Yeah, I guess the model could be used a an indicator of the impedance. Thats why I'm really wanting to get a NanoVNA V2 to give me some real life numbers.

Those are free space numbers. I don't think modeling will tell you as much about VSWR in any given installation as you would want. It is very sensitive to the surroundings like buildings and height above ground and what kind of ground you have. Swamp is quite different from mountain top.
