A detailed search for coincident pulses has been made of VHF radio recordings taken at widely spaced stations around the times of 19 celestial y-ray bursts between 1970 and 1973. No coincident pulses were found above a sensitivity level of the order of 10^(-12) ergs cm^(-2) (event)^(-1) in a 1-MHz bandwidth.
