Abstract

We describe a ground-based effort to find and study afterglows at centimeter and millimeter wavelengths. We have observed all well-localized gamma-ray bursts in the Northern and Southern sky since BeppoSAX first started providing rapid positions in early 1997. Of the 23 GRBs for which X-ray afterglows have been detected, 10 have optical afterglows and 9 have radio afterglows. A growing number of GRBs have both X-ray and radio afterglows but lack a corresponding optical afterglow.
