How can I separate PCB antenna and SMA connector?

I am designing a prototype PCB for a Lora node. It will have an SMA connector (J2) and a PCB antenna. Switching RF connectors are not available in my area, so as an amateur enthusiast what is a good way to separate the antennas?

They usually put a 3-pad solder jump.

  1. The central pad is connected to the LORA integrated circuit.
  2. The left pad is connected to your SMA connector.
  3. The right pad is connected to the printed antenna.
