PTZ IR controlled turntable to move small indoor antenna
Here is the finished IR controlled turntable. It will be completed by my daughter from this point.
I am happy with the results and learned some more about coding thanks to BrainyBits.

Happy Arduino Day 2017
I hope you all enjoy Arduino day 2017...I hope to spend even a little time today writing some code.
Arduino has made programming and making a reality for me.
It was a small investment to make with great rewards in satisfaction.

PTZ IR controlled turntable to move small indoor antenna
This is a "starter" Arduino project my daughter wants to make...it was challenging for me to do. Many thanks to Yvan and Brainy Bits for the sample code that was used to make this all work. 
I wanted to help with the mechanical and coding, while allowing room to make changes with operation such as adding "favorites". Even loading the IDE and making changes to sample code will be a good learning experience.
The project uses a salvaged Pelco PTZ turntable...but not the built in stepper.
I instead used the 28BYJ-48 stepper with the ULN2003 driver board. The antenna weighs only ounces, and I tested with 2 lbs of weight and it turns fine.

Controlling a 28BYH-48 stepper motor using ULN2003 stepper motor driver, arduino and potentiometer
Hi mcmailman, 
There are a few other tutorials that actually use the stepper that you are referring to.
You may have to blend the code from the two tutorials to get what you are looking to do.
This is what I find usually happens, and can take the most time to adapt. 
That however is where most of the ( hard fought for) learning does come from.
