He assists clients in identifying and acquiring wireless spectrum through a variety of means, including spectrum leasing, purchase and sale of licenses, and the FCC's auction process. His spectrum acquisition practice spans all of the FCC’s wireless frequency allocations, including the 220 MHz band, AMTS (217/219 MHz), VHF/UHF Part 22 Paging, the 1.4 GHz band, Part 90 800/900 MHz bands, MAS, the 2.5 GHz EBS/BRS band, and the 700 MHz band.

Mr. Kunkle counsels clients that become involved in the FCC's enforcement process including by responding to and vigorously defending against complaints and investigations and, where appropriate, negotiating settlements with the Commission.

His practice also involves supporting companies seeking equipment authorizations before the FCC as well as license-exempt operation under part 15 of the FCC’s rules.

Prior to joining Keller and Heckman, Mr. Kunkle was an attorney at a boutique Washington, DC telecommunications law firm where he counseled a wide range of clients including wireless and wireline service providers (e.g., resellers and prepaid providers), with FCC compliance issues. Mr. Kunkle assisted carrier clients with complex compliance matters before the FCC including issues regarding USF, slamming, enhanced services and related issues and aided a variety of clients, including carriers and end users, with transactional matters.

Mr. Kunkle is a frequent speaker on wireless regulatory issues at major telecommunications conferences throughout the United States and contributes regularly to industry publications.
