Fak, van Dijk and Wills (FDW) question our interpretation of elastic neutron-scattering experiments in the
antiferromagnetic phase of UPt3. They state that our analysis is incorrect because we average over magnetic
structures that are disallowed by symmetry. We disagree with FDW and reply to their criticism. FDW also point
out that we have mistaken the magnetic field direction in the experiment reported by N. H. van Dijk et al.
[Phys. Rev. B 58, 3186 (1998)]. We correct this error and note that our previous conclusion is also valid
for the correct field orientation.
