    Yeah, I forgot about that with the latest version. I think this is what I did to make it work:

    open a terminal and type:
    sudo spctl --master-disable

    I was trying to help a friend buy an JLA3, but they're out of stock almost everywhere. Any news on JLA4?

    The description though was poor, using a term like bomb in the same description as a rocketry altimeter.

    Whatever happened with Adept? They were a Force in the 90's.
    Site still up:
    http://www.adeptrocketry.com/

    Does anyone still use them? Seems like Perfectflite, Missileworks,
    and Jolly Logic has taken over. Severe competition in the altm field.

    I have several adepts. They are at end of life and no longer sold or produced. You may find some for sale on the forum.

    Oh, thanks for info. I thought they were still on the site.
    I see he sells ham FoxHunting xmtrs. I remember making a CB tracker long ago, built a loop antenna from the Amateur Handbook. Critical thing is you have to have an S-meter on the rcvr to zero in on the direction of the signal, audio level does not work because the dynamic range of THE EAR is too wide.
