The bright Galactic nova in Lupus (ATel #9538, #9539, #9550, CBET #4322) was observed two weeks after discovery using the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) at 19 GHz on 2016 Oct 9.1 UT. No radio emission was detected at the nova's location, to a 3-sigma upper limit of 0.08 milliJy. This first radio observation was obtained 10 days after the tentative Fermi/LAT detection (ATel #9594). We are planning future radio monitoring observations of this nova, and encourage all multi-wavelength observations.
We would like to extend our thanks to the ATCA staff for enabling these observations. The Australia Telescope Compact Array is funded by the Commonwealth of Australia for operation as a National Facility managed by CSIRO.
