The purpose of this paper is to calculate the radiation from bent single-code optical fibers along arbitrarily oriented curved shape, which we call 'single-mode optical fiber antennas' (SMOFA). A generalized voluie current cethod (VCM) is used in order to determine the radiated power of a N-iultiturn optical fiber antenna in the fore of circular helix. The resulting loss formula reduces in the case of N1 to the well known atennuation forsula of the the bent single-code fibers.
