I actually just got a  RD-5G30-LW.  The connectors are just RP-SMA.  You'll have to trim the shroud that covers the wires / connection to the radio.  Additionally, things seem to fit a bit better with a RF Elements StationBox S enclosure.

I also got the precision alignment kit, which I found MUCH easier to deal with than the Mikrotik setup.

Next on my todo list is some performance comparison with the MTAD-5G-30D3-PA.
