  • We present a very high signal-to-noise ratio composite spectrum created using 657 radio-selected quasars from the FIRST Bright Quasar Survey. The spectrum spans rest-frame wavelengths 900-7500 A. Additionally, we present composite spectra formed from subsets of the total data set in order to investigate the spectral dependence on radio loudness and the presence of broad absorption lines. In particular, radio-loud quasars are red compared to radio-quiet quasars, and quasars showing low… CONTINUE READING
