We report studies of the angular dependence of the transition fields for the magnetic field induced spin density wave (FISDW) states and of the frequency of the rapid magnetic oscillations in the Bechgaard salt (TMTSF)2ClO4. As H is rotated away from c*, the transition field positions and the oscillation frequency increase, exhibiting the conventional inverse cosine behavior expected for a anisotropic electronic system. The results verify that both effects are orbital and two dimensional in nature. We find no evidence for a nonmonotonic behavior of the threshold field with angle that has been predicted by a recent theory.
