Abstract: We have been studying the spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of radio selected objects: the core-jet flat-spectrum low-luminosity objects from the 200-mJy sample (0.01 < z < 0.28) and the relativistic-jet flat-spectrum objects from the Caltech-Jodrell Bank (CJF) sample (0.01 < z < 3.8). We compare the radio luminosity range and peak frequency distribution of different samples, and we do not find evidence for the “blazar sequence”, a model that proposes an anti-correlation between synchrotron peaks and radio power. We conclude that the luminosity is not the main parameter that controls the jet SED’s colour.
