Somebody maybe knows a better way to do this, but I would (and have) used cron plus simple shell scripts to do this. While a lot of these things can be done without reloading a new rpt.conf, some can't. You can, for instance, have two available hang times, but the idrecording and courtesy tones are defined once. So your script would alternate between two rpt.conf files, renaming each to rptconf and reloading. 

I sort of have to get ready to go somewhere, and it'll take some time to fully detail what I've done for this, but this evening if someone else hasn't and you need step by step instructions, I'll work those up for you.

This is a pretty standard feature in most modern repeater controllers, however, since the configuration file needs to be changed in order to accomplish the same, I am uncertain how to make this happen…
