A possible phase transition is evident in the field dependent behavior of the ultrasonic attenuation in UPt3. In the low field region the behavior is linear and in the high field region close in Hc2 the behavior is quadratic in h'=(Hc2-H)/Hc 2. At the crossover there is a small peak in the ultrasonic attenuation. The temperature dependence of the coefficients a(T), for the linear behavior, and b(T), for the quadratic behavior are obtained.
