Using the data set from T-240 to T+962 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 200107B (trigger #948219)
(M. G. Bernardini et al., GCN Circ. 26661).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 107.067, -83.716 deg which is
   RA(J2000)  =  07h 08m 16.0s
   Dec(J2000) = -83d 42' 56.5"
with an uncertainty of 1.2 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 78%.

The mask weighted light curve shows complex multi-peak structures with a duration of ~100 s.
The overall structure starts at ~T-40 s and lasts till ~T+80s.
T90 (15-350 keV) is 86.68 +- 11.64 sec (estimated error including systematics).

The time-averaged spectrum from T-29.86 to T+77.04 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.41 +- 0.10.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 3.0 +- 0.2 x 10^-06 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+36.09 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 1.9 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
