The solution of a problem on propagation of a spherical electromagnetic wave in space, free from sources, in case of isotropic medium on assumption of rotational symmetry, is offered. As a result of solution of the Maxwell uniform equations in a spherical coordinates the detailed analytical expressions for components of fields of axially symmetric spherical E- and H-waves, without use of Hertz's vector, accepted in electrodynamics, are obtained. The analysis of Umov-Poynting vector components with given assumptions is also made.
