Using the data set from T-240 to T+302 sec from the recent telemetry
downlink, we report further analysis of BAT GRB 201104B (trigger #1004168)
(Sbarufatti et al., GCN Circ. 28825).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 5.215, 7.834 deg which is
   RA(J2000)  =  00h 20m 51.5s
   Dec(J2000) = +07d 50' 03.6"
with an uncertainty of 1.0 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 53%.

The mask-weighted light curve shows several overlapping pulses that
start at ~T-9 s and end at ~T+1 s. The main peak occurs at ~T-8 s.
T90 (15-350 keV) is 8.66 +- 0.16 sec (estimated error including

The time-averaged spectrum from T-8.86 to T+0.88 sec is best fit
by a simple power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged
spectrum is 1.47 +- 0.07.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band
is 1.8 +- 0.1 x 10^-6 erg/cm2. The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from
T-8.52 sec in the 15-150 keV band is 4.1 +- 0.3 ph/cm2/sec.
All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence level.
