I'm assuming that your network looks something like this;

1.1.1.1<----LAN--->2.2.2.2<----radio--->3.3.3.3 (and everyone else!)
LAN mach            ka9q                destination

Now, what is the LAN machine ARPing for? The ka9q system or the destination.
If your getting ARPs for (in the example) 3.3.3.3 then you have a routing
table problem in the LAN machine. The routing table for the LAN machine
should be something like;
  2.2.2.2 eth0
  default eth0 2.2.2.2
So everyting goes to the ka9q system, and we get that via the ethernet
port.

You may have problems with return traffic (3.3.3.3 may arp for 1.1.1.1 to
reply).  Most people kludge it by making the ka9q system proxy arp for the
LAN machine. Ugly but it works.
