We report the discovery of weak radio counterparts for the hard X-ray sources GX 354-0 and Terzan 1. Based on the arcsec accurate radio position, an infrared counterpart with magnitude [FORMULA] is proposed for GX 354-0. For Terzan 1, its crowded field prevents us from a similar unambiguous identification, and at least four different stellar objects may be consistent with the radio counterpart.
