We used the Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy (CARMA) to observe the field of view toward PTF10vdl (ATEL#2862), discovered by the Palomar Transient Factory . The observations began at September 18, 2010 04:18 UT and continued for 4.9 hours. The mean frequency of the observations was 97.5 GHz with a total bandwidth of 8 GHz. Instrumental drifts and atmospheric phase fluctuations were calibrated through periodic observations of 3C454.3, and absolute flux calibration was established by observing Neptune.
PTF10vdl was not detected with a measured flux density of 0.13 +/- 0.13 mJy.
