Q:But what am I hearing? 4-5 stations transmitting simultaneously? Or 10 stations transmitting simultaneously?
A: Depending on the band, you might be hearing 5, 10, 20, 30 signals or more at the same time. 

Q:Also, if there are so many transmitting at the same time, how does the receive software determine what it's decoding?
A: The mode/software is pretty amazing.  There is some very detailed reading as to how it goes about doing what it does on the WSJTX page.   Timing is very important with the software and having the computer clock synced within about 1 second is needed.

Q:Does it decode all 5 or 6 signals simultaneously, all being decoded at the same time?
A:  Yes, decodes all of them at the same time.  The user sees this decode right at the end of the 15 second cycle. It's not exactly 15 seconds, but for the purpose of basic understanding, it's 15 sec TX and 15 sec RX.

Q:Do some FT8 signals get flooded out by the stronger signals?
A: Yes, but also again the mode/software is pretty resilient.  It can decode signals that are right on top of each other often times.
