Beginning at 2008 Jan 10.2 UT, I observed the radio bright Type Ibc SN 2007uy with the VLA as part of a monitoring campaign to study the non-thermal emission from the SN. I note that the position of the extremely bright X-ray transient within NGC 2770 (ATEL 1353) lies within the field-of-view of the radio observation. No radio source is detected at the position of the X-ray transient. At 8.46 GHz, I place an upper limit of 0.1 mJy on the flux density of the transient source. Radio observations are on-going.
