Nice work!!! thanks for sharing!!

i have a question: 15dbm signal improvement was on 2ghz or 5ghz or both?

imagine the results of this mod on a wAP AC...

maybe its time for mikrotik to do routerboards for wifi supporting external antennas, some scenarios get great benefits from high gain omnidirectional antennas, for example one floor buildings

is hard to justify a customer why prefer a routerboard having less coverage than a tplink with 5bdi or 9dbi omni antennas,

Good day.
I'll try in the near future to take the unmodified Mikrotik hAp lite ac and compare it with my modification. There will be an extended test.
that will be very interesting !!!!

I'll be waiting for the results

I have done same work with more steps. I removed the test point connector and replaced them with UFL female connector, then use UFL to RP-SMA Male cable for Anttena. below pics shows the steps:
