Yes, absolutely, get on and work them!

Just a general FYI - AO-7 is starting to get more stable. For the past
several months, it has often been weak and very susceptible to random
mode switches, but I've noticed that over the past several days, it's
been much better. I suspect this has to do with the angle of the sun
on the aging solar panels during the northern summer months being less
than optimal, and that it's now improving. That's speculation, of
course, but regardless get on and use it!
