You noted that the number of packets was small and the link was lossy.

Is the link lossy because of congestion or because of noise?

If the former (congestion) then the advice of John Nagle (RFC 896)
is relevant.

If the latter (noise) then more complex measures are needed; for
example, a Session/Presentation layer Forward Error Correction
procedure.
