The solution to the problem of far field radiation from an arbitrarily oriented Hertzian dipole in an electrically gyrotropic medium is found with the application of dyadic Green's function (DGF) technique. The form of the DGF, which is expressed as the sum of two single dyads, simplifies the derivation of the far fields significantly in comparison to the existing methods. The far field integral is evaluated analytically using the method of steepest descent. The numerical results for the radiation fields are presented in different frequency bandwidth using Clemmow-Mually-Allis (CMA) diagram. It is shown that the operational frequency bandwidth and the orientation of the antenna, which give the highest directivity and gain, can be determined when the CMA diagram is employed. Our analytical results are compared with the existing ones which were obtained using different techniques. Agreement is observed on all of them. The results presented in this paper can be used for radiation problems involving space exploration, radio astronomy or laboratory plasmas.
