The fourth sound resonance experiment has been done on liquid 3He in 98.5% porosity aerogel. Aerogel was grown inside the pores among the sintered silver powder to avoid the vibration of the aerogel strands by the sound experiment. The measurement was performed at zero magnetic field and 27 bar. We observed the phase transition between the A-like and B-like phases and also their coexistent state. The A-like to B-like phase transition occurs not at a temperature but within a temperature band. In this band, the A-like phase gradually converts to the B-like phase. Possible picture of the coexistent state is discussed.
