Using the data set from T-239 to T+200 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 221016A (trigger #1129775)
(Page, et al., GCN Circ. 32774). The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 38.938, -34.615 deg which is
RA(J2000) = 02h 35m 45.2s
Dec(J2000) = -34d 36' 54.2"
with an uncertainty of 1.0 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 53%.
The light curve shows a single peaked pulse. T90 (15-350 keV) is 21.86 +- 5.70 sec
(estimated error including systematics).
The time-averaged spectrum from T-3.18 to T+29.18 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model. The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.28 +- 0.08. The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 2.3 +- 0.1 x 10^-06 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+0.03 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 3.4 +- 0.3 ph/cm2/sec. All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
