You can give this a try. Go to Michigan Database Alpena County page. Find the FCC tab and click. The next page scroll down to Browse FCC Data in Alpena County and click Display all FCC license in Alpena County. On the next page turn off all the green tabs highlighted and turn on Business Trunked.
The license is good yet but I don't know if it's still active.
Good luck

Touchstone Energy is like a holding(?) company. It is made up of many electric cooperatives across a few states, PIE&G and Homeworks being a couple of them.

I had to do some digging, they don't readily show up under Alpena or Presque Isle counties. If you look under FCC licenses in Presque Isle county as mentioned earlier, there is a license for PIE&G (WQHM929). It's a UHF trunking system with 4 or 5 sites across a few counties in the NE. The emission designator is not for DMR though. I seem to remember (don't quote me) that there was a utility in that area that was using MPT1327. I don't know for sure that this is the case for PIE&G but it seems like it is because they have data and voice emissions both listed on the license and it's not the standard emissions for DMR, P25, etc.
