We have extended our previous work and searched specifically for pulses from the galactic centre (GC), which might be correlated with the events reported by Weber. To discriminate against local interference we looked for pulses received simultaneously by widely spaced receivers; although our results are negative, they allow upper limits to be placed on the radio energy emitted in pulses from the GC.
