N. Palliyaguru (TTU) and A. Corsi (TTU) report on behalf of a larger

We imaged again the position of the iPTF transient 15cyk (Singer et al. GCN
18337) located in the error region of LIGO/Virgo G184098 (LVC GCN 18330),
with the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA). A provisional reduction of
the images collected during our observations gives the upper-limits (3
sigma) reported in the summary below, where we also include the results of
the first VLA epoch (Palliyaguru et al. GCN 18420, GCN 18474).

Epoch 1 (15 Oct 2015 11:20:32-12:05:27 UT)
Freq | Flux (3 sigma UL)
6 GHz | < 45 uJy
Epoch 2 (06 Dec 2015 04:52:11-05:00:07 UTC)
Freq | Flux
6 GHz | < 34 uJy
Epoch 3 (20 Jan 01:55:31-02:59:40 UTC)
Freq | Flux
6 GHz | < 30 uJy
