Thanks Greg, that's working fine and is a fabulous starting point.  Much appreciated!

I see there are several ways of having multiple plots: split.screen, mfcol etc.  I have now got multiple dials going using split.screen, but I was wondering, are all approaches to multiple plots effectively the same or do they have different merits?  Is there an approach best suited to regularly updated displays?
