GRB 191221B: AGILE/MCAL observations

New GCN issued: GCN #26549 (F. Longo et al.).
This GRB was also previously reported as an automatic GCN/AGILE-MCAL ALERT NOTICE, trigger ID 504045551.

The GCN/AGILE-MCAL TRIGGER ALERT NOTICES, active since May 11, 2019, alert the community on transient events that trigger the AGILE MCAL on-board trigger logic in one or more predefined timescales (sub-ms, 1 ms, 16 ms, 64 ms, 256 ms, 1024 ms, and 8192 ms), and are successively selected and identified as GRBs by an offline burst search algorithm that yields total significance values greater than 5 sigma.

Since the “Modify Sites Config” webform page has not yet been updated to encorporate the AGILE_MCAL_ALERT type, just send an email (especially with your SITE_NAME) to saying you want this AGILE-MCAL ALERT notice type added to your configuration.
