Yes, and they were all negative! If you can find a used,
but still good R7, seems to have been much better.
The R7000 almost certainly will not take full power on
any band in RTTY service.
If you really want a vertical for a particular band, I
would suggest you look at the monoband Gladiators.
for info about the Gladiators.
I have them for 30 on up through 10 meters. Do not
have space for radials for the lower bands, so I use
long wires for 160 to 80, and a rotating dipole,
F12 EF-140Ss for 40, part of my C4 beam.
