Yes it is because of mesh try placing 4-5 solid aluminum sheets you will get KU band signals

It looks like you have a C-band dish - the shorter wavelength Ku band signals go straight through the holes on the mesh!

You either need to fit metal sheets to it as suggested above (will not be terribly befficient unless the sheets are specifically designed for the dish) or buy a Ku band dish.
