We observed the Type IIn SN 2008ip (CBET 1641) with the Very Large Array on 2009 Jan 5.34 and 5.37 UT at frequencies of 8.46 and 22.5 GHz, respectively. No radio counterpart is detected at either frequency. We place 3-sigma upper limits, on the radio emission at the optical SN position, of 0.096 mJy (8.46 GHz) and 0.222 mJy (22.5 GHz), respectively. We thank the VLA staff for making these observations possible.
