[amsat-bb] Fox Telem MAC Install issue...

The Mac install of FoxTelem is built for an older version of Mac OS X and
uses Apple's own implementation of Java 1.6.  This is now difficult to get
working with the latest OS.

My recommendation is to grab the windows or linux install and run the
FoxTelem.jar file directly.  It should run with a double click if you have
installed java.  If not, you should be able to run it from the command line
prompt with java -jar FoxTelem.jar

It is harder to run the jar file directly from the mac install because it
is hidden inside the application.

Let me know if this works.
