Yes he was. I wasn't on myself, but I saw some tweets of people working him.

Unfortunately, I also saw that some lids were hammering the
transponder with high powered CW, making it difficult for someone with
just five watts to get in.

He plans to be on the next AO-7 pass, though if the high power CW lids
are still around, then it'll probably jump to Mode A before you're in
the footprint.
