It is shown that surface waves are actually contained in complete solutions of excitation problems of cylindrical surface waveguides. The total field can be divided into surface waves and a supplementary field; these field components satisfy certain orthogonality relations between each other. The amplitude of a surface wave which is excited by a dipole or any other power source can be determined without solving the entire excitation problem.
