Using the data set from T-240 to T+700 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 220730A (trigger #1118357)
(Dichiara, et al., GCN Circ. 32431).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 224.988, -69.496 deg which is
   RA(J2000)  =  14h 59m 57.1s
   Dec(J2000) = -69d 29' 44.5"
with an uncertainty of 1.7 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 60%.
The mask-weighted light curve shows a single FRED-shaped pulse from
approximately T-0.05 to T+0.25 seconds. T90 (15-350 keV) is 0.19 +- 0.20 sec
(estimated error including systematics).
The time-averaged spectrum from T-0.04 to T+0.28 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
0.61 +- 0.25.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 1.6 +- 0.2 x 10^-7 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T-0.35 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 1.6 +- 0.3 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
