Plane wave propagation in two kinds of Faraday chiral media, where<br />Faraday rotation is combined with optical activity, is studied to<br />examine methods of controlling chirality. The two types of media studied<br />are magnetically biased chiroplasmas and chiroferrites. For propagation<br />along the biasing magnetic field, four wavenumbers and two wave<br />impedances are found which are dependent on the strength of the biasing<br />field. Dispersion diagrams for the chiroplasma case are plotted.<br />Propagation at the plasma frequency of the chiroplasma is also<br />investigated
