[R] Equal vertical spaced labels on plot with log="y"

I have a series of labels that I want to place on a plot with a log scale y axis. I want these labels to be equally spaced vertically as seen on the plot.

I have been trying this:

ylab <- 160 - log2(1:length(labels))

but that does not seem to work (where 160 is basically the top of the plot).

Any ideas?
