We appreciate that authors Kerr et al. concur that our paper [ibid., vol.42, no.7, p.1387-98 (2004)] provides the right approach to the analysis of potential interference from anthropogenic sources to remote sensing satellites. The potential for such interference is likely to grow as new active systems are developed, necessitating acceptable procedures for interference analysis based on accepted scientific knowledge and engineering principles. While some simple clarifications are in order to improve the acceptability of our procedure, we suggest, however, that Kerr et al. have not studied our paper in detail and misinterpret several points.
