The Fermi surface of the quasi–two-dimensional (2D) organic metal can be regarded as a 2D network of compensated electron and hole orbits coupled by magnetic breakthrough. Simultaneous measurements of the interlayer magnetoresistance and magnetic torque have been performed for various directions of the magnetic field up to 28 in the temperature range from 0.36 to 4.2. Magnetoresistance and de Haas-van Alphen (dHvA) oscillations spectra exhibit frequency combinations typical of such a network. Even though some of the observed magnetoresistance oscillations cannot be interpreted on the basis of either conventional Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations or quantum interference, the temperature and magnetic field (both orientation and magnitude) dependence of all the Fourier components of the dHvA spectra can be consistently accounted for by the dHvA effect on the basis of the Lisfhitz-Kosevich formula. This behaviour is at variance with that currently reported for compounds illustrating the linear chain of coupled orbits model.
