Using the Simultaneous Quad Infrared Imaging Device (SQIID) on the Kitt
Peak Mayall 4-meter Telescope, we observed GRB 071025 in J, H, K bands
simultaneously, beginnig at UT 2007-10-25-05:56:59. With total exposure
time of 240 sec in all three bands, we clearly detected the afterglow.
Calibrated using local 2MASS sources, the object is at

 J=17.34 +/- 0.05
 H=16.37 +/- 0.05
 K=15.45 +/- 0.05

The photometric errors are dominated by the zeropoint uncertainties from our
 calibration procedure. The photon noise on the measuremens is <0.01.
