of the HETE GRB team, report:

Ulysses, Mars Odyssey-HEND, HETE-FREGATE, and Konus-Wind observed this
GRB at 10425 seconds.  As observed by Ulysses, it had a duration of
approximately  15 seconds, a 25-100 keV fluence of approximately
4.1E-6 erg/cm2, and a peak flux of approximately  6.8E-07 erg/cm2 s
over 0.50 seconds.

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box whose
approximate area is 55 sq. arcmin. and whose coordinates are:

    RA(2000)                              DEC(2000)
 ERROR BOX CENTER:  7 h 24 m 55.03 s      -16 o 16 '  51.55 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 1: 7 h 24 m 19.40 s     -16 o 09 '  44.82 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 2: 7 h 25 m 01.41 s     -16 o 21 '  18.28 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 3: 7 h 24 m 48.66 s     -16 o 12 '  24.84 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 4: 7 h 25 m 30.74 s     -16 o 23 '  58.17 " 

This error box may be improved.
