We used the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) to perform a radio
observation of the short GRB 200411A. The rapidly scheduled observations
began on 2020 Apr 11.25 UT for 5 hours (1.5 hrs post-burst; Fermi GBM Team
GCN 27535, A. Tohuvavohu et al., GCN 27536). No radio source was detected
at the enhanced Swift-XRT position (J.P. Osborne et al., GCN 27538), with
preliminary 3 sigma upper-limits of 45 microJy and 36 microJy at 5.5 and 9 GHz,
respectively. Further observations are planned.

We thank the ATCA and CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (CASS) staff for
scheduling these observations.
