Electromagnetic fields associated with the electric current flowing along a horizontal conductor located over perfectly conducting ground are estimated using electromagnetic fields pertinent to acceleration of electric charges. It is shown that the electric and magnetic fields that exist below a long overhead horizontal conductor are nothing but the radiation fields generated by the acceleration of charge at the point of injection of current into the horizontal conductor.
