love CW but I would say to avoid CW on AO-7 unless using QRPp (5 watts or less).
AO-7 has switched off mode B yesterday (Saturday 2/APR around 17:00 UTC) over South America due a strong CW signal present on the TP.

In addition to FO-29, the following satellites have linear transponders
available for use:
Watch your power on CW - especially on AO-7. A very strong CW signal can
make the transponder useless for others, and in the case of AO-7, cause it
to mode jump at certain times of the year.
