Radiation of ultra relativistic charged particles moving with small pitch angles along the spiral trajectory winded around curved magnetic force line is considered. The general radiation formulae, which can reduce to the formulae for either synchrotron or curvature radiation in the limiting cases, have been obtained. When the velocity of cyclotron rotation and the drift velocity are similar it is necessary to take into account the curvature of magnetic force line.
