One of the creators of the Ghost Hunter programs approached the
Fund for UFO Research in the 90s, anonymously, seeking financial
support to help complete a UFO Detector that he had designed.

After several back and forth communications he acknowledged that
he was the creator of Ghost Hunters (obviously we didn't know
the name), and we never got a technical description of how his
device was supposed to work. But it shows that there were some
who wanted to fill the demand for a "reality" UFO program a
decade ago.

In the end, there was no further communication and he apparently
found that the Ghost Hunter genre was easy to expand on.
