Using the data set from T-239 to T+963 sec from the recent telemetry
downlink, we report further analysis of BAT GRB 220305A (trigger #1095215)
(Caputo et al., GCN Circ. 31684).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 107.610, -37.703 deg which is
   RA(J2000)  =  07h 10m 26.4s
   Dec(J2000) = -37d 42' 09.2"
with an uncertainty of 1.5 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 25%.

The mask-weighted light curve shows a single-pulse structure that starts
at ~T-15 s, peaks at ~T0, and ends at ~T+11 s. The burst went out of the
BAT FOV at T+225.7 s. T90 (15-350 keV) is 21.12 +- 3.65 sec (estimated
error including systematics).

The time-averaged spectrum from T-15.04 to T+11.02 sec is best fit by
a simple power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged
spectrum is 1.66 +- 0.15.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is
2.0 +- 0.2 x 10^-6 erg/cm2. The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from
T-0.16 sec in the 15-150 keV band is 2.1 +- 0.5 ph/cm2/sec.
All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence level.
