Abstract

The authors present X-ray time histories for the radio-jet sources GRS 1915+105 and GRO J1655-40 observed by the GRANAT/WATCH all-sky monitor at 8-20 keV. GRS 1915+105 is extremely variable on the time scales of months to years. The analysis of a 3-year data set gives no evidence for periodicity in its X-ray intensity. The light curve of GRO J1655-40 consists of strong outbursts alternating with periods of low flux.
