Oh, "wonderful" multipath sound, such I have not yet heard with digital 
signals.  I think, Olivia 64-2000 has, compared with the tones of 
MFSK32, a better pulse shape.
The larger signal width (2000 Hz) enables a better *separation* between 
the signs.
Maybe, the OLIVIA-combination of more audio tones + higher signal width 
is the reason for the excellent multipath performance.
Here are both sound-examples in visual comparison - MFSK32-signs over 
multipath extremly blurred:


"....At a given time only one of those 32 tones is being sent. The 
demodulator measures the amplitudes of all the 32 possible tones (using 
a Fourier transform ) and (knowing that only one of those 32 could have 
been sent) picks up the tone with the highest amplitude...."
