You're referring to RF overload. I really would not worry about it in this case especially if you're trying to crack your own network. You'll need a wireless client to pass data on it so your Ralink card can collect the packets you'll need for cracking. There are cases where a device can get damaged but it's not entirely common, especially in this application. It's more meant that you should stay a meter away from the wireless access point that you're trying to crack. But again, damage isn't THAT common.

You don't need to turn off your Airport card if you're using an external device.
Just an FYI.

Uninstall the Ralink drivers.
You can find a DMG there for the device which includes an uninstaller.
You'll probably need to restart your computer.
Launch KisMAC.
Go to preferences.
Select the rt73 driver (your device has an rt73 chipset).
Exit prefs.
Try to scan.

If that doesn't work, repeat the steps after deleting the KisMAC preference files. ~/Library/Preferences/de.binaervarianz.kismac.plist OR ~/Library/ Preferences/com.kismac-ng.kismac.plist OR ~/Library/Preferences/ org.kismac-ng.kismac.plist (where '~' is your home folder)

Should fix it.
