Essentially identical.

Are you making some assumptions here?  What is I have a perfectly resonant
coax fed dipole at 3850 KHz at 140 feet and run 200 watts CW.  Now compare
this to a 30 foot long piece of wire at 20 feet fed directly with a tuner at
the same frequency.  Is ERP affected in this case?
