National Facility), Steven Tingay (Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy),
Chris Phillips (Australia Telescope National Facility), Gregory Taylor
(University of New Mexico), Mark Wieringa (Australia Telescope National
Facility) and Ralph Martin (Perth Observatory) report:

We observed the BAT refined position of the GRB 080411 (GCN 7591) at 4.8
and 8.456 GHz with the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) on June
01, 2008 between 03:43:05 UT and 09:43:35 UT.

We did not detect a radio source at the BAT position of the GRB 080411
(GCN 7591). The radio flux density at the GRB position is -0.101 +/-
0.324 mJy at 4.8 GHz and 0.188 +/- 0.374 mJy at 8.456 GHz (1-sigma).

The Australia Telescope Compact Array (/ Parkes telescope / Mopra
telescope / Long Baseline Array) is part of the Australia Telescope
which is funded by the Commonwealth of Australia for operation as a
National Facility managed by CSIRO.
