There are a number of large all channel antennas still available. Winegard, Channel Master and RCA being at the top of my list. Be careful to compare the available space vs. the antenna dimensions.

The following models all have more VHF elements than your current antenna;
HD8200U (168.25" boom)
Advantage 60 (113" boom)
Advantage 100 (152" boom)
ANT3038E (150" boom)

I respect your preference to avoid outdoor mounting but reception of low-VHF, especially on the lowest channels is affected by significantly more interference than the UHF band. Often the sources of interference are right there inside your home, including the various electronics embedded in daily life. An antenna in the attic is partially blocked by the roof system and it's closer to the sources of interference.

I would suggest experimenting with outdoor reception at 5 to 10 feet above the roof peak.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
