The long GRB 221006A (MAXI/GSC detection: Mihara et al.,
GCN Circ. 32626) was marginally detected in the ground analysis
of the CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (CGBM) data near the 
MAXI trigger time at 00:57:09 UTC on October 6, 2022.  
The burst signal was seen by only HXM detectors.

The burst light curve shows a faint signal which starts at T+0.8 sec,
peaks at T+9.8 sec and ends at T+26.8 sec.  The T90 and T50 
durations measured by the HXM2 data are 24.0 +/- 2.0 sec and 
14.0 +/- 2.0 sec (7-100 keV), respectively.  The highest significance
during the burst is 4.6 sigma at T+15.8 sec with HXM2 data in the 7 - 10 keV band.

The ground-processed light curve is available at

The CALET data used in this analysis are provided by
the Waseda CALET Operation Center located at Waseda University.
