Operations ManualsĀ 

The Cactus Operations Manual is updated annually to incorporate various changes made through-out the system during the year. The Operations Manual is available in a 6" x 8" mini size or a digital PDF copy that comes on a USB thumb drive. The Cactus Operations Mini Manuals have a laminated front and rear cover and a spiral binding, allowing the manual to be folded back on itself for use during traveling. The digital-format PDF Cactus Operations Manual is a read-only file in PDF file format supplied on a USB Drive. There are several additional files on the USB Drive including programming files for various radios with all the sites and frequency updates, a Cactus Link map and GPS location file.

Cactus Intertie members and affiliate representatives are encouraged to pre-order manuals to ensure availability. Cactus Intertie members may pre-order using the PayPal link below. Affiliate representatives who wish to pre-order manuals (or quantities of other items) for their affiliate group, can send an e-mail to Cactus Intertie Inc. at:  materials (@) cactus-intertie (dot) org. Please indicate the quantity of each item desired (minimum pre-package order quantity is 20). Materials Management will contact you and inform you of the cost of the order. Provisions for payment will be determined at that time. The order will be packaged and ready for pick-up at the Annual Meeting or may be shipped.  All pre-orders must be received by Cactus on or before the forth week in February, in each given year, to meet our printing deadline and ensure delivery.

Pre-order manuals purchased online will be shipped out in March of each given year, if ordered before the February deadline noted above.  There will be only a limited number of additional copies printed, in addition to the total pre-orders, so order early otherwise you may not be able to receive a manual later in the year.  Orders are filled on a first-come-first-served basis.  Once they are all gone, they are gone until next year.

Quick Reference CardsĀ 

The Quick Reference Prefix Card is a two (2) sided card that lists all the site names, the prefix, frequency and CTCSS for all sites on the Cactus Intertie System.  It comes in two sizes and are laminated for protection.

The Quick Reference Function Card lists the common standard control functions for most Cactus sites.  This card is also laminated and comes in just one size.

Pictures of the cards are not available because they contain Cactus Intertie System proprietary information.
