Not sure how much this will help, but here's a link to finding cell towers in your area. You can type in a city and state, and the search will show the cell towers in that area. Then you can click on the tower for identification. US Cellular has tower/carrier agreements with Sprint and Verizon, so your phone will not always be using an actual USCC tower.

There's a USCC tower near me that looks like a giant flag pole. Their name is on the chain link fence.

"OpenSignalMaps" might help: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal
