Single frequency Sweep in 33522A Arbitary waveform generator

I need to perform single freq sweep 20MHz to 2 MHz log down only once. Which is the best way.

* I set trigger to bus trigger and then enter set start , stop frequency and sweep time. 
* I give RF ON command. But when I give software trigger, the sweep completes and returns to 20 MHz. 
* TO overcome this , I have manually set a delay time equal to sweep time to ensure that the sweep completes and then issue RF OFF command.

Please suggest a better way to achieve a single log down sweep 20 MHz-2MHz.

I suspect that some time is taken by RF ON-OFF relays and full frequency sweep till 2 MHz is not achieved. 

Please suggest.
