Try 

histogram k, discrete frequency 
ylab(10000 "10000" 20000 "20000" 30000 "30000" 40000 "40000")

In addition, it is a matter of taste, but you might consider also 

ylab(10000 "10000" 20000 "20000" 30000 "30000" 40000 "40000", ang(h))

A wild guess is that the 

, ang(h) 

alone might achieve what you want.
