We re-examine some the assumptions underlying low frequency scattering of electromagnetic waves. We find an inconsistency in the basic field expansions, and propose a new ansatz through which the inconsistency is addressed. We illustrate by comparing the two methods for scattering of plane waves by a perfectly conducting cylinder, for which the exact solution is known.
