Thanks for your question and good evening.
Both Colorado and Ohio are one party consent states.That means as long as one party consents to the recording there is not a problem in taping the conversations.In both states as long as you do the taping you are consenting so that there is not a problem recording such a conversation as long as it is not used for an illegal purpose.

Are there any interstate issues with the FCC or Fed?
Not as long as you are not using this for illegal purposes say blackmail.If you are wanting to use it in say a court proceeding then this would be legal for you to tape your phone conversations with her as there is one party consent to do so.Federal law only requires that at least one party taking part in the call must be notified of the recording (18 U.S.C. §2511(2)(d))
