High-tech help connects fans to off-the-grid Iditarod race

In this Tuesday, March 5, 2019 photo, signs are posted outside the war room, a converted hotel room in Anchorage, Alaska, for those coordinating logistics for the Iditarod Air Force, which includes about 30 small airplanes and a helicopter. Several hotel rooms and work space areas have been converted into so-called war rooms to allow race officials and volunteers to track mushers on the trail, conduct aircraft dispatching for volunteers flying people, dogs and supplies to checkpoints and video and Internet communications for the race.
