Using the data set from T-239 to T+963 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 231230A (trigger #1205319)
(Moss, et al., GCN Circ. 35436).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 245.223, 58.132 deg which is
   RA(J2000)  =  16h 20m 53.5s
   Dec(J2000) = +58d 07' 54.2"
with an uncertainty of 1.1 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 35%.

The mask-weighted light curve shows a complex structure extending from
around T+0 to T+20.  T90 (15-350 keV) is 15.2 +- 0.9 sec (estimated error including systematics).

The time-averaged spectrum from T+0.26 to T+17.26 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.28 +- 0.10.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 2.1 +- 0.1 x 10^-6 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+7.64 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 2.2 +- 0.4 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence

The results of the batgrbproduct analysis are available at
