Abstract: The VSOP Survey Program will observe a complete survey of flat-spectrum sources at 5 GHz. In order to determine which of the sample sources are strong and small enough to be detected with VSOP, a pre-launch survey of 377 continuum sources north of delta > -43 deg was conducted at 5~GHz with the VLBA over 24 hours in June 1996. About 250 of the sources had correlated flux densities >= 0.4 Jy between MK-SC and have been included in the VSOP survey sample.
