Longer answer: At 100 MHz, wavelength in copper is ~2m.
Anything longer than 1/4 wave (50 cm) can function as an
antenna (form standing waves) if tuned.
I've successfully used extremely short cables 3"/7cm between
two ethercards in one machine. The shortest I've ever used
is 1.2"/3cm total copper inside a loopback plug.

A properly terminated transmission line does not have standing waves.
