What to do when the dimond 2 meter whip is too high on the tower to tune?  The SWR is not where i like it but my back prevents me from climbing the tower.

I don't see that there is anything to be short of taking down the antenna and adjusting it.

-Given the circumstances I would consider anything under 3:1 to be usable.

-What sort of SWR's are you finding?

-What type of coax are you using and how long is it?

The only way to fix the 'tuning' is to do it in person.  How about having someone else do the climbing/adjusting?

Consider a uhf/vhf antenna tuner. I would. MFJ-921 would be one to look at, and you could stay in your chair...
