Recent Type II Radio Supernovae
Stockdale, Kaster, Kelley, Panagia, Sramek, Van Dyk, Weiler, & Williams

We present results from the on-going radio monitoring of recent type II supernovae (SNe), including SNe 2005cs, 2004et, 2004dj, 2003ed, 2002hh, 2001em, and 2001gd. Using the Very Large Array (VLA) to monitor these supernovae at 1.3, 2, 3.6, 6 and 20 cm, we present their radio light-curves.From these data we are able to discuss parameterizations and modeling and make predictions of the nature of the progenitors based on previous research. The National Radio Astronomy Observatory is a facility of the National Science Foundation operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc. Matthew Kelley and Brian Kaster are undergraduates at Marquette University. KWW thanks the Office of Naval Research for the 6.1 funding which supports his research.
