Measurements at wavelengths between 0.4 and 2.0 mm of a sample of 26 compact, flat spectrum radio sources are presented. These observations extend the known radio spectra of this class of sources to higher frequencies and show that most of these sources are still flat at short millimeter wavelengths. The spectral shapes are consistent with an inhomogeneous synchrotron model (with some degree of relativistic beaming); however, the lack of concurrent multifrequency data prevents more definite conclusions at this stage.
