Don't connect it to the tower ground, unless you disconnect or
detune the tower.
Lay out a dozen radials, as long as you can make them.
Shorten your L a bit or, better, put a series capacitor in
line to tune out the inductive reactance. Don't worry about
where the resonant frequency is, just get a good match.
Any or all of these to get a good match. However, your efficiency
will be low unless you add radials or your tower is in the middle
of a salt-water marsh.
