Using the data set from T-239 to T+963 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 211024B (trigger #1081073)
(Gropp, et al., GCN Circ. 30980).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 154.708, 24.566 deg which is
     RA(J2000)  =  10h 18m 49.9s
     Dec(J2000) = +24d 33' 57.3"
with an uncertainty of 1.0 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 100%.

The mask-weighted light curve shows three episodes.  The first episode
starts from T-60 s, peaks at T+10 s and ends at T+100 s.  The second, and
weakest, episode runs from T+250 to T+400 sec and the third episode starts
around T+500 s, peaks at T+580 s and ends at T+620 s.  The burst came into
the BAT field of view around T-100 sec during a pre-planned slew.
T90 (15-350 keV) is 603.5 +- 20.7 sec (estimated error including systematics).

The time-averaged spectrum from T-56.37 to T+613.08 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.63 +- 0.09.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 6.8 +- 0.3 x 10^-6 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+5.17 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 0.9 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
