I believe there is a USCG 1708 C-130 based out of CGAS Sacramento. It's missing from your list.

I think It's on loan to the USFS as fire fighting aircraft. I see it flying around on Mode S receiver.

This is USFS Tanker 116. It is the first of 7 USCG C-130's that will be transferred to the USFS and converted to air tankers over the next few years. It's been doing test flights up in the Sierras east of Sacramento over the last couple months.

Ok. It's still broadcasting the 1708 callsign.
