"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Also consider that this is just the payload.  You have to factor in the IP and UDP overhead as well to get the overall packet size, which is always significantly greater than the payload itself.
