Probably the best set of articles on active antennas for low frequencies 
was written by Ralph Burhans in the March through June 1983 issues of 
Radio-Electronics magazine.  These are a great starting point with 
enough information to construct an excellent antenna.

We carried this work a bit further in the September 2001 issue of QST 
magazine but the Burhans articles are much more informative of the 
underlying principles.

Good luck on your project.
