The PB prefix is indeed from the Netherlands. I can assure you that a PB8
prefix has never been and will never be issued. Only PB0's are used, and
only in the 2x3 style, like PB0AAA. Never 2x2!
 
Special event stations normally have a PA6 prefix. So, if you are absolutely
sure this person was signing PB8PB/qrp, you had a QRP qso with a pirate
:-)).
