What is a BiPush Exciter circuit (4-25 ?)

I ran across an ad in a 1939 magazine for a 4 band transmitter using a
BiPush circuit.  The transmitter covers 4 bands, 25 watts out, no plug-in
coils and no band switch.  It appears to be using two 6L6GT's and a 807.

The ad reads "The 4-25 is foolproof, has no tricky adjustments, and may
be keyed or modulated.  Originated by Mr. Smith W6BCX in December (1938)
issue of radio.  40 watts of output and 15 watts Dynapush.  5 seconds to
change bands.  4 bands, 25 watts output."

Anyone know what the circuit actual is ?   Sounds like something that
would be fun to build.  They also have an ad for a better exciter the
"XT3" that replaces the Bi-Push that has equal output on all bands (25
watts), changes bands in 4 seconds, no trick circuits, no neutralzing
known as the Smith Exciter.

Both of these sound like something we need today.  Hi  Both came from the
Radio Supply company in LA.
