Length of public key

I am a bit of a newbie when it comes to PGP/GnuPG, but having read
pretty much all of the documentation I can find, there is still one
issue which is baffling me.

I have uploaded my key to the wwwkeys.gpg.net keyserver, and have tested
sending and recieving it. After doing so however, I noticed that if I
export my public key using gpg in armor mode, the gpg public key is
about twice the length of the public key listed on the key server. Is
this normal?
