. 

Then the time of the crew for installation, with crew time and rest being managed down to the minute. The fact that an Amateur Radio got installed in the first case is fantastic.
