The observations were carried out with the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope as the last large project before the upgrade of the telescope with phased array feed receivers (Apertif). The sample covers almost four orders of magnitude in radio power from logP1.4GHz=22.5W/Hz and 26.2W/Hz. We detect HI in absorption in 27%±5.5% of the objects. The detections are found over the full range of radio power. However, the distribution and kinematics of the absorbing HI gas appear to depend on radio power, the properties of the radio continuum emission, and the dust content of the sources. Among the sources where HI is detected, gas with kinematics deviating from regular rotation is more likely found as the radio power increases.In the great majority of these cases, the HI profile is asymmetric with a significant blue-shifted component. This is particularly common for sources with logP1.4GHz>24W/Hz, where the radio emission is small, possibly because these radio sources are young. The same is found for sources that are bright in the mid-infrared, i.e. sources rich in heated dust.In these sources, the HI is outflowing likely under the effect of the interaction with the radio emission. Conversely, in dust-poor galaxies, and in sources with extended radio emission, at all radio powers we only detect HI distributed in a rotating disk. Stacking experiments show that in sources for which we do not detect HI in absorption directly, the HI has a column density that is lower than 3.5x1017(Tspin/cf)cm-2. We use our results to predict the number and type of HI absorption lines that will be detected by the upcoming surveys of the Square Kilometre Array precursors and pathfinders (Apertif, MeerKAT, and ASKAP). Description: We expand the sample of radio sources presented in Gereb et al. (2014A&A...569A..35G, hereafter G14) and Gereb et al. (2015, Cat. J/A+A/575/A44, hereafter G15) to lower radio fluxes and radio powers. As in those studies, we selected the sources by cross-correlating the seventh data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey catalogue (SDSS DR7; York et al. 2000AJ....120.1579Y) with the Faint Images of the Radio Sky at Twenty-cm catalogue (FIRST; Becker et al. 1995ApJ...450..559B, See Cat. VIII/92). The sources lie above declination DE>10° and between 07h51m00s and 17h22m25s in right ascension. The sources are restricted to the redshift range 0.02<z<0.25, which is the redshift interval covered by the WSRT observing band, 1150-1400MHz. The sample of G14 and G15 was limited to sources brighter than 50mJy and consists of 101 sources. In the present study, we selected all sources that have radio core flux density 30mJy<S1.4GHz<50mJy. This includes 219 sources, of which 183 were successfully observed before the telescope was switched off for the upgrade of the receivers. File Summary:
