President come to Bay area for fund raising trip.

Obama’s two days in Bay Area: Y Combinator out, Walmart in - Politics Blog
In the Bay Area, Air Force One will touch down late Thursday, and Obama will head to the Los Altos home of biotech analyst and entrepreneur Anne Wojcicki, who will host an intimate tech round table discussion for 25 donors paying $32,400 for the opportunity.

No press coverage will be allowed on that event.

Wojcicki is the CEO and co-founder of the human genome research firm 23andMe, who married Google co-founder Sergey Brin in 2007. They’re now separated.

Then Obama will head to the Fairmont in San Jose for another DNC fundraiser — the second change in location for the event.

After Obama has collected the Democratic National Committee take from tech stars in Silicon Valley Thursday, he’ll overnight in the area.
Then on Friday, Obama will hit a Walmart in Mt. View to talk about energy efficiency, the White House says

First stop is here:
https://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&cp=q6x41w4tpd4m&lvl=19.5&dir=5.56&sty=b&q=los altos hills&form=LMLTCC

Presidential path should be from 280/El Monte to El Monte, Foothill (North) and then Fremont (West). Continue on Fremont until intersection of Fremont/Campo Vista lane. Path is marked off with "No Parking" signs.

Not sure if POTUS trip will be from limo from NUQ via 85. Or if it will be a helicopter trip from NUQ to an intermediate area and then a limo into Los Altos Hills.

During a recent trip to Facebook/Palo Alto, the POTUS was airlifted from a large field off of Sand Hill road. I walk on Rancho, and it was curious to see that part of the lower parking lot has been closed off and cleaned up with leaf blowers. Maybe to clean up FOD?

Here is an overview of the lower field:
https://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&cp=37.331666~-122.086025&lvl=18&sty=h&form=LMLTCC
Could potentially fly POTUS in, and get him on 280 and then to El Monte. The other route has been advertised via a string of "No Parking" signs. I'd need to see if there are similar signs around Cristo Rey Drive.

Here is a link to the Fairmont:

The WalMart stop is at San Antonio Shopping Center in Mountain View, near the intersection of El Camino and San Antonio.


Now, with all of these stops, what would be in your scan list?
Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department
Los Altos Police
Mountain View Police
BAYMACS
San Jose Police

Thanks Stealthguy05. I was wondering where they were chatting.

I saw support from BART PD (K9 unit), Santa Clara County Sheriff, Foothill/De Anza PD and Mountain View PD.

I heard activity on 483.21250 (Shoreline) from Mountain View. I heard some activity on 154.65000 (SCC Tac 4).

I was surprised I didn't hear any traffic on BAYMACS. Was there any coordination among the units on VHF and UHF?

When the POTUS arrived at NUQ for departure on Friday, I heard encrypted activity on several USSS frequencies. NAC was all NAC1.

Nortac is used by north county law agencies for coordination on events like this. BayMacs was not used this time, which I agree is strange. That being said, SVRCS will likely be used more often now for mutual aid.
