We landed houghton hancock, mi, uncontrolled field, runway 31, wind 110 at 6 KTS. When we landed we saw a twin engine aircraft at opp end of runway in position for takeoff. We used charted (aas) frequency 123.6 which I later found to be an obsolete frequency since FSS has shut down. Frequency should have been 122.7, which was not notamed or on any approach plates! I tried to get a response on a traffic check (required by company), but assumed after fourth try that their radio may have become inoperative. It was not closed, but I was very concerned.
