Subject: IAU circular submission

This is a copy of what Guy Pooley and I have just submitted to
the IAU Circulars.  Reading between the lines there is no significant
sign of change at 2 cm over a bit more than a day, so this is probably
not going to be a very fast radio transient like GM Sgr.  The next
VLA observation should be this evening, about 24 hours after the last
VLA observation reported below.  It hopefully will be on the GBI 
program starting today.

>(National Radio Astronomy Observatory) report: "we have made Ryle
>Telescope (RT) and Very Large Array (VLA) observations of a radio
>counterpart to the X-ray transient XTE J1859+226 (IAUC 7274). On Oct.
>11.88 UT the RT detected a roughly 10 mJy radio source at 15 GHz with
>RA=18h58m42s, Decl.=+22o39'10" (equinox 2000; uncertainties 0s.5 and
>30"). A further RT observation on Oct. 12.86 detected 12.5 mJy
>(uncertainty 1.5 mJy). The VLA observations on Oct. 13.06 UT confirm
>the presence of a radio source with preliminary flux densities of 8.7,
>10.8, 11.1, 11.2, and 11.3 mJy at frequencies of 1.4, 4.9, 8.5, 14.9,
>and 22.5 GHz, with a position of RA=18h58m41s.491, Decl.=+22o39'29".8
>(equinox 2000; uncertainty 0.3").  This is consistent with the position
>of the optical counterpart reported by Garnavich et al. in IAUC 7276.
>No radio source was present at this position in the NVSS survey in Feb.
>1995 with an upper limit of about 3 mJy."
