Using the data set from T-60 to T+243 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 121201A (trigger #540178)
(Yershov, et al., GCN Circ. 14025). The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 13.473, -42.929 deg, which is
RA(J2000) = 00h 53m 53.6s
Dec(J2000) = -42d 55' 45.9"
with an uncertainty of 2.3 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 100%.
The mask-weighted light curve shows 3 main peaks starting at ~T-23,
peaking at ~T-18, -8, & +4 sec, and ending at ~T+55 sec. T90 (15-350 keV) is
85 +- 21 sec (estimated error including systematics).
The time-averaged spectrum from T-24.00 to T+71.00 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model. The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.90 +- 0.21. The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 7.8 +- 1.0 x 10^-7 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T-9.00 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 0.8 +- 0.1 ph/cm2/sec. All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
