9' Tank Whip - http://www.thunderpole.co.uk/tank-whip.html (make sure your groundplane is sufficient though)
or any of the homebase cb aerials, although I would exclude the excalibur if you were already using an internal antenna, one of the homebase aerials should suit your setup. http://www.thunderpole.co.uk/cbhomebaseantenna.htm

On either UK19 or if you cant find me there try UK26.

Oddly enough, Thunderpole do a specific balcony antenna - called the Boomerang!!

I have one myself. Is very good!
It's not about luck, it's about skill.

I remember a block of flats in Leeds that had a Antron 99 on 6ft of pole and it was just leaned against the balcony and tied.
