Hello i was wondering how would i go about installing a dish onto balcony railing i have see and heard about using a u-mount bracket to attach to the railing of a balcony but dont know where to get a u-mount bracket so i can install the dish
If the railing has a rectangular cross section.
I picked up a couple of these a few years back for ~$35 each.

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.
