As part of a search for radio emission from SN 2009H in NGC 1084 (ATEL #1915), recent VLA observations have detected radio emission in the vicinity of three previously-identified, non-transient sources. In the 8.4601 GHz observations made on 2009 Jan 27.4, we have identified radio emission near: 1.) SDSS J024554.48-073624.6: 4.68 mJy at 02h45s54.47s -07d36'24.7"; 2.) the nucleus of NGC 1084: 0.43 mJy at 02h45m59.89s DEC -07d34'42.7"; and 3.) An optically identified HII region (NGC 1084:[HK83] 13): 0.32 mJy at 02h46m01.97s -07d34'27.7".

We would like to extend our thanks to the VLA scheduling officers and telescope operators for their support of our target of opportunity supernova observing program. The NRAO is a facility of the National Science Foundation operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc.
