Let us use a 2 transmitter setup for simplicity sake
Imagine if you will, a  method to lock out one transmitter while  
another is in use.
Now imagine this lockout operating very quickly. One transmitter, then  
the other in rapid sequence are transmitting - and since only one is  
transmitting at any given time, there is only one signal on the air.  
Do it fast enough, and the Ops on the other end will hear what seems  
like a normal signal. Two stations, two Ops, two simultaneous QSOs,  
and only one transmitter on the air at any given time.

This is not science fiction here.

It's how it was explained to me by people a lot smarter than myself,  
in this very group. They might be of some help if my explanation  
wasn't good enough,
