"I observed the Type Ibc SN 2006fo (IAUC 8750, CBET 643) with the Very Large Array on Sep 26.2 UT as part of an ongoing program to study the radio properties of SNe Ibc discovered through the SDSS SN survey. SN 2006fo is not detected at 8.5 or 22.5 GHz. At a distance of 88 Mpc, the radio luminosity of SN 2006fo is at least a factor of 100 lower than that of SN 1998bw at a similar epoch (Kulkarni et al., 1998, Nature, 395, 663). Further observations are planned. The National Radio Astronomy Observatory is a facility of the National Science Foundation operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc."
