It sort of depends on the type of balcony railing and the apparment management. Techs use something like this.

Alternative:
If the railing has a rectangular cross section.
I picked up a couple of these a few years back for ~$35 each.
Highly recommend.
Steren Mount

The mount that samrs posted is designed for wooden posts - if your balcony just has a metal railing it won't be strong enough to handle the wind loading on the slimline dish and you would need to use a non-penetrating mount on the balcony floor.

The rail mount is not just intended for wood it can be used on either.
