Unbound states in 28Ne and 25F were populated in the reaction of a 102 MeV/nucleon 29Na beam on a beryllium target. The measured decay energy of 32(22) keV in the 27Ne+n system corresponds to an unbound excited state in 28Ne at 3.86(11) MeV. This is the first measured unbound state of 28Ne. The decay energy of the 24F+n system was measured as 300(170) keV. This places the second measured unbound state of 25F at 4.66(17) MeV.
