The quasiparticle contribution to the frequency-dependent electric conductivity in the presence of randomly distributed impurities is calculated within mean-field theory for spin density waves as formed in quasi–one-dimensional conductors like Bechgaard salts. Interchain hopping is taken into account and the effects of imperfect nesting are considered. In case of an electric field perpendicular to the chain direction there is no collective contribution to the conductivity and our results are directly applicable to recent measurements on both and quenched . The experimental data are well described by the theory in its clean limit, with somewhat larger scattering in the salt.
