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. 

Nick,

Both suggestions work perfectly (and ang(h) does look better).  Your wild guess was unfortunately just too wild.

hist k, freq discrete ylab(10000(10000)40000,ang(h)) 

produces nicely horizontal 1.0e+0.4 etc.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Chris.
