How to wait for spectrum analyzer averaging to complete before reading

I am trying to read the channel power from a PXA using the commands shown in the attached file. There is quite a bit of averaging applied and the last transaction tries to read the power before the averaging is complete, resulting in the error also shown in the attached. If I insert a wait transaction before the last line that is longer than the averaging time it works ok.

I thought the *WAI command in line 11 was going to prevent the analyzer from processing more commands until the averaging sweeps were done but I must be missing something.

Any advice on how to wait until averaging is done before reading, without inserting a wait that will add unnecessary measurement time when not needed?
