Furthermore, there have been claims that radio loudness depends on black hole mass (MBH) and Eddington ratio (Lbol/LEdd).We investigate these claims using the low- redshift broad line AGN sample of Greene & Ho (2007ApJ...667..131G), which consists of 8434 objects at z<0.35 from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Fourth Data Release (SDSS DR4). We obtained radio fluxes from the Very Large Array Faint Images of the Radio Sky at Twenty-centimeters (FIRST) survey for the SDSS AGN. Out of the 8434 SDSS AGNs, 821 have corresponding observed radio fluxes in the FIRST survey. File Summary:
