Subjects: Radio, Supernovae

The Type IIP supernova 2008in CBET (1636, 1638), in the galaxy M61/NGC 4303, was the subject of a followup VLA search on 2009 Jan 26.6 (UT) at 8.4601 GHz. No radio emission was detected at the supernova location with a 3-sigma upper limit of 0.18 mJy. This source was not detected in previous radio observations reported in ATEL 1883. No further VLA observations are currently planned. We would like to extend our thanks to the VLA scheduling officers and telescope operators for their support of our observing program.
