We used both CARMA and EVLA to observe PTF11iqb (ATEL #3510), a young Type IIn supernova in NGC 151. The CARMA observation began at UT 2011 July 25.4 and ended 3.7 hours later. We report a 3-sigma upper limit of 0.54 mJy/beam in the 3-mm band (93 GHz, center frequency). EVLA observations began at UT 2011 July 25.44. No radio counterpart was detected in X-band (8.5 GHz) with 3-sigma upper limit of 0.168 mJy/beam.

We thank the CARMA and EVLA staff for scheduling this target of opportunity.
