First order analysis, previously made, to determine the relation between position and velocity errors at the start and end of a Hohmann transfer is extended to cover a prior phase of low altitude circular orbit parking. The results are used to find the effects of uncorrected first injection errors upon the parameters of the final orbit. In particular the effects of prolonged parking are studied. Author
