We present total flux densities of 1049 radio sources in the frequency range from 151 MHz to 10.6 GHz. These sources belong to the B3-VLA sample, which is complete down to 100 mJy at 408 MHz. The data constitute a homogeneous spectral database for a large sample of radio sources, 50 times fainter than the 3C catalogue, and will be used to perform a spectral ageing analysis, which is one of the critical points in understanding the physics and evolution of extragalactic radio sources.
