We have measured the penetration depth in the superconductor κ-(ET)2Cu(NCS)2 as a function of magnetic field at constant temperature. We consistently find a sharp transition as the experiment is repeated with the sample at different orientations with respect to the magnetic field. When the magnetic field is near parallel to the conducting planes we see an inflection in the data that may indicate a change of state. We have also shown that the tunnel diode oscillator can be used effectively in ms pulsed magnetic fields.
