Yes, a Q of 7 is OK at that impedance if harmonics at only 24db are
acceptable.
MultiOp stations are more interested in 35 to 40db.
With such low Q one should make use of PiL.

If you want a Q of 12, values of about 430pf, 4.6 uH, 1900 pF do work.
But you really only need a Q of about 7 to comfortably match 1000 Ohms
to 50 Ohms. The Q of 12 rule was created in the days of higher
impedance tubes.
