We have investigated transverse continuous wave NMR in a geometry where the modes are influenced by susceptibility anisotropy. The helium sample is separated by mylar foils into layers 12 mu m thick perpendicular to the external dc magnetic field. In this geometry l is constrained to be parallel to the field and d switches from parallel to perpendicular to the field over a small range of field around the dipole unlocking field. The mode frequencies below this critical field yield a value for the susceptibility anisotropy. Above the critical field the expected negative frequency shift is observed, as well as a positive frequency shift due to bulk material and an unexpected signal close to the Larmor frequency.
