The LHGG-LTE18 has an m.2 slot and a R11mL-EG18-EA, this could be replaced with the R11mL-RG502Q-EA or similar

RM500U-CN looks tempting:

Yeah, that would be a nice replacement in an LHGG. Are you going to buy one and test it out for us? Smile  The EM12-G I have installed is doing quite well. I couldn't justify changing it for a while.  I am not even sure my local mast has 5G enabled on it yet.  I don't understand why Mikrotik haven't released an LHGG device with 5G yet?

I've got a LHGG and want to order an RM502Q for 229usd or the RM520N for 205usd. would have it in a few weeks and will post my results. can't decide which modem to buy, anyone got a preference?
What 4g and 5g bands are in your area?

It's been ordered but not shipped ?

Sean, out of the 3 coxial points on the EP06-E, which 2 did you use? On my EP06-E i have M1 D2/G and D1.. I've got AUX and MAIN on the R11e-LTE... Can you help with the correct setup?

btw, the lhg is on ros 7.7, and not showing automatically. did you need to run something or how did you get alien modem to show? NOTE: I had to restore to factory defaults for it to show.

Sidenote: running my EP06-e on this firmware, is this the latest? If not where would i source and what is best way to flash it?
I used the M1 and D1 coaxial connections. The D2/G appears to be for GPS only, which is not required.

With mine, the modem automatically appeared when I manually updated the MikroTik firmware. I cannot remember if I performed a factory reset, however, I never had any configuration other than the APN as I just used the LHG for testing purposes.

When I last tried with the LHG about a month ago during a test set up, I recall it saying that the Router OS firmware utility does not support this modem, so I think the firmware can only be updated a PC using a USB to M.2 adapter. I don't have one, so mine is still on the original factory firmware.
DFOTA firmware does exist for the ep06:
