A list of State QSO party’s are listed at the website below.  There are other websites but this is the  one I have always checked. This is a great way to work all states or see how far you can reach.  Just because we are at a low sunspot cycle is not a reason to get on the air. If every one thought that way then no one would be on the air.

As of 29 JAN 2018 the sun has now been void of Earth facing sunspots for 9 days in a row. Not too shocking since we continue to slowly make our way towards the next solar cycle minimum expected during the next few years. There will likely be no chance for noteworthy solar flares during the next several days.
