Lauren Rhodes, Rob Fender (Oxford), Dave Green, Dave Titterington (Cambridge) report:

We observed the field of the afterglow candidate GRB 240414A (GCN #36083) with the Arcminute Microkelvin Imager Large-Array (AMI-LA) at 15.5 GHz beginning at 18:54UT on 20-Apr-2024 for a total of 4 hours. The flux standard 3c286 was used to calibrate the bandpass response and flux scale of the AMI-LA and J1219+4829 was used as an interleaved complex gain calibrator.

We do not detect any radio emission at the position of the afterglow candidate as reported in GCN #36102 at a 3 sigma upper limit of 297uJy/beam.

We thank the staff at the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory for carrying out these observations and operating the AMI-LA.
