As a MAC beginner I now found the following solution:

  1. Using "Finder" press "command+shift+G" and look for the "/System" folder.

  2. Follow the following path: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport (In my case I had the problem that the path did not look -exactly- as proposed by some internet instructions, so I couldn't copy paste the given links...)

  3. Double click on "airport". The program will be executed in the terminal. Copy the path.

  4. Type "sudo" to the terminal to get root rights, paste the path to the terminal an add "-c36". It will look like this "sudo /System".../airport -c36".

  5. Press enter, type your passwort and you hopefully have changed to monitor mode channel.
