"I observed the Type Ib SN 2006jc (CBET 666) with the Very Large Array on Oct 14.7 and Oct 15.7 UT as part of an ongoing program to study the radio properties of Type Ibc supernovae. SN 2006jc is not detected at 4.9, 8.5 or 22.5 GHz. At a distance of 24 Mpc, the radio luminosity of SN 2006jc 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."
