R. N. Ogley and T. D. C. Ash, Open Univeristy; and R. P. Fender, Sussex University, report that a search was made on Aug. 18.17-18.69 UT for a radio counterpart to the recently detected x- ray source XTE J1755-324 (IAUC 6710). Observations were made using the Australia Telescope Compact Array at 1384 and 2496 MHz, and no radio emission was detected down to a level of 0.3 mJy (1384 MHz) and 0.2 mJy (2496 MHz) within the 1' error box of XTE. The nearest source detected was 7' from the reported position of the x-ray source. At the time of these observations, XTE J1755-324 had an x- ray (2-12 keV) flux of about 7 counts/s, measured by the ASM on XTE.
