For comment see ibid., vol.49, no.10, p.1839-41 (2002). The arguments presented in the above comment are refuted. It is shown that the author's earlier analysis (1998) presents a generalization of previous high-frequency models by means of the rigorous method of matching the Taylor series. This method is consistent with previous formulations, and can be applied to any model, regardless of the fact that a model cannot be derived as a truncated version of the open form solutions. A detailed comparison of recent high-frequency models is also presented.
