We present results from the on-going radio monitoring of Supernova (SN) 2004et in NGC 6946 and SN 2004dj in NGC 2403. Using the Very Large Array to monitor the supernovae at 1.3, 2, 3.6, 6 and 20 cm, we present radio light-curves of these type IIP SNe. We discuss parameterizations and modeling of this data and make predictions of the nature of the progenitor stars 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. BCK and MTK are undergraduates at Marquette University. CJS is a Cottrell Scholar sponsored by Research Corporation. KWW is supported by the Office of Naval Research.
