1. A method for wireless communication at a UE, comprising:
generating uplink control information including a set of information bits for transmission in an uplink control message;
receiving, from the base station, a message indicating a set of symbols within an uplink control channel for the transmission of the uplink control message;
determining a frequency hopping position within the set of symbols for the transmission of the uplink control message based at least in part on a number of symbols in the set of symbols and a number of information bits in the set of information bits; and
transmitting, to the base station, the uplink control message including the uplink control information over a first frequency bandwidth of the uplink control channel during a first subset of symbols of the set of symbols and over a second frequency bandwidth of the uplink control channel during a second subset of symbols of the set of symbols according to the frequency hopping position.
