The infinitely long circular cylindrical antenna driven at some cross section by a localized electromotive force, V, circumscribing the cylinder in a peripheral band is considered. The asymptotic expression for the current at large distances from the driving e.m.f. is derived using the saddle point method. It is shown that the amplitude of this current is proportional to the reciprocal of the logarithm of axial distance from the driving e.m.f.
