report:

The 25cm robotic telescope FRAM-ORM at La Palma (Spain)
reacted robotically to the alert of GRB181228A (Moss et
al, GCNC 23570), obtaining a series of 20s R-band images
starting at 02:53:51.1UT, i.e. 34s post trigger.

We do not detect any new source in comparison to USNO-B1.0
catalog neither in single images (3-sigma limit R>~17.1)
nor in a combined 20x20s frame (mean exp time 269s post
trigger, 3-sigma limit R>~18.7).
