I don't know if the original key was from a Mac. I got no issues when I imported the original key to PGP Desktop (v9.8). The original key can be also read by the PGPdump tool (http://www.pgpdump.net/) without any issues.

Breaking up the lines and removing the unicode header I got a file that would
