No, a call sign is restriced to a 4 character suffix.

Unfortunately, nothing restricts 7 character calls to be alphabetic in
all but the third position.  The World Cup callsigns were a good example
of this (DQ2006A to DQ2006Z).  Also, nothing restricts countries like
the USA with single letter prefixes from using a 1x5 format (K5AAAAA for
instance).
