    Abstract

    We have made measurements of the 30GHz radio emission from V407 Cyg using the OCRA-p receiver on the Torun telescope between 24 March and 3 October 2010. These follow from the optical and Fermi-LAT detections of the nova outburst (AAVSO Alert 419 / Special Notice 201, ATEL #2487; also see ATEL #2498) and its detections at radio frequency (ATELs #2506, #2511, #2514, #2529, #2536 and #2741). Following from our initial measurements of ~20mJy at 30GHz in late April 2010 (see ATEL #2511), the source brightened to a peak of ~50mJy in mid June before fading to sub-20mJy levels by the end of June.
