We continue our VLA monitoring of SN 2006gy, which is among the most luminous supernovae ever seen. On 2008 Feb. 10.0 UT, no radio emission was seen at the optical position with the following 3-sigma upper limits:
8.4 GHz: 0.25 mJy/bm; resolution 1.4",
43 GHz: 0.55 mJy/bm; resolution 0.3".

(For our previous upper limits, see Atel 1254.; for other radio upper limits see Argo et al., Atel 1084 and Chandra et al., Atel 1082)
