(Caltech) report:

We observed the position initially reported for the GRB 050306
X-ray afterglow by Perri et al. (GCN 3075), RA 18:49:14.0, Dec
-09:09:10.4 (J2000), with the Max-Planck-Millimeter Bolometer
(MAMBO-2) array at the IRAM 30-m telescope on

   8 March 2005,  between UT 8 and 9 h,

and obtained a non-detection of

   S_nu(250 GHz,1.20mm) = 0.26 +/- 0.55 mJy  

(1 sigma error). The MAMBO-2 bolometer detectors cover 210-290
GHz (half power). The likely optical afterglow reported by
D'Avanzo et al. (GCN 3089) is 1.9 arcsec from our pointing
position, and well within our 10.7 arcsec FWHM beam.
