Summary form only given. We demonstrated the usefulness of a new technique for making time-resolved measurements of BER and OSNR. As an example, we measured the OSNR and the BER of a surviving channel as the channel loading was varied by 100%. A severe drop of 5 dB in OSNR was observed despite the fact that the channel power decreased by 3 dB only.
