I've been noticing lately every day that Skywest has a CRJ200 fly SLC-OKC with the callsign SKW00Y. Is this a re-location flight?

This is its ATC callsign so that it can avoid callsign conflicts with other similar sounding callsigns of other carriers. Most all carriers are doing this now.

Also, this is done out of SLC since DL uses thru-flight numbers, and that flight number may be used with two different aircraft resulting in them possibly being airborne at the same time.

Certainly very common in UK skies.
Examples are BA173 LHR-JFK which uses the ATC callsign BAW37J, and BA299 LHR-ORD which uses BAW2H.

Every Lufthansa flight in and out of LHR uses a similar system, for example, to pick a random flight, LH4789 LHR-CGN uses the ATC callsign DLH1JC.

That is what I call a reliable and on time historical record. Only 6 minutes deviation day in day out across the history.

That is why Skywest runs a decent operation and Mesa is being escorted to the door in Cedar City!
