Correct me if I'm wrong, but ...
anacron will run jobs after the system has been down for a while.
It only needs a regular crontab entry at all so that if your system is
up for more than one day, those jobs are run again. Hence it needs a regular
time to run.
ie your system does not need to be up at 07:30 -- that is the whole
point of anacron.
