The γ‐ray telescope COMPTEL onboard GRO has so far located 6 gamma‐ray bursts which occurred in its ∼1 sr field of view. The positions of the sources were derived by the maximum‐entropy method. Systematic and statistical uncertainties for the four strongest bursts are approximately 1° to 2° and can be reduced in future analysis.
