Repeating a movement of a same emitter.

Hi folks, I'm wondering how do I get to REPEAT a movement of an emitter in other frames. I'm not talking about looping or making seamless an emitter. I've checked the tutorials, but it isn't what I'm looking for. Let me try to give an example about wwhat I'm looking for:

Let's suppose I got a video with 300 frames. On frame 1 I got one emitter "horizontal bar" that comes from the bottom and cross the screen to top until frame 50. Now, on frame 60 I'd like to make this emitter REPEAT the action from the bottom to top (60-109) WITHOUT duplicating this emitter/action. At frame 130, I'd like to repeat this action again. So, is it possible to inform one emitter to repeat its range of action starting in other frame? How do I get to execute it?

Thanks in advance.

Why don't you want to add another emitter?

The easiest way to do this (and maybe only way) is to Copy the emitter, then paste it at the frame number you want it to start at.
