The energy gap due to anion ordering introduces essential differences for electrons of two particular subbands in a magnetic field. The magnetic breakdown restores the behavior of the prototype PF6 in an irregular manner as the field increases. The fast oscillations (periodic in 1/H) appear to be due to the fact that the electron trajectories in ClO4 coincide with those in PF6 only at specific values of H. The fast oscillations superimpose on the cyclotron-resonance-type singularities.
