"We observed GRB 210702A (Lien et al., GCN 30351) with the Australia
Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) at multiple frequencies beginning on 2021
July 06 05:00 UT. We detect a radio counterpart at 16.7, 21.2, and 34 GHz
at a position consistent with the X-ray position (D'Elia et al., GCN
30358), optical position (Lien et al., GCN 30351; Kuin et al., GCN 30356),
and mm-band position (Laskar et al., GCN 30423) with a flux density of ~
0.8 mJy at 34 GHz at a mid-time of 3.50 days after the burst.

Further observations are planned.

We thank the CSIRO staff for approving and scheduling these observations."
