A.J. van der Horst (University of Amsterdam) reports on behalf of a larger

"We observed the position of the short burst GRB 050925 at 4.9 GHz with
the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope at Sep 25 13.48 UT to Sep 26 1.47
UT, i.e. 0.18 - 0.68 days after the burst (GCN 4034).
No radio sources are seen in the refined Swift-BAT error circle (GCN 4037)
above a 3-sigma level of 72 microJy. We measure a formal flux of 44 +/- 24
microJy at the center of the error circle (GCN 4037).
We note there is a bright radio source, with a flux of 878 +/- 31 microJy,
just outside this error circle at RA 20h13m47.8s, Dec +34d18'38" (J2000)."
