T. Laskar, A. Zauderer, and E. Berger (Harvard) report:

"We observed the position of GRB 140311A (Racusin et al; GCN 15944) with
the VLA beginning on 2014 March 14.35 UT (2.48 days after the burst). At a mean
frequency of 21.8 GHz, we detect a radio source with a preliminary flux density
of ~ 0.25 mJy at

RA = 13:57:13.2763 +/- 0.0002
Dec = 00:38:31.423 +/- 0.003

consistent with the enhanced Swft/XRT position (Evans et al.; GCN 15959)
and the optical position (Xu et al.; GCN 15947). Follow-up observations are
