    Abstract

    We examine the different QPOs seen in X-ray Binaries for an analogous signal to the first AGN QPO. Simple mass scaling rules out the low-frequency and standard high-frequency QPOs. However, the rather unique 67 Hz QPO of GRS1915+105 scales to imply the source is accreting at around Eddington as supported by the SED. The 67 Hz QPO is seen when GRS1915+105 is in a very similar spectral state to that of REJ1034+396 and the power spectrum continuum slopes below the QPOs, are consistent. The difference in normalisation is suggested to be intrinsic and subsequent bandpass corrections yield consistent values.
