The radiation characteristics of an axially oriented electric dipole situated at the center of an infinitely long, cylindrical column of warm plasma are investigated. Two types of surface waves are excited along the plasma column and their dispersion and power relations are examined. The radiation pattern in the far-zone and the radiation resistance arising from the space waves are evaluated and their dependence on the source frequency and the radius of the plasma column is discussed.
