Yes, this is legal. OH allows one-party consent for in-person communications or telephone recordings. This means only one of the parties involved in the conversation needs to know the recording is taking place. And the person recording the conversation/call can be the one who to make it.

Note:  I recording an out-of-state phone call the consent of all partied may be required, depending on the law of the other state.
