Abstract : The general theory of energy attenuation of test charge particle in a cold and collisional plasma has been developed. The effects of collisions on plasma parameters have been brought about. The radiation characteristics of spiralling test particles have been discussed. In presence of collisions it is found that absorption is associated with radiation. Estimates of radiated and absorbed power by test charge of different energies have been made and the role of collision on the power spectrum has been studied. These effects are shown with the help of various graphs. Further, in the second part of the report the author has discussed the propagation of VLF waves radiated by Cerenkov process, specially in the whistler mode.
