The other responses I see are correct; the balcony must be capable of safely supporting the weight of the tower and equipment plus any other load that may be on it. The concrete structure must be capable of resisting all bending moments, including the wind loading on the tower and equipment. Concrete doesn't resist much bending unless it is properly reinforced with material capable of resisting tension. A failure of an architectural feature such as a balcony may be catastrophic. Get a professional analysis, signed by someone licensed to analyze and approve your proposal, to limit your personal liability.
