Sorry, I meant that we could change the amount we encrypt - always encrypt four bytes instead of just the PN.

But thinking about this some more I understand @mikkelfj 's comment. If we encrypt the sample we'll have a hard time decrypting... Would it be reasonable to reduce the size of the sample for very short packets?
