Yes. Oregon is a "one party" state which means that only one party of the conversation needs to consent to the recording.

This means that you, or somebody who has given priorconsent, needs to be in the conversation (recording a conversation between neighbors when none of them know would be illegal).

However, all parties must be informed of the recording. So, if you always record your calls, you can simply answer the phone with something like, "Hello, this call is being recorded. Go ahead."

Find an attorney if you're trying to record a conversation across state lines, as some states have other laws about that.

Basically, you need to be in the conversation, tell the other person you're recording, and then it's good.

IANAL

Applicable Laws under Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS):

§165.535 Definitions applicable to obtaining contents of communications

§165.540 Obtaining contents of communications

§165.543 Interception of communications
