We present high resolution MERLIN radio images of multiple relativistic ejections from GRS 1915+105 in 1997 October / November. The observations were made at a time of complex radio behaviour, corresponding to multiple optically-thin outbursts and several days of rapid radio flux oscillations. This activity followed � 20 days of a plateau state of inverted-spectrum radio emission and hard, quasi-stable X-ray emission. The radio imaging resolved four major ejection events from the system.

We present GMRT observations of the Galactic microquasar GRS 1915+105 at 1.28 GHz for 8 days from 2001 June 18 to July 1. We have seen several isolated radio flares of varying magnitudes (20–50 mJy)
Is GRS 1915+105 A Microquasar?

An Unstable Central Disk in the Superluminal Black Hole X-Ray Binary GRS 1915+105
TLDR
The complicated X-ray intensity curve of this source can be described by the rapid removal and replenishment of matter forming the inner part of an optically thick accretion disk, probably caused by a thermal-viscous instability analogous to that operating in dwarf novae, but here driven by the Lightman-Eardley instability.
