1. An eNB comprising:
a configuration circuit configured to configure a configuration for a first physical uplink control channel (PUCCH), wherein the configuration includes a start physical resource block (PRB) and number of contiguous PRBs in a frequency domain in a time slot for the first PUCCH in RRC signaling, and a second PUCCH (Format 3),
wherein the second PUCCH occupies one PRB in a time slot, and
wherein three bits are used for indicating the number of contiguous PRBs.
