A characteristic of a gyroelectromagnetic uniaxial medium is that its permittivity and permeability tensors have the same preferred axis. Dyadic analysis is used to obtain expressions for plane waves in such a medium, and their characteristics are explored. Conditions for incidental and pathological unirefringence are identified; and expressions for time-averaged Poynting vectors and time-averaged energy densities are obtained. Canonical sources for this medium are also identified.
