What was the standard radio fit for P-40 B and E models?

I'm not sure if this answers your question, but the Squadron/Signal book "P-40 Warhawk in Action" indicates that the Model H-81A-2, equivalent to the P-40B, and the P-40D used the SCR-283 radio.  I couldn't find a specific listing for the P-40E, which is very similar to the D model.  The P-40 Warhawk Pilot's Operation Manual indicate that two radios were used in the P-40, the VHF 522-A and the SCR 274-N.
