If I have two vertical antennas, one resonates at 5mHz and the other resonates at 550mHz, Why would the feed impedance differ?:eek:

If ALL the dimensions are scaled precisely, the feedpoint impedance will be the same. However, you must scale the diameter of the conductors as well; a conductor that looks like a piece of wire at 5 MHZ may look like a 55 gallon drum at 500 MHz!
