Abstract Microquasars, or X-ray binaries exhibiting radio jets, have been observed extensively at all wavelengths for the past decade or so. Primarily, they have been observed in the X-ray regimes and the radio. In this paper we review the radio and the X-ray behavior of the first two superluminal microquasars, GRS 1915+105 and GRO J1655-40. We show how GRO J1665-40 really does behave like a ``micro''-quasar based on the similarity of the radio properties between the source and quasars, and we also show some recent X-ray/γ-ray results obtained with INTEGRAL and RXTE on the notorious microquasar, GRS 1915+105.
