Well, not quite. You've said "In order that I record it, you can receive
it." A <-meH> clause is called a "purpose clause" - the main sentence is
done for the puprose of the verb with <-meH>. This is basically the opposite
of your sentence.

What you really want to say is one of the following:

boHevlaHmeH vIqonta' - I have recorded it so that you can receive it.
vIqonta'mo' boHevlaH - Because I have recorded it, you can receive it.
