We triggered our NRAO Target Of Opportunity program "Exploring Transients in the Local Universe" and used the Expanded Very Large Array (EVLA) to observe the field of view toward PTF10vdl (ATEL#2862 an ATEL#2863), discovered by the Palomar Transient Factory . The EVLA observations were made on September 18.26 UT at a center frequency of 8.46 GHz.
We detect no radio emission from the position of PTF10vdl to a 3-sigma limit of 105 microJy.
Further observations are planned.
