Here, to test out these claims and counterclaims, we calculate the time delay in the limit of an instantaneous gravitational force, and find that the velocity-dependent terms are in complete agreement with previous PPN calculations, with no dependence on the speed of gravity.

Calculating the time-delay integral is straightforward, so long as we calculate the effective distance correctly for our chosen value of cg .

We conclude that his calculation is erroneous, since the time-delay integral we calculated had nothing to do with the speed of gravity, which we took to be instantaneous.
