Upgrading Mikrotik LTE modems

The Mikrotik LHG, SXT, LTAP and LDF use a Mini PCiE connection for the modem.
While Mikrotik offer the R11e-LTE and the LTE6 Mini PCiE modems, they have recently added support for Quectel.

Quectel modems can be found in the Chateau LTE12, LHG LTE18 and others.

To upgrade your existing Mikrotik from Mini PCiE to a newer modem, you require:
Suitable Quectel modem like the EM12G
M.2 Key B to Mini PCiE Adapter
IPX4 to IPX1 cables

RouterOS7 supports the EM12G, and as it's a CAT12 modem with 3CA support and band 32 it works well on 3 UK.

My mast has dropped the transmission power on band 3, I no longer get a good signal at 8 miles away so rely on 2CA 20+32 which gives me the same download as band 3 alone did before. For 2 weeks after the mast upgrade I got band 3 and 32 then lost band 3 when the power was dropped. So in short it would work for me.
