We observed a Type IIn supernova SN 2008aj (CBET 1259) with the VLA in 8.46 GHz frequency band on 2008 Feb 19.41 UT. We do not detect any radio source at the supernova position (CBET 1259). The peak flux density at the supernova position is 17 +/- 37 uJy. We thank VLA staff for making this observation possible.
