It is not surprising that our paper attracted Dr. Wait's interest, since this subject is one of his many contributions. We mentioned that previous studies are “incomplete” because they report either magnetic fields or electric fields excited by a step-junction excitation that is only a special case (as reaffirmed by Dr. Wait). We presented both electric and magnetic fields excited by an impulsive excitation from which the EM field excited by any arbitrary excitation can be obtained by a convolution. This information was needed because we attempted to find the optimal excitation that can excite a maximum electric field. In our humble opinion, our solution is “exact” because we solved Maxwell's equation exactly within the assumption of frequency independent conductivity and permittivity. The adjective “complete” means that we have presented complete expressions for both the electric and magnetic fields. It is not our intention in using these adjectives to be immodest
