The K/β^+ ratio in the decays of ^(19)Ne and ^(15)O have been measured as (9.6 ± 0.3) × 10^(-4) and (10.7 ± 0.6) × 10^(-4), respectively. A gas-flow proportional counter, operating in anticoincidence with the surrounding plastic scintillator, was used. Theoretical K/β^+ ratios for ^(19)Ne and ^(15)O were computed, using exchange-overlap corrections calculated by Vatai and, separately, exchange corrections extrapolated from the results of Bahcall for 14 ≤ Z ≤ 37. The experimental results were found to be in better agreement with Vatai's calculations.
