OK, so as promised...

First, you'll set up two files in /etc/asterisk:
for example.

In each file, set up your tones, hang times, ID's, etc. the way you want them. 

All you need is two quick and dirty shell scripts. I have a similar thing set up for "net mode" and "normal mode". Put these in /etc/asterisk/scripts

Seriously, when I say "quick and dirty", mine really are. No error handling, no nothing except commands to make the changes I want.

For example, here's my "regmode" script, which puts the repeater into normal operation:

asterisk -rx "rpt localplay 2331 regmode"
sleep 3
asterisk -rx "rpt fun 2331 *11500*901093*11500"
sleep 1
cp -fs /etc/asterisk/rpt.conf.use /etc/asterisk/rpt.conf
sleep 1
asterisk -rx "rpt reload"
exit 0

The -fs switch on the cp command forces the copy (so it will copy without prompting), and creates a symbolic link instead of an actual copy. 

The script to change to netmode is similar, except of course the net repeater configuration is copied/linked. 

Be sure to set these as executable with chmod.

Call them from crontab in the usual fashion (if you need help with the syntax, happy to help)

In each rpt.conf file, you'll set up a command that will execute the script. If this is meant to be a toggle, you can use the same command in both scripts. For example,

in your rpt.conf.night file and
in /etc/asterisk/rpt.conf.day

This way, you can change these either manually or automatically, as you like. Changing execution times or parameters is then just a matter of modifying a couple files. 

Clear as mud?

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…
