Abstract : Multi-wavelength follow-up of gamma-ray sources in the galactic plane has been highly successful, resulting in the discovery of a large number of millisecond pulsars, and novae as an entirely new class of gamma-ray emitter. Many gamma-ray sources in this region are still unidentified, and the probability of new discoveries is high. We were awarded 8 hours of VLA observing time. Several transients were examined but in the end no VLA time was triggered.
