As part of our continuing radio monitoring of the radio and X-ray magnetar 1E1547.0-5408 at the Parkes telescope, we observed it on 09/01/22 at 18:30 UT for 2 hours, within 18 hours of the first reports of renewed X-ray (SGR) bursting activity from it (GCNs #8833, #8835, #8837, #8838, #8841, #8845, #8848, ATEL #1904). We detect no radio pulsations in these data. Frequent observations will continue as part of our long-term monitoring program.
