Set the Top and Bottom text blocks where you want them, select all of the text blocks and use the Align/Distribute command and Distribute Spacing.

That doesn't work unfortunately because it takes the leader lines into account, so in the OP's example it would place the equal space between the arrow head of the uppermost note, and the top of the text box of the note below it.

You could set the callouts to have no leader lines then do as Pat suggested then reset the leader lines.

 

But maybe the Align/Distribute callouts tool in the modify menu would do what you want? I think it might.

It seem to work fine when you select 'insertion point' instead of spacing.

No need to hide leader line. At least that is what I see in my set up.

That'll only work if all your text boxes are the same height.
